There is a darkness in our world. It comes from Satan. You can feel the attacks against you, one by one. There is a spiritual battle raging around you. Our battle is not against flesh, and blood, but against a spiritual enemy who opposes us.

Who can I warn, says the Lord, who will listen when I speak? Their ears are closed, and they cannot hear. They don’t want to listen at all.

Among my people are wicked men, who lie in wait for victims, they set traps to catch people unaware. Their homes are filled with evil plots, there is no limit to their wicked deeds.

Let those with ears hear. Satan, and his demons are alive, and they are waging war on you. They’re going to, and fro in the earth, walking up, and down in it. The enemy swoops down like an eagle spreading his wings. You will hear the blast of enemies’ trumpets, and the roar of their battle cries.

They are coming in battle formation, coming to destroy you. The archers have put on their armor, and have drawn their bows. They will come from every direction to rise up against you, in your day of trouble. Our enemy rushes down on us like storm clouds. His chariots are like whirlwinds. His horses are swifter than eagles. The enemy is coming, raising a battle cry.

Not in my strength, but the Lord’s, I will draw the battle lines, and face my enemy, with full determination. Sharpen your arrows, lift up the shield of God, and raise God’s battle flag. Although our enemies surround us, our God surrounds our enemies. Though they will come at us one way, they will flee from us 7 ways.

God will raise His fist against the enemy, and knock them down. When He is finished, Satan will be nothing but burnt rubble. The Lord will bring the enemy down, like lambs to a slaughter. No weapon formed against me shall prosper. He will repay His enemies for their evil deeds. His fury will fall on His foes. He will pay them back, even to the ends of the earth. For the Lord loves justice, and hates robbery, lies, greed, murder and all wrongdoing. Every evil thing that rises against me will be defeated in Jesus name.

The Lord stands beside me like a great warrior. Before Him my persecutors will stumble. God’s people will roar together, like lions. He will silence the enemies’ loud voices. Although waves of enemies pound against you, and the noise of battle rings around you, they will be captured, their weapons will break in their hands. For the Lord is a God who gives just punishment. He always repays in full. He is the Lord of Heavens Armies. Do not be afraid of them. They will fight you, but they will fail, for the Lord is with you, and He will take care of you. The Lord has spoken.
The Lord will go ahead of you, and the glory of the Lord will protect you from behind. God will rescue you. In His love, and mercy, He redeems you. He will lift you up, and carry you through your troubled times. He will restore the crushed spirits of the humble, and revive the courage of those, with repentant hearts.

He says, Come to me, with your ears wide open, listen, and you will find life.

Tell others of His unfailing love. Praise the Lord, for all He has done. Rejoice in His great goodness.

God Bless. Heal the broken-hearted, bind up all their wounds.
