“Then he [Jesus] called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases. Then he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick.” (Luke 9:1-2)
“And he [Jesus] said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” (Luke 10:18-19)
Christ has already paid the ultimate price! We are more than conquerors through him who loves us (Romans 8:37). There is no need to despair, but to trust him!
As a believer in Christ, God says to you as He said to Israel “I have loved you with an everlasting love and with loving kindness I have drawn you to me” (Jer 31:3).
Are you going through anything now? Sometimes our afflictions seem endless, but as God spoke through the prophet Isaiah to comfort Jerusalem, his precious city, so too I bring this word of comfort to you, His precious one “your
“…warfare is accomplished,..iniquity is pardoned…Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain: and the glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see [it] together: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken [it].” (Isaiah 40:2,4,5 KJV).
Yes, the afflictions of a believer are only temporarily and God intends for His glory to be revealed in our lives, so indeed if we suffer there is an ultimate purpose for the glory of God.
When Jesus said on the CROSS “it is finished” (John 19:30) that is exactly what he meant! When he died for our sins and rose again the third day, our warfare was declared over.
We only need to take hold of this truth and keep it at the forefront of our minds. We need not fret as long as we live in obedience to God’s Word.
This is because God will always thwart the plans of the enemy, counteract the will of Satan and work all things out for our GOOD! (Psalm 33:10-12/Romans 8:28) To God be the glory great things He has done!!
Hi there, God has given born again believers the strength we need to overcome every affliction.
Firstly we are His and therefore He is our protector and sustainer and secondly because we have the indwelling Holy Spirit, who is God himself strengthening us by His power, so that we can bear every affliction until it is over.
Think of the wisdom we acquire as we stay close to God during our times of affliction. God says He will never leave us nor forsake us. Have a blessed day Deborah x
God so loved the World that He sent His only begotten Son Jesus Christ, that whosoever believes in Him will not perish but have everlasting life.
God longs to show us His love (which brings peace) and for us to live in the realm of His love, while demonstrating His love to others as “God’s Bridge of Love”
God’s Bridge of Love:
You are a bridge of love for your neighbour to traverse and progress in my love, no more to transgress nor regress and drown in sin. Your neighbor is one who favours my conditional love or labours for artificial love.
Pour thy love upon me that my treasury shall release plenty into thy poverty, and you shall see my face unveiled, for at my gaze shall you know thy worth.
When you walk with me as my bride and talk of me with pride, as a living sacrifice, and demonstrate my love to the loveless, promote my Word to enemies and use the key of forgiveness,
Then shall I draw near to you, and shall show you forth as a shofar with the sound “GOD IS LOVE”. A passage of refuge for multitudes to know and abide in my LOVE.
Background: This prophetic poem was borne out of what happened on Wed (25th May 2016), in the morning on my way to work I had a vision of a waterfall and I had this sense that it represents a gushing down of blessings from God the Father. About two hours later a Sister in Christ sent me this picture of a waterfall via messenger, after work I felt inspired to write this poem. It is a word that is not for me alone, this is a season when the floodgates of heaven are open for a mighty outpouring of what multitudes have been seeking the LORD for. Partner with Him in obedience and faithfulness to see His will/promises come to pass.
There it is in plain sight: “Blessed is the man who trusts in Him”. Blessings of God; Your inheritance as a believer; good health, prosperity, breakthrough, protection etc… are yours when you trust in Him and as believers it is through Messiah Yeshua (Christ Jesus).
Truly, trusting in God is a decision we make and He gives us the grace for it to be a reality in the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit.
Many who make that decision know that it is truly His Grace bestowed upon them that keeps them trusting and nothing they have done in themselves.
The knock on effect is that again and again they “taste and see” or experience the reality that ELOHIM GOD is GOOD !!
My prayer is that we will trust or continue trusting in the LORD, so that all that pertains to us through Him will manifest in our lives.
Would you like to always be a living testimony of His GOODNESS? I would! May God help us to continue to trust Him wholeheartedly
