This was a message I sent to a few of the WhatsApp groups that I am in this morning – Some of the emoji’s haven’t transferred over very well and some have been removed.
Psalm 91 is and remains my vaccine against every type of virus, no matter what it is named.
The psalm tells me that whilst I 👂🏾👀 (hear or see) what 📰🗞 (the news) of what is happening with unbelievers and whilst 1️⃣k at my my side or 🔟k (1,000 or 10,000) at my right hand may 💀⚰⚱ (perish), 💣⚡ (danger) will not come near me (vs. 7 & 8).
Whilst we are clearly in the world, we are not of it (John 17:16). Psalm 91 makes clear that because we as Spirit filled Christian “have made the Lord our refuge, the most High God our dwelling place, ⛔🚫 no evil will befall you, nor will any plague come near your tent” (vs. 9 & 10).
You can argue this all you like, but its Gods word you need to argue with 😊.
The bible says that No weapon formed against you shall prosper, it doesn’t say that there will be no weapons; just that ultimately they will not prosper. This is why we have to fight through and push on into God. Fight because we are in a battle. You want God’s blessings, He has already given them, we just have to take possession of them and that’s where the battle ensues:
12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this [present] darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) places.Ephesians 6:12 (AMP)
This is why we are given the 🕊🛡⚔ armour of God – to fight the good fight.
The Bible tells us clearly that it is by our faith that we see God move and where there is fear, God cannot function. So I say STOP! buying into fear and then getting discouraged and disappointed at God because He hasn’t worked things through your fear atmosphere. START pushing the fear to the side, argue with it if you have to, but keep taking the faith steps and use faith language instead of the fear propaganda that the enemy is trying to have you feel 🛍🛒 (buy into).
Chose instead, to believe Gods best for you; after all, God plans for His children are of good and not of evil (Jeremiah 29:11) and He is always working things out for the good, for those who love Him and are called according to His purpose (Romans 8:28).
Don’t get caught up in the Coronavirus or what ever other breed of hysteria follows it, but instead chose to stand in faith in God.
God bless you 🙏🏾👍🏾
So that was where my WhatsApp message ended, but not this post.
If your first 6 weeks of 2020 has been anything like mine, it has been a real test of character and a spiritual work out. It has felt like 2019 finished at close to 100% and so the enemy has started his 2020 at 200%.
Well if that’s been your journey thus far, I encourage you to stay in the Word of God daily and get the spiritual food that you will need to fight the good fight of faith and keep persevering in the spirit like this skateboarder did in the natural:
Stay strong and keep you head focused upwards towards the heavens. It is those that wait upon the Lord who will renew their strength (Isaiah 40:31) – Feed your spirit, get into the Word of God.
This video will hopefully encourage you to stay on track in the Word:
Have a blessed day and week ahead.
God bless you,
‘But test everything that is said. Hold on to what is good.’
1 Thessalonians 5:21 (New Living Translation)
