I’m going to start off with this. It is time out for settling for satans lies.
Don’t give life to satan’s lies.
Picture this, alie from satan spoken looming around you waiting for you blood bought believer to do one of two things: resist and watch his deceptive efforts disintegrate or trade your peace. Becoming a difibulator charging his lies giving life to his deception as it steals, kills, and destroys.
The word God says Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
James 4:7 ESV
Are you resisting or embracing?
Let’s dig deeper
I was afforded the opportunity to share my testimony at an awesome church in Indiana last month and there I had to live this very message out.
I was there to share my testimony and to offer my 3 books for sell after church. Ladies let me tell you that from the time I accepted this opportunity the enemy got busier and busier. I fell and hurt my knee right before we left , I missed our rental car pickup, and barely secured another rental. Since those things didn’t make me cancel the enemy turned up the heat and the shrink wrapping began. The discouragement tightened. The insecurity tightened, and my eyes were shifting from Christ to satans lies. Shame Tightened up. Wrestling not to let anymore shrink wrapping occur I sat noticeably shaking so much so the pastor asked my family to stand up with me when my time came to share.
After I spoke and gave God glory my husband took my hand and said sturnly and lovingly stop shrinking back! This is your testimony.
Let’s break it down futher.
You see ladies to be shrink wrapped the plastic around an object is heated to preserve the object.
In real life if we buy into the enemies lies the shrink wrap holds the lies in. As the heat increases the lies choke more life out of us. The more we buy into the lies the more movement is restricted until the shrink wrapped lies are too close to ignore so we become atrophied.
We all have a testimony and nothing can be used against us. We share to the glory of God . Don’t shrink back.
Here’s some scriptures to empower you to destroy your shrink wrap this week.
1 Cor 15:58
Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.
1 Corinthians 15:58 ESV
And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.
Galatians 6:9 ESV
Reach out to someone. Let them know you care.
Oh, and one more awesome scripture before I close is:
For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds.
2 Corinthians 10:4 ESV
Wage good warfare this week and as always remember to trust God cry repeat God bless you.
