1 Samuel 22:23
“Stay with me; do not be afraid: the man who is seeking your life is also seeking mine. You are safe with me.”
I think togetherness and unity are of the upmost importance in regard to protection from the common enemy; Satan. Having the same Savior is preached constantly. But what or from whom do we need to be saved from?
Maybe one who’s literally prowling about like a salivating empty-bellied lion looking to devour the lonely gazel straying from the herd. That’s the easiest target isn’t it? To risk plunging into a herd armed with hooves and antlers ready to jab and trample, or jump the unsuspecting stray?
Not such a tough choice is it?
- For our enemy is not physical but unseen; spiritual.
Cancer- just a name to scare us into believing God doesn’t love us or that he is finished with us.
Problems are not obstacles. They are opportunities.
You might say, ” Well, that’s easy for you to say you don’t have cancer. ”
No I don’t. But we have the same enemy. He’s just using different scare tactics. He knows that the big C doesn’t scare me as much as segregation in my family. There fore, he uses whatever weak spot in the fence and wiggles his bony figure in.
The only difference between where you are mentally, emotionally and spiritually and where God wants you to be is a decision.
You have to decide to stand firm on the promise that God is God. And he HAS won the victory. There is no battle to be fought. When Jesus died on the cross our fears, our worst nightmares, breathed there last as well. And when Jesus was placed in a borrowed tomb so were our fears.
When Jesus rose on the third day, our fears did not.
When I speak of the church, I don’t mean four walls and a roof. I speak of a people with supernatural power inside of them. Unity in the church singes ties of the enemies reach. For where two or more are gathered in Jesus name there the Spirit moves in a dynamic and strategic wave. An impenetrable force field takes root around Gods chosen people. Take hold.
