It Is Finished! 5/11/16
Ephesians 6:12 (KJV)
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Psalm 120:7 (KJV)
7 I am for peace: but when I speak, they are for war.
1 Timothy 2:1-2 (KJV)
1 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;
2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.
It is a BEAUTIFUL spring day here in Georgia.
The sun is shining brightly, a cool breeze blows refreshingly through my screen porch as I happily watch the red birds feed at the bird feeder my mother-in-law erected.
I can safely exclaim with the Apostle Paul:
Philippians 4:18 (KJV)
18 But I have all, and abound: I am full, having received of Epaphroditus the things which were sent from you, an odour of a sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable, wellpleasing to God.
BUT, though all "seems" well in the natural world I live in PRESENTLY, I too well KNOW that what I "see" is not the whole picture!
2 Corinthians 4:18 (KJV)
18 While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.
What WE cannot "see" is a WAR being waged in the SPIRIT!!!
GOD VERSUS sATAN, GOOD VERSUS EVIL!!
SPIRITUAL wickedness in HIGH PLACES!"
God desires that WE:
2 Corinthians 10:5 (KJV)
5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
For, if "THE EYES OF THE LORD ROAM TO AND FRO THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE EARTH, TO SHEW HIMSELF STRONG IN THE BEHALF OF THEM WHOSE HEART IS PERFECT TOWARD HIM,"
THEN, satan also is roaming "to and fro throughout the whole earth"-DEFEATED as we know he is!
2 Chronicles 16:9 (KJV)
9 For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him. Herein thou hast done foolishly: therefore from henceforth thou shalt have wars.
THANKFULLY/PRAISE THE LORD, "THE BATTLE IS THE LORD'S!!!"
1 Samuel 17:47 (KJV)
47 And all this assembly shall know that the LORD saveth not with sword and spear: for the battle is the LORD'S, and he will give you into our hands.
WE are "the SHEEP of his pasture!"
Psalm 100:3 (KJV)
3 Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
It is far easier to get caught up in the negatives of this life then BELIEVE the positives of God and God's Word.
OUR battle is in the mind and heart!
BELIEVE IN THE LORD YOUR GOD, SO SHALL YE BE ESTABLISHED, BELIEVE HIS PROPHETS, SO SHALL YE PROSPER!"
2 Chronicles 20:20 (KJV)
20 And they rose early in the morning, and went forth into the wilderness of Tekoa: and as they went forth, Jehoshaphat stood and said, Hear me, O Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem; Believe in the LORD your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper.
satan never grows weary-his attacks are endless.
But, OUR God:
Psalm 121:4 (KJV)
4 Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.
Beloved, whatever storm, trial, temptation and/or problem YOU face today-
TAKE HEART AND KNOW-
IT IS FINISHED AND JESUS IS LORD!!
AMEN AND AMEN!
GOD BLESS YOU!
