Are you aware that you’re under a spiritual attack of some sort? It may not look like it’s a spiritual battleground at first glance—but make no mistake, it IS a spiritual battleground!
Is a neighbor causing trouble for someone in your family? Are things happening at work that just aren’t right? Have financial stresses come out of nowhere? Have you received a sudden, serious medical diagnosis? Or maybe it’s an unexpected hostility between two of your adult children . . .
If any of these things sound familiar to you, realize that the origin of most negative scenarios like these is the evil one. (Joh 10:10) The Good News is that Jesus, our Lord and Savior is our solution in each and every circumstance!
“For the mountains may be removed and the hills may shake, but My lovingkindness will not be removed from you, and My covenant of peace will not be shaken,” says the Lord who has compassion on you. (Isa 54:10 NASB)
God says that His lovingkindness hasn’t been removed from you nor has His covenant of peace with you been shaken. Hallelujah!
“If anyone fiercely assails you it will not be from Me. Whoever assails you will fall because of you.” (Isa 54:15 NASB)
This reassures us that evil attacks upon us, regardless of their nature, never come from God. But He guarantees us that the attack and attacker will fall and be absolutely defeated.
If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple YOU ARE. (1 Cor 3:17, emphasis added)
In this verse from the Bible, God says plainly that He will destroy the one who attacks His temple; we are His temple.
Even the captives of the mighty man will be taken away, and the prey of the tyrant will be rescued; for I will contend with the one who contends with you, and I will save your sons. (Isa 49:25 NASB, emphasis added)
Lastly, the Scripture above declares that God will oppose the one who dares to oppose YOU. All glory to God! Put your hope, faith, and trust in Jesus; and rest in His love and His mighty power.
