Commentary By: Gordon King
For the past few days I have been having much difficulty posting on this blog due to my computer freezing up and responding inordinately slow, it takes me at least 3 to 4 times longer to post. There seems to be no reason for this other than evil spirits attempting to stop me from performing the will of God!
It may not seem like such a big deal, however my time is valuable and I don’t have a lot of it during the week. Evil spirits will try to stop us from performing God’s will, they will get in our way, try to block us, and attempt to lead us in the wrong direction. And at times it is the little things which can alter the will of God in our lives.
With that being said I am determined to persevere and do what I do for the Lord! I will not cower to evil spirits, but will bind them in the name of Jesus Christ! I resist the devil and his ploys. I have the power given to me by God, the authority to put Satan and his demons in their place! And as believers in Jesus Christ all of us have that power.
We already have the victory over Satan, our Savior holds the keys to both Heaven and Hell!
Satan will attack us whenever and where ever he can, and say it isn’t so! I have been attacked in most areas of my life and Satan isn’t letting up! He has attacked me financially, physically, and emotionally, through my marriage, my children, and my work. Even now he continues his attacks in other areas of my life, but he will not prevail!
When Satan attacks me it only increases my faith in God, it gives me increased strength, courage, and perseverance. His ploys will not work against me because I am a child of God Almighty! I follow Jesus Christ the Savior of the world, the only God of the universe, the King of kings and Lord of lords!
Whatever comes against me, whomever attempts to stop me from performing the will of God will fail! It is to the glory of God that I will prevail, to the testimony of Jesus Christ, to His power, His might, and His magnificence.
As we see the evils in the world increasing we can also see it manifesting around us. Many if not most of us experience these evil spirits coming against us. They come in many shapes, sizes, and forms. Even Satan comes dressed as an angel of light!
What matters the most is how we respond to these attacks, what do we do and whom do we seek?
These attacks will challenge our faith, place doubts in our minds, and even perhaps lead us astray. We must remember just who we are, children of God! We must remember the promises of God and His word, seek the good Lord in all things, love God with all of our heart, and allow the Holy Spirit within to align with our spirit.
When we go through these trying times then we can increase our faith, gain new wisdom and understanding, and strengthen our relationship with God!
Although we don’t like it when we are tested, when we go through fiery trials and tribulations, these are the times which will make us more useful to God and His kingdom! We will be able to better help those in need, to comfort those who are going through similar situations, and encourage believers in Jesus Christ.
I thank God for allowing me to undergo the trials in my life, to bring me to my knees in repentance, to become much closer to Him! He has given me greater understanding, more wisdom and insight, and a heart intent on seeking and loving Him more and more each day.
Do not lose hope, do not lose faith, but know that God is with you in all things and through all things! It is His will for us all to be more like His Son Jesus Christ!
God bless my friends! Maranatha!
