Today I am taking a stand!
I am not going to stay quiet and allow the enemy to keep smacking people around.
I am going to speak up and make some NOISE louder than he could ever. So here goes nothing!
TAKE A STAND!
Do you not realize that he is taking you as his toy and prey! A bully is
YOU ARE NOT WEAK! GOD SAYS THAT YOU NOT!
With God we will gain the victory, and he will trample down our enemies.
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties.
For when I am weak, then I am strong.
2 Corinthians 12:10
Stop letting the devil smack you around! He is taking your home, your kids, your family, your church, your job, your mind, your goals, your vision, your plans…EVERYTHING and making a mockery out of it! He is a thief! Trying to rob you of your peace and joy! And he is moving QUICKLY!!! He will pursue us that have a purpose! He will pursue the weak! YES and that we ALL are as flesh beings BUT through GOD we are NOT! Which is precisely why God sent His Son so that we can gain the victory and CONQUER all this!
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy;
I have come that they may have life, and have it to the fullest.
YOU ARE NOT THE ONLY ONE!
Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. But resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same experiences of suffering are being accomplished by your brethren who are in the world.
1 Peter 5:8-9
There is a way out of this mess and stress! But you have to do something about it!
YOU HAVE TO TAKE A STAND!
We allow him to win when we give in to his nonsense, his lies, his heavy influence of us to do, go, and say everything contrary to the plans that God has for us.
You want to know how to win…and not just one fight, two fights or three but EVERY single time he comes at you! You have to be willing to fight him everywhere he tries to take you! There is this movie, “Never Back Down” and this guy was being tossed by another fighter. Until this young man took a stand! Even when he felt weak–he fought! He went through heavy training and became strong. That even when his enemy took him from the building challenge and even in the streets–the young man fought back and WON!
Don’t do what the enemy does–don’t accept those lies or that circumstance or that struggle, just move stronger through all of that through the POWER OF GOD THAT LIVES IN YOU!
ACTIVATE THAT POWER!
Activate! Engage! Work! Progress! Motion!
The enemy comes to STOP you from moving ahead, hinder your growth and put boundaries there so that you think you are unable to do a thing. When the victim becomes fully aware of their strength over the enemy [for he has been defeated] then they become the victor!
Don’t let him destroy those divine things that God has for you!
THE DEVIL IS JUST A BULLY!
He keeps pushing, shoving and making you fall. He comes right in your face to challenge your VERY faith in God! He challenges your character and your identity! And you do NOT have to accept him pushing you around! YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE THROUGH and IN CHRIST!!!
You know EXACTLY what to do in order to win!
