“Yes, and the Lord will deliver me from every evil attack and will bring me safely into his heavenly Kingdom. All glory to God forever and ever! Amen.” 2 Timothy 4:18 NLT
Whenever “evil” attacks–in whatever form it takes–we need to know with assurance, that The Lord will deliver us and we do this by saying what The Word says. “No weapon formed against us shall prosper” or come to any good.
When we see the works of the enemy, we should not be afraid, but confident in knowing, “we are more than conquerors” and will always be victorious.”
When sickness and disease attack our bodies, we should not cringe, but know, “by His stripes we are healed” and then do everything we can to make sure it happens. “Faith without works accomplishes nothing.”
When our finances are under attack, we need to know that, “the cattle on a thousand hills are His and the fulness thereof,” and whatever He has is ours because we are His children.
When we find ourselves being persecuted for our faith in Him, we need to remember, “with God going before us, He is more than the world against us” and we have been empowered through Holy Spirit to keep the enemy in his place.
When problems arise in our marriages and families, we need to remember that, “family is God’s idea” and Satan hates Him for it and will do anything he can to create rifts in the family.
When our faith, is based upon the solid foundation of The Word and we know how to empower our lives with The Word, nothing the enemy does shall have any lasting effect and we will come through every trial, refined, better than before because every time we exercise our faith with action, we are muscling up–getting ready for the next attack.
So, don’t cringe or marvel at the enemy’s attacks. Think of his attacks as misfired darts that were never strong enough for an impact upon anything and laugh in his face, every time he draws his bow. We have been “watered with The Word” and it, as our shield, is more than enough to quench any of his fiery darts. Just know–He delivers–the same today as He did–many years ago. Hallelujah for Deliverance!
