Bible Strong-Don’t Give Up, November 2019

 “If the Enemy is attacking you, it’s because God is about to use you. If the Enemy is attacking your life, it’s because God is working in you. If the Enemy is attacking your weakness, it’s because you’re about to display God’s strength”― Samuel Rodriguez

The enemy Satan wants to get you away from God. He wants you doubting God’s love, grace, mercy and protection. That’s why he attacks Christians. He doesn’t want us telling others about Jesus or sharing His Word. He sure doesn’t want us praising and worshiping our God. Satan wants that for himself. If you are being attacked, you must be on the right path with the Lord.

Satan wants your mind, peace, attitude and especially your faith. He is fighting you over things that can’t be seen. The Lord will use what is meant for your harm, for your good. Christians have the power to send Satan and his demons, running.

James 4:7 Therefore, submit to God, resist the devil and he will flee from you.

Don’t skim over the first part of this scripture. You must submit or surrender to God to get His help. Surrender your body, mind and all of your life to God the Father. We must walk in His ways and obey His commandments. If we aren’t doing these things we can’t expect God’s full protection, power and deliverance in our lives. Don’t give up, surrender.

The scripture below tells us how God will be in the midst of our camp/lives and will deliver you from your enemies, only if your camp/life is holy. If it isn’t He will turn away.

Deuteronomy 23:14 For the Lord your God moves about in your camp to protect you and to deliver your enemies to you. Your camp must be holy, so that he will not see among you anything indecent and turn away from you.

There is no enemy so big or wicked/evil that can defeat you, when you are living under God’s protection.

2 Timothy 4:18 The Lord will deliver me from every evil work and preserve me for his heavenly kingdom.

We must give our all to God. When we do this is what we get in return: God’s protection, strength, boldness and courage, patience and endurance to get us through the attack/trial, wisdom on what to say and do and His favor will be on us.

There is absolutely nothing our God cannot defeat if it is His will to do so. He is a powerful awesome mighty great God. He can totally defeat and overcome every enemy attack against us. He is a great warrior.

Isaiah 54:17 No weapon formed against you shall prosper and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and this is their vindication from me declares the Lord.

Psalm 44:5 Through you we push back our enemies; through your name we trample our foes.

Trust in the Lord and do not give up. We have a mighty mighty mighty Great God who is more than able to take care of you and all your needs. Surrender yourself and your situation to God and follow the leading of the Holy Spirit.

Isaiah 59:19 MSG God looked and saw evil looming on the horizon— so much evil and no sign of Justice. He couldn’t believe what he saw: not a soul around to correct this awful situation. So he did it himself, took on the work of Salvation, fueled by his own Righteousness. He dressed in Righteousness, put it on like a suit of armor, with Salvation on his head like a helmet, Put on Judgment like an overcoat, and threw a cloak of Passion across his shoulders. He’ll make everyone pay for what they’ve done: fury for his foes, just deserts for his enemies. Even the far-off islands will get paid off in full. In the west they’ll fear the name of God, in the east they’ll fear the glory of God, for he’ll arrive like a river in flood stage, whipped to a torrent by the wind of God.

Below are some very powerful verses showing you that our God will be a man of war if He needs to be. When God moves into battle to protect you He shows us just how awesome and powerful He is. Never give up. When you can’t make it, the Lord surely can and will. Lean on Him.

Exodus 15:3, 6 The Lord is a warrior, the Lord is his name. Your right hand Lord was majestic in power, Your right hand Lord shattered the enemy.

Isaiah 42:13 The Lord will march out like a champion, like a warrior he will stir up his zeal; with a shout he will raise the battle cry and will triumph over his enemies.

Isaiah 52:12 But you will not leave in haste or go in flight; for the Lord will go before you, the God of Israel will be your rear guard.

Deuteronomy 9:3 But be assured today that the Lord your God is the one who goes across ahead of you like a devouring fire. He will destroy them; he will subdue them before you. And you will drive them out and annihilate them quickly, as the Lord has promised you.

Deuteronomy 33:27 The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms. He will drive out your enemies before you, saying, Destroy them!

Jeremiah 1:8 Do not be afraid of them says the Lord, for I am with you and will rescue you, declares the Lord.

1 Samuel 2:9 He will guard the feet of his faithful servants, but the wicked will be silenced in the place of darkness. It is not by strength that one prevails.

Isaiah 41:11 All who rage against you will surely be ashamed and disgraced; those who oppose you will be as nothing and perish.

Isaiah 59:19 When enemies come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord will put them to flight.

Isaiah 43:2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.

God bless. Heal the brokenhearted, bind up all their wounds.
