Know Who You Are – God Has Equipped You
Yes, many of you are living in such a state of defeat in your minds that you can’t imagine that you really are the overcomer that God says you are? 33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in Me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. John 16:33. God has equipped you as an overcomer by and with the Word of God. 10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might. 11 Put on the Whole Armor of God that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. Eph. 6:10-11.
Remember that Satan is the father of lies. Soon after the victory, he will try to tell you that you were never delivered in the first place. He will try to deceive you by counterfeiting your past symptoms of fear. He will most certainly try to attempt you with the easy way out the next time fear comes along. What do you do?
Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
God has equipped you with all that you need to do it. 4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds). 5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ. 2 Cor. 10:4-5.
Again, casting down every wayward imagination and bringing every fearful thought to the obedience of Christ will be agonizing at first, but you are not alone. It is all a part of qualifying for God’s Army! The Apostle Peter described a blow-by-blow account of these spiritual battles and their outcomes: 8b That enemy of yours, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion [fiercely hungry], seeking someone to devour. 9 But resist him, be firm in your faith [against his attack—rooted, established, immovable], knowing that the same experiences of suffering are being experienced by your brothers and sisters throughout the world. 1 Peter 5:8b-9.
REMINDER: KNOW WHO YOU ARE – GOD HAS EQUIPPED YOU!!!
Love you and the Blessings of God be upon you.
