Faith to face adversary!
Verse for Today: Wednesday, January 23, 2013
Psalms 60:11 – O give us help against the adversary, for deliverance by man is in vain.
Those who know the fierceness of their adversary will always seek the help of someone who is stronger than the adversary to fight for him and to deliver them. Our spiritual adversary is powerful, brutal and cunning and is capable of using subtle tactics to defeat us. He will try to weaken us by developing negative thoughts in us to drain our courage and confidence. He will tempt us to use our own strength to face him which will definitely defeat us. He works in our circumstances and situations by trying to complicate and confuse all events that take place around us. He will make false allegations and accusations through others to darken our testimony. Our adversary is good at making stories about us and knows how to spread it around to tarnish our image. He will try to replace our spiritual motive with material and temporal goals. He often strikes us when we are physically weak and tired. If we keep our minds idle, he knows how to make it a workshop to produce ungodly plans and priorities. Our adversary is a shameless troublemaker who keeps coming back to use all the darts in his armor to defeat us. He will use our employers, associates, neighbors, friends and even members of our family to work against us. He knows how to give us advice to make us commit blunders in our businesses to lead us into heavy losses and failures. He comes in the form of an angel of light with attractive ideas which might look lucrative and thus lure us into evil ways. When he uses multifarious tactics to defeat us, we need the mighty power of our God to deliver us from his clutches. We will find that help from other human beings will not be of any use because no human being measures up to our adversary. We need to go to God and declare ourselves defeated and surrender our failures to Him and ask for deliverance. Our God will answer us and will come down to give us victory in our spiritual warfare. He will deliver us from the cunning and conniving warfare of the adversary and help us to march forward victoriously.
Dear friend, are you aware of the tactics of the enemy of your soul to defeat you? Do you know how formidable an adversary he is? Is he trying to defeat you through negative thoughts, indecision, withdrawal, self isolation, self pity, guilt, stubbornness and anxiety? But if you go to God with a deep desire for a release from the tactics of the adversary, He will revive and restore you. He will give you a positive outlook to life based on the wonderful promises He has given you in His Word. He will help you through His Spirit to make the right decisions at the right time. He will bring you out of your self-imposed isolation, withdrawal and self-pity. When He lays bare the wonderful plan He has for you, your self pity will give way to visions of brighter tomorrow. Your remorse about the wrong decisions you have taken in the past will lead you to humility and surrender of all your past failures to Him for renewal and restoration for a new beginning. Your anxiety will disappear in the brightness of the glory of the Lord which will strengthen your faith. You will no longer need to look for help from the experts of the world around you or its systems and technology. Your Lord will teach you to trust Him and depend on Him for deliverance from the adversary. He will remind you that you are the prince and princess of the Great King of Kings. The attempts of the adversary will fail as you will be kept safe in the arms of Jesus as His precious child.
Psalms 121:2 – My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.
