19 So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood , the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him. KJV
1) It is not IF the enemy comes but WHEN the enemy comes.
2) The enemy is no match for God. God is always GLORIOUSLY VICTORIOUS!
3) We don’t fight the battle, the Spirit of the Lord fights the battle.
Are we DEAD enough in our SINFUL NATURE to allow HIM to shine through us GLORIOUSLY and VICTORIOUSLY in whatever is going on in our lives and whatever the enemy throws at us?
Lord, forgive me when I am tricked or deceived into giving you less glory that you deserve. Lord, forgive me when self rises up within me and self is glorified above YOU. Lord, help me to walk in the Spirit so I can clearly see what the enemy is up to. Lord, help me to daily die to self, help me to keep the cross at the centre of my being and help me to guard my heart and live completely and humbly for your glory, in Jesus Name, AMEN
