How freeing it is to truly CAST ALL YOUR CARE onto the LORD. To be in that place of complete and total TRUST that whatever the obstacle stands before us, God has it already handled and we need only BE AT PEACE. This is easier said than done though, isn't it? Today's devotional reminds me of the Psalms and all the times David was up against insurmountable odds. In the natural it looked hopeless time and time again. However what I've learned from reading about David, and all the giants that I myself have been up against is this: GOD ALWAYS CAME THROUGH. He is faithful, and we can rest in the knowledge that although we may not be able to understand what's happening in the midst of the storm...He is still on the THRONE.
Originally posted on Already Not Yet: Sam Storms: The Apostle Peter tells us that “the passions of the flesh” are waging “war against” our “souls” (1 Peter 2:11). Don’t underestimate the significance of this daily battle for our souls. So, how are we to fight? With what weapons do we wage this war? Peter says… via... Continue Reading →
Can Christian’s be under attack from satan?
Yes, I have seen many Christian’s come under serious attack.
In fact, when you come under demonic attack take comfort, because it means that you must be doing something right. And that something is an obvious threat to satan’s kingdom, if it weren’t….he wouldn’t bother with you.
In Luke 22:31, 32 Jesus said, “Simon, listen to me! Satan has demanded the right to test each one of you, as a farmer does when he separates wheat from the husks. But I HAVE PRAYED FOR YOU, Simon, that your faith will not fail. And when you turn back to me, you MUST strengthen your brothers.”
So why would we think that if the apostle’s, who walked with Jesus, and gave up everything to follow Him, would come under attack, (so much so that Jesus Himself warned them, and prayed for them,)…

When you don't feel strong enough, smart enough, or capable of doing what's in front of you for lack of WHATEVER....ASK THIS QUESTION, "WHO IS YOUR DADDY?!?" ...because I promise you HE IS ENOUGH, He is ABLE, and there is truly NOTHING BEYOND HIS POWER, so proceed with THAT confidence. Not with who you are, or what you can do of your own power, but of WHO'S you are...and what He's able and willing to do for those who love Him. What ever the challenge, no matter how daunting, say these words out loud; "MY FATHER NEVER FAILS!"
I have become accustom to living in the Lord's presence, and hearing from Him through out each and every day, however there are times when He goes silent. At first I find it odd, then after a day or so I try to rationalize that maybe He has nothing to say today, but eventually I have to face the fact that there must be something that I'm doing or not doing that is causing an interference; a breakdown in our communication. Scripture tells us that HEARING IS EASY, right?!? Then why are there times when I can't hear Him?
Over the years I've come to find myself getting excited by the fact that each challenge seems more impossible than the next, because I know it's put me in the unique position of having a front row seat, to see first hand what He's going to do. I know He's going to come through in VICTORY....however, the exact way it will be accomplished often remains a mystery, until the moment it unfolds. So I just stand in AWE of my Father in Heaven, releasing and decreeing what I already know to be true! I can't imaging living any other way...
I urge you to continue to live expectant of the amazing future God has promised you, and to lean into a deeper relationship with Him as you walk through the challenges that you now face. Stand on the promises! "He who has promised is FAITHFUL."
A few years ago I found myself in a dark, seemingly hopeless chapter of life, with no logical reason to believe that God was going to come through with the miracle that I so desperately needed. I clearly didn’t deserve it. My circumstances were a direct result of my own disobedience and sin.
God is releasing a fresh anointing of the spiritual gifts over you...and a breakthrough in your finances. Demonic strategies are being scattered right now in the name of Jesus Christ, and He is raising a standard against them. He is saying, 'I am your Source, MOVE FORWARD IN FAITH...I don't see anything wrong with you. I want you NOW, as you are.'
