Beloved.. The same area that the enemy has attacked us... It's the very same area that God has anointed to bless us and to use us as the channel of blessings to others.
Beloved... We are not being attacked by the enemy because we are victims, but because we are the enemy's greatest Threat... But with God... We are Victorious, More than Conquerors, Overcomers...
Hmmm... Have you ever wondered, why did the devil hated and feared the birth of Baby Moses and Baby Jesus?
"When Pharaoh commanded all his people, “Every son that is born to the Hebrews you shall cast into the Nile, but you shall let every daughter live.”
-- Exodus 1:22
Moses was divinely chosen, predestined as a Deliverer for God's people, the Israelites, from the bondage of slavery by the Egyptians.
"When Herod saw that he had been outwitted by the Magi, he was filled with rage. Sending orders, he put to death all the boys in Bethlehem and its vicinity who were two years old and under, according to the time he had learned from the Magi." -- Matthew 2:16
Jesus, Son of God, Our Deliverer, Savior of the World, Rock of Our Salvation, Author and Perfecter of Our Faith... Redeemer of all God's children. He was sent from Heaven to earth to sacrificially die in our place... Setting us free from the bondage of Satan, sin, shame, sorrows, sickness... Reconciling us to God, Our Heavenly Father.
Satan schemed and plotted his strategies, through Pharoah and Herod, to kill, steal and destroy these two baby boys and their destiny...But GOD... He protected, preserved and manifested the prophecy!!
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, contending only with physical opponents, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly supernatural places.
Beloved... Let us pray, praise and proclaim our deliverance, blessings and overwhelming victory, in Jesus mighty name.... For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience and Lordship of Christ.
I declare, I know who My God is and I know whom, He says I am: "I'm His masterpiece! I'm handpicked by my Heavenly Father to be used greatly by Him. I'm unconditionally and steadfastly loved! Highly Favored... Divinely Protected... I'm bold, beautiful, brave... fearfully and wonderfully made! I'm a magnificent Child of the King, with extreme value, worth and significance... I'm Supernaturally Chosen, Appointed and Anointed by God... Blessed, Gifted, Equipped, Empowered, Elevated... I'm anointed like Solomon for Kingdom strategies, spiritual insights, Wisdom and Wealth! I'm anointed like Esther with Honor and Grace... I'm created for such a time as this!"
"In God Almighty, whose Word I praise, In God, I have put my trust; I shall not be afraid. What can mere man do to me? All day long they distort my words; All their thoughts are against me for evil. They attack, they lurk, They watch my steps, as they have waited to take my life.… What then shall we say to all these things? If God is for us, who can be successful against us?
God of my Vindication... God of my Retribution... God of my Refuge and Strength... God of My Praise, Don’t Remain Silent…And let them know that this is Your hand; You, LORD, have done it. Let them curse, but You bless; When they arise, they shall be ashamed, But Your servant shall be glad. Let my accusers be clothed with dishonour, and let them cover themselves with their own shame as with a robe.…Even my closest friends, the ones I broke bread with, have risen their heels against me. For I have heard the slander of many, terror is on every side; while they took counsel together against me, they schemed to take away my life.
Today, I chose to forgive them. As I continue to seek and praise my God... Perhaps the LORD will look on my affliction and return good to me instead of their cursing this day. Instead of shame and dishonor, I will enjoy a double share of honor. I will possess a double portion of prosperity in my land, and everlasting joy will be mine. Behold, The LORD's servants will shout joyfully with a glad heart; But my accusers, enemies and opposers will cry out with a heavy heart, and they will wail with a broken spirit.
O Lord, You build a hedge of protection around me, my children, household, family, business/career, finances, ministry, the work of our hands, and destiny. No weapon formed against us shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against us in judgment, I shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and our righteousness is from God Almighty. For those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty. This I declare about The LORD, My God: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; He is my God, and I trust him. For he will rescue us from every trap and protect us from the deadly disease. He will cover us with His feathers. He will shelter us with His wings. His faithful promises are armour and protection. Since we have made the Lord our refuge, The Most High our Shelter, therefore no evil will conquer us; no plague will come near our home. For He will order His angels to protect us wherever we go.
And we know with great confidence that God, who is deeply concerned about us, causes all things to work together, as a plan, for good for those who love God, to those who are called according to His plan and purpose. For the Lord God is a sun and shield; The Lord bestows grace and favor and honor; No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly.
As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good in order to bring about this present outcome, that many people would be kept alive, as they are this day. Surely, LORD, You bless the righteous; You surround us with your favor as with a shield!
Surely goodness and mercy and unfailing love shall follow us all the days of our life, and we shall dwell forever, throughout all our days, in the house and in the presence of the Lord. In Jesus mighty name, I pray AMEN!!"
