Trust in our God

Beloved watchmen, when I originally posted this, I was coming out of a spiritual showdown.  After rereading it, I felt I needed to add a few things and update it, rather than posting new.  Stay in the fight; the battle is already completely won!

Proverbs 3:5-7 (NLT) Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek His will in all you do, and He will show you which path to take. Don’t be impressed with your own wisdom. Instead, fear the Lord and turn away from evil.

Beloved Watchmen, all Scripture serve as sources of wisdom, authority, and power to those who choose to believe, to those who set our hearts to apply our God’s Truth in every situation, in every circumstance.

When confronting spiritual influences and spiritual beings who seek to cause us to waiver and doubt our God’s Truth, we must hold this Scripture dear. I often find myself in situations that have specific precedents narrated in the Bible; it is our God’s grace at work assisting us, so that we know how to move around in the spirit legally. He IS The Only True and Righteous Judge; we must trust Him. 

I have cast out devils, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. I have had them speak to me, to attempt to intimidate me, to attempt to confuse me. I am well aware the ONLY reason I have come out victor, is Christ in me The Hope of Glory and the operation of our Holy Spirit grace, power, and authority.   We must stay in contact and communication with our God; we can trust Him!

When demons AND flesh are confronted, usurped, or exposed it is their very nature to do whatever they can to get us off their track. They will say and do things to get our minds off the Truth of our God’s Word; to get us to open even the smallest door of fear, doubt, or unbelief, as it pertains to our God.  Do not be intimidated; trust our God!

The goal is to get us into our own limited understanding, to get us into the flesh (which satan can manipulate and control), to get us out of our safe place in Jesus The Christ. Remember, we are only able to wield the authority and power of our God, in and through HIS appointed Lord of all. We are deputized by our new birth in Christ, and anointed with His same anointing to do good, and heal all of the oppression of satan. Trust in our God!

Matthew 28:18-20 and so many other Scripture bare witness to our inheritance of kingship, lordship, and royal priesthood because of our faith in Jesus The Christ. We are authorized as our God’s authorization in the earth to separate humanity from the evil works of satan.  We can do all things through our Christ; we must trust our God!

Watchmen, it is difficult sometimes when we fast, pray, and decree our God’s Word over a life, only to watch it continue in a path contrary to our God’s best. Let me warn you that there WILL be prodigal sons who (no matter how much we fast and pray) will insist in moving in their own ways, in ways contrary to our God.  We must trust our God!

I say to you, remain faithful to your call. Continue to fast and pray, with thanksgiving and praise, knowing that our all things work together for good God is keeping record and navigating the way of a heart that truly wants His help and guidance.  Our God has made us promises that seem impossible to manifest; however, we must trust that our God, our Heavenly Father knows best and it is impossible for His Word, His promises to return to Him void and empty, if we choose to believe and live a life that confirms that we do.

Remember watchmen, for sake of the salvation of a soul, our Loving God will allow the stubborn, rebellious, know it all, human will (flesh) to be given over its desires, (to its covenants with foolishness and evil) so suffering serves to bring the wayward child home to Him. He has promised us our whole house; we cannot dictate the manner in which some will be saved, we can only trust our God that they will. We must make peace in our hearts, knowing that even in death, we win!

Isaiah 57:1 (TLB) The good men perish; the godly die before their time, and no one seems to care or wonder why. No one seems to realize that God is taking them away from evil days ahead.

I write this beloved watchmen to say, “Be encouraged, knowing that your labor of love is not in vain. Once you have done His will, stand strong in Him, His wisdom, authority, and power. Our God can and should be trusted. Let us trust Him. In Jesus The Christ name!”

“Even so! Come Lord Jesus!
