We as believers are born into a very real battle, the day you become one with Christ the enemy painted a bull’s-eye on your back. The enemy has been attacking you with thoughts that repeats themselves over and over again, thoughts of failure, thoughts of fear, thoughts of worthlessness, you have panic attacks. The attacks of the enemy often manifest in an overwhelming sense of anxiety. We’re under attack, but it’s not an ambush you know the enemy is coming.
1 Peter 5:8 - Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.
That means that you can see him, that you can hear him. That means that he is giving you a warning before the warfare begins.We act surprise when go through a struggles or go through hard situations.Then the true battle begins, and we act like we weren’t warn, this lion the devil is not silent he lets you know he’s coming.
If you are under attack you stand firm, most people will run when you face lion, running seems to be the reasonable thing to do when facing a lion. But when you run the devil knows he has you. Instead stand your ground and resistance. It’s a certain type of resistance, to those who are under attack you need to come under the mighty hand of God.
1 Peter 5:6-7 - Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
We need to understand that the mighty hand of God is still raining over our lives, humble yourself under the mighty of God. The Hand of God represents his plan, God’s hand is not like any other your hand, you deftly know the effects of it when it moves.
To those who are under attack, to those who are depress, under condemnation, dealing with failures, those who hit rock-bottom, to those who are freaking out, crying yourself to sleep.
You have the upper hand, the hand of God, the hand of God is mighty, the hand of God is strong, the hand of God is over your life, you will prevail.
If you are under attack you need to know that the hand of God is guiding you, the hand of God is leading you, the Hand of God will make a way where there is no way.
God bless, Israel
