We have an amazing purpose to live out that is given to us directly by YAH.
The thing is, the enemy is trying to do all he can to stop us.
As we pursue the dreams Yeshua has put in our hearts we must depend on
Him with our everything.
You may be discouraged and feeling overwhelmed because of the attacks but
take heart because the Lord is with you. Let me share a story with you that illustrates this
“And [that same] following night the Lord stood beside Paul and said,
Take courage, Paul, for as you have borne faithful witness concerning Me at Jerusalem,
so you must also bear witness at Rome.”
In this verse Yeshua promised Paul he would go to Rome and bear witness of Him.
But in the next verse we read something interesting,
“Now when daylight came, the Jews formed a plot and bound themselves by an oath and
under a curse neither to eat nor drink till they had done away with Paul.
There were more than forty [men of them], who formed this conspiracy [swearing together this
oath and curse].
Wow right?! Hours after the Lord spoke to Paul the enemy launched an attack against him!
In the natural Paul had no chance against this attack. There were forty Jews who were in on this
including the chief priests and elders.
But we need to look at what was really happening here.
The enemy thought he could stop the Lord’s purpose for Paul. he is so deceived that he thinks he
can stop YAH.
The Lord had promised Paul he would bear witness in Rome. Nothing would and could stop that
from happening. No matter the weapons the enemy used, they would all fail.
But the enemy thought he could challenge that!
The enemy’s plans for you will not succeed. Hold on to that truth with all you got.
The truth is this, he is a defeated foe and no plan against you can prosper because the Lord
is with you.
No matter the scheme, no matter the plan, no matter the weapon, they will all fail because the Lord
is protecting you and guiding you on your journey. His plan for your life will come to pass and that
is why I said you need to trust Him with everything you got. The enemy will try to deceive you into
believing he is winning but it’s a lie.
Trust the Lord’s leading, trust He is protecting you, trust He is in total control.
The journey we are on is long and there is plenty opportunity to get discouraged. But even when we
fall we must always remember that the Lord is with us. He is protecting us and directing our every step.
As I end this post I want you to see how powerful the Lord is. Look at the way he thwarted the enemy’s
‘Now the son of Paul’s sister heard of their ambush, so he went and entered the barracks and told Paul.”
The Lord used a young man! That’s all He needed. He didn’t break a sweat stopping the enemy’s plan.
The Lord has defeated the enemy and will continue doing so on our behalf with ease!
Don’t be discouraged. Keep trusting, keep praying…..
He will accomplish what He promised you.
Bless you friends!
