2 Corinthians 2:11
There is a satanic attack against the Christian in these last days. Satan is doing everything he can to get you to backslide, everything he can to keep you from going forward. In fact, there are many Christians that Satan has contained and has kept ineffective and powerless in these last days. He knows that his time is almost up, so he is doing everything he can to keep you from making an impact against his kingdom.
I’m tired of seeing church after church and Christian after Christian living bound by the enemy. I’m tired of the world thinking that the church is powerless, and God’s people are feeble minded. There are too many believers that are being held captive, too many believers that the enemy is running all over, too many families that are about to be destroyed.
Some of you want to move forward, some of you are trying to get out of the problems you’re in, some of you want a closer relationship with God. But it seems like every time you take one step forward, the enemy is doing everything he can to make you take two steps back.
If that’s the condition you’re in, our new series EXPOSING THE ENEMY is designed to expose the enemy and give away his game plan. I want you to know straight up that God has more than enough power and strength to deliver you out of the snare of the enemy and your pit of despair. There’s not a problem or an obstacle that God can’t move for you. The devil can’t build a big enough wall to keep God from coming on the scene.
2 Corinthians 2:11 (NKJV) 11 lest Satan should take advantage of us; for we are not ignorant of his devices. The Greek word here for devices is noema, which means thoughts, purposes or designs. The enemy has plans and thoughts of his own for us; but we know in Jeremiah 29:11 that God reveals to us what His plans and thoughts for us are. His plan is to prosper you, not harm you and to give you a hope and a future.
Please understand that the devil will try take advantage of every failure of ours, using it to get into our life and try to cause our downfall.
You don’t have to be bound anymore. You can be set free. Some of you have been bound for so long, you’ve become used to the chains and the weights that the word says “so easily besets us.” You can become so accustomed to the dark that it begins to get easier to see. Some of you need to let God do a work in your life, today and now. Quit holding back on God or you’ll find yourself missing out.
