*Let this God inspired writing...from His heart to yours, become a strategy
that can ward off the works of evil.
Life has it's up's and down's for sure. One day, the sun can be shining brightly within the heart...with the sweet aroma of God's presence everywhere, while other days the sun seems to hide behind darkened clouds, as the presence of evil attempts to hide the light of day that once made life beautiful.
When these moments come into play; they seem to pull on our weaknesses, in a strategic way...and that is when these darkened clouds have now become the battlefield between good and evil.
As evil takes aim...to destroy the soul and remove it from the presence of God; it starts at the point of weakness. At first, the blows that come our way, are meant to instill fear within us...a fear that attempts to weaken the soul even more. As we turn to God, we become strengthened for the battle, which makes it even harder for the enemies strategy to take hold; so in return, the blows become even more painful, as the heat of this battle intensifies with greater struggles and obstacles to get over. There can be times, when these battles become so fierce; that all we want to do is run and hide...but where will that take us? For as long as we remain weak in spirit...Satan will continue to hunt us down, like a weak and wounded animal.
What we need is a better strategy...to fight off these evil forces; that are attempting to take us down. Once the enemy is destroyed; then we can live victorious...with a peace that can truly bring about a freedom that we never thought could ever be...but before we can even experience this true freedom; we need to be seen as strong in the Lord. We know that Satan is lurking around, for someone who is weak in spirit...and why? Because he doesn't hold a power within himself that is equal or greater in strength...to the strength of almighty God. As long as we are seen as a weak and vulnerable person, in the eyes of evil; then we will always remain as easy prey to evil.
What we truly need; is to let God prepare us for these greater battles, by exchanging our weaknesses, for His perfect strength. In turn...God's strength will help us to be seen as someone stronger than evil, which will help to keep the enemy distant from us...for the stronger we become in the Lord...and the more we grow spiritually through these difficult times...the weaker the enemy will become, which will eventually destroy him, while making the evil schemes that were once meant to destroy us...powerless before us...Amen!!
