II Chronicles 16:9
A word from the Lord: I know your heart and hear your cries today. The earth is crying out to Me. I am the great I Am. Stand strong, be strong, conquer and overcome. Evil is piercing, and hurtful, but My light shines through My people. Shine I say unto you shine. No compromise, no weakness, no undeserved compassion on the enemy. The enemy is out to kill you and all My people. The time is now for war and war it will be. War is ugly and wearisome. Draw your strength from Me and My Word. You are to fight the spiritual battle for your family. You are chosen to go through as light. You are the one I am using now for this. Pray, pray, pray, study, study, study, show yourself approved. Be ready for battle at all times. Rest is not for now. Now is the time for war; war to win My lost.
My thoughts: We have to see evil for what it is. The deceiver covers it and makes it very appealing. Our families can get sucked into beliefs that are lies straight from Satan and Satan can make lies shine very bright and look like truth. The Lord tells us to shine and shine bright, because His light cannot be dulled or covered by anything the enemy has, does or says.
We are in a war and we are to be warriors for Christ. Peace and joy are wonderful and we need them, but we forget the war. War rages on with us or without us. Satan will attack your home, family, job and anything else he can get away with. I am sure as you read this the Holy Spirit is bringing to your mind something that your family has gone through because of the god of this world was busy distorting and twisting truth for his cause. Our families are ministries. Ministry begins in our homes. We must pray, pray, pray for them.
We must know God’s Word to attack the enemy. Satan knows God’s Word, that is why he can quote it and used scriptures to tempt Jesus in the wilderness, and that is why he can take the truth, and put a little different twist to it, and get people to believe a lie. Satan has had a lot of practice up to this point. Generation after generation, he has tried to deceive. He is pretty good by now, and we have to be grounded in the Lord to see the real truth. Truth is truth, it cannot be changed because we may believe different. Seek the truth today and see your foundation become strong and unshakable.
Ask the Holy Spirit to reveal truth to you even if it is painful to realize you have been deceived by "the deceiver" and walking in a lie.
