The Great Bluff

The Great Bluff…

I know a Jewish believer who has a congregation that went through opposition. His congregation was firebombed and the sanctuary was destroyed.

In the days after, they decided to hold their services in the bombed out room, with dancing, joy, praise, and thanksgiving.

He knew that his enemies, and more importantly, the enemy, was trying to intimidate him. Instead he took it as an encouragement that he had something to do that must have been greatly important or the enemy wouldn’t have bothered.

It turned out that more people came to the Lord after that bombing than before. God blessed His ministry, and even gave him favor with the government. The enemy will stop you if you let him.

If the enemy’s trying to intimidate and stop you, it means you’re doing something important. So be encouraged!

Praise God, give thanks, and rejoice all the more! Press on, because you must be doing something right. Keep doing it, because the enemy can never stop you from doing God’s will, unless you stop yourself.

When the wicked advance against me
to devour me, it is my enemies and my foes who will stumble and fall. Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear; though war break out against me,
even then I will be confident. One thing I ask from the Lord, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple. For in the day of trouble he will keep me safe in his dwelling; he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent and set me high upon a rock. Then my head will be exalted above the enemies who surround me; at his sacred tent I will sacrifice with shouts of joy; I will sing and make music to the Lord. Psalm 27:2-6

Today, don’t allow the enemy to intimidate you from doing God’s will. Go against all fear and all the works of the devil.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
