We are surrounded on all sides with messages of fear, calamity, and domination, but we must not lose hope. The word of the Lord is a message of hope in times of darkness. We are not fighting against flesh and blood but the enemy will deceive us to make us believe we need to fight each other. We cannot turn against each other, but instead, we must turn to the Lord in prayer. We must bring all of our anger, fear, and helplessness before His throne of mercy and grace and receive His perfect peace.
The enemy’s plan is to use fear and rage against you so that you will then turn it against others, but you must not. That is witchcraft and if we participate in witchcraft we are agreeing with Lucifer and his agenda in this world. We must trust in God’s plan for us, and for this world, for His ways are higher than ours and we cannot understand it.
No matter what happens we must trust in Him, that He is our Father who loves us and protects us. He has no plans for evil or calamity in our lives, but for hope and a future. That is what we must focus on and what we must believe in, no matter what we hear or see around us. Trust in a loving God who takes good care of His children and uses the plans of the enemy to bring something good into our lives.
The world we keep telling you the lies of the devil, but we must fight back by repeating the truth of who God says He is. He is good, strong, mighty to save, our protector, provider, a mighty fortress, and strong tower. He is the supreme authority over all, and He is in all and through all. There is no stopping our God. He is a mighty warrior and His name is Yahweh, Lord of heaven’s armies.
So today, fall on your knees in prayer for one thing: the will of the Lord will be accomplished. Father, I pray for your will to be done, here on earth as it is in heaven. We are a royal priesthood, and ambassadors of His grace called to be peacemakers through our prayers that waft up to heaven. The Lord be with you!
He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.”
For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler
and from the deadly pestilence.
He will cover you with his pinions,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness is a shield and buckler.
You will not fear the terror of the night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness,
nor the destruction that wastes at noonday.
A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.
You will only look with your eyes
and see the recompense of the wicked.
Because you have made the Lord your dwelling place—
the Most High, who is my refuge—
no evil shall be allowed to befall you,
no plague come near your tent.
For he will command his angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways.
On their hands they will bear you up,
lest you strike your foot against a stone.
You will tread on the lion and the adder;
the young lion and the serpent you will trample underfoot.
“Because he holds fast to me in love, I will deliver him;
I will protect him, because he knows my name.
When he calls to me, I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble;
I will rescue him and honor him.
With long life I will satisfy him
and show him my salvation.”
