Jesus is our Way of escape, from ALL we face, therefore, it is no time to shrink back from God, when life happens - that is the time to RUN TO God, not away from Him!! The devil wants you to lose faith in God; don’t allow his plans to succeed!! God in you is GREATER than the devil or anybody else, trying to come against you! The devil uses people, just as God do, so the people you see, who are fighting against you, are being used by the devil! But don’t be afraid because God got you (Isaiah 41:10)!! Let God fight your battles when they come up, and you whole your peace!
Remember, what Ephesians 6:12 says, “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”
The Living Bible (TLB) version of that same Scripture says, “For we are not fighting against people made of flesh and blood, but against persons without bodies—the evil rulers of the unseen world, those mighty satanic beings and great evil princes of darkness who rule this world; and against huge numbers of wicked spirits in the spirit world.”
We cannot fight spiritual things, with natural weapons! We are in a spiritual war! That is why 2 Corinthians 10:3-6 says, “3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. 4 For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, 5 casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, 6 and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.”
God's blessings to you all and your families,
