I am so excited! I love those moments when God hits you suddenly with a divine revelation. They are amazingly sweet but hard to come by if you are not still before Him.
Three days ago I received a devotional email about the Father of Lies (below). I read it and passed over it because it was something I have heard and written about a hundred times. Little did I know how greatly it would apply to my life just two days later.
Track with me. I’m standing in front of the mirror applying my eye shadow for work when goose bumps pop up on my arms and my hands begin to shake. What in the world? I could hear God speaking to my heart and as He spoke, a great peace fell over me.
I believe that God is good! I believe that He has gone before me and before my children. I firmly believe that He has a plan that I do no not understand but I WILL choose to have faith in it because He has proven that He is good and that He IS faithful.
For those who are feeling confused by the events that are transpiring, DON’T! I promise you, that God is up to something incredible and we are going to get to be a part of it. He is not just testing my faith but those who have supported and stood behind me. Any feelings of doubt or confusion are NOT from God. They are the enemy whispering lies into our ears in order to make us doubt our Mighty God!
Protect your thoughts! Read over Philippians 4:8-9. Read it again and again. Think of truth and what we have seen transpire up to this point. God will not be mocked and He does not tolerate disobedience of His word. I believe that vengeance is His and His alone and He will set all things right according to HIS time and HIS will. God’s got this! He has won the victory! Let’s praise Him for what He is doing !!
Father of Lies
And stop you in your tracks,
So keep on guard and trust God’s Word,
Resist his strong attacks. —Branon
