"There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit." Romans 8:1
Yesterday the point of the devotional was to make you aware that the enemy/devil will try to intimidate you through your circumstances to stop sharing God's Word, to stop stepping out in faith and to stop believing what God says. The example I used was myself and how the devil would want to intimidate me to stop talking about the covenant of healing we have with the Lord because of pains in my own body.
This morning I want to make you aware that it isn't just in the area of sickness that he tries to intimidate. It is in every area. He starts by speaking words of condemnation which lead to intimidation, which cause us to keep our mouths shut.
You may be wrestling with your marriage, you may have a rebellious child, you may be having a hard time making ends meet, you may be having a bondage issue, or you may be having one of any number of situations going on in your life. If you are the devil will try to intimidate you so you will not encourage anyone in the Word, the power or the ability of the Lord to work and move in those areas--- after all, who are you to tell anyone else He is the answer when you are having the same troubles.
Be aware of his intimidations and don't let him steal the Word from you. Keep on telling others about God's power even if it isn't manifested in your life at the moment. Keep lifting up Jesus, even when you are "going through" something. Keep on, don't stop, don't be intimidated because like I also said yesterday-- God's Word is Truth.
You may have sickness in your body-- but He is still the Healer. You may have rebellious children-- but He is still the Keeper of your children. You may have lost your source of income-- but He is still the Provider. You may be vexed and in turmoil--- but He is still your Peace. You may be struggling with a bondage--- but He is still the Deliverer. Just because you are going through something, it doesn't change God so don't let intimidation stop you from telling it!
Have a great day. Don't be intimidated to keep your mouth shut!
