Psalm 120:1-2 says:
"I call on the Lord in my distress, and he answers me. Save me O
Lord, from lying lips and from deceitful tongues."
Are you being attacked by someone? Has the devil been trying to destroy you?
This happens a lot in the lives of Christians. They are attacked daily by someone or something. We as Christians know when we are being attacked. It is from the devil, and his plan is to try to destroy Christians and also people who are not Christians. The good and awesome news is the Lord will expose those who are wicked and are trying to destroy you. Hebrews 4:12 says: "For the word of God is full of living power. It is sharper than the sharpest knife, cutting deep into our innermost thoughts and desires. It exposes us for what we really are."
Psalm 119:78 says: "Bring disgrace upon the arrogant people who lied about me; meanwhile, I will concentrate on your commandments."
God is the answer to our victory, and God's word is the answer to win our victory. All we have to do is press forward to what we know is right, and what we know the Lord wants us to do, and Jesus will meet us in our needs.
What are some of the things that you are in need of? I know that my husband and I are in need of something that is totally out of our hands, and the only way for us to win our victory over it is by claiming God's word over it and by praying daily and believing that God's will shall be done.
Sometimes Christians are attacked by someone, and we get so angry that it leaves bitterness in us; and that is an opportunity for the devil to destroy that Christian. We have to be careful when we are being attacked by someone, because naturally we will become angry when we are being attacked, and it can cost us badly. But we have to make sure we are angry at the right thing, and that's the devil--not the person, but the devil. When we are angry at the person, that is when bitterness builds up in us and can destroy us. But, when we are angry instead at what has a hold on the person, that is a "good" angry.
We also as Christians have to remember when we are in God's will Jesus well not let us lose our battles if we let him have our problems. What is your battle? Are you battling with cancer or with some kind of illness; are you battling with paying your bills each month, or are you battling with something that the devil is trying to take away from you that the Lord gave you? How you win victory over your battles is by finding something about it from God in his Word, the Bible, and claiming it in Jesus' name. Then it's yours; consider it done! But, we have to remember that often God might have something better for us. For example, if you are sick and you find out your illness is not curable, then you would go to Jesus, who is the healer of all sickness and can heal any kind of sickness that no man can treat. But, you pray and pray and your body keeps getting sicker, and finally the Lord takes you. It was not that your prayer was not answered; it was the Lord had something better for you, and that is to meet him face to face in Heaven. What would you rather have, your life here or be face to face with Jesus in Heaven?
When you are being attacked by someone, remember God will expose that person for who they are. Jesus will not let anything harm his children. The devil is out to destroy God's children, especially the ones who hold a big calling on their lives.
But, praise God, as long as we serve our Saviour Jesus Christ and stay in his Word and in prayer daily, the devil cannot harm us. God's word is powerful, and God does answer prayers.
The wicked will be exposed, and you will be restored with blessing. Psalm 119:71 says: "The suffering you sent was good for me, for it taught me to pay attention to your principles." (God's word)
Everything we go through in life, every battle, every struggle, Jesus will only use it to teach us and to make us stronger then we were before. Jesus will never allow it to destroy us, because he is a God of love and mercy.
Psalm 119:153 says: "Look upon my suffering and deliver me, for I have not forgotten your laws."
As long as you don't forget God's laws, He will not forget you, and he will deliver you out of the hands of the wicked, so all you have to do is praise God because you are delivered from the hands of the wicked!
Pray and claim the whole chapter of Psalm 35 over the situation that you are in. Pray that God will enact Psalm 35 on the person who is trying to destroy you or take away from you. It's time for you to win your victory and to win what the devil is trying to take away from you--or to win back what the devil has taken away from you. Don't sit back any more and do nothing; get out your Bible and read it and study it and claim God's word over your situation. Be encouraged by God's word daily, and you will see things change in your life that you have never seen before.
Jesus loves you and wants you to have victory over your trials, but the only way to victory is through Jesus!
God Bless you, and may God bring you out of your troubles and shower you with his blessings.....
