Imminent Victory

You may be in the battle of your life. You may have been pounded by wave after wave after wave for a long time. You have been praying for deliverance and feeling like you can’t take another wave, only to discover that the next wave looks like a tsunami. It appears like this killer wave is coming to shore for the final, fatal blow.

But today I bring you good news fresh from the heart of God. The weapon that the enemy has formed to destroy you will not destroy you. The wave may still come to shore, but if you stand in faith, you will not get wet, and God will provide a place of shelter. And after the storm, the treasures that have been hidden from you will be exposed and you will walk onto the battlefield and take the spoils. Although the enemy has a plan of defeat for you, if you stand in faith knowing that God is your deliverer and avenger, then the attack and the storm will not harm you, but instead will work for your benefit. If the enemy had known the victory that you are going to walk in, he would have reconsidered his attack.

You must always remember what God’s Word says about you and the victory that God has planned for you. When the enemy tells you that you’re not strong enough to survive the pressures of this world, God’s Word says that greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world (1 John 4:4).

When the enemy says that you won’t make it through the trial, God’s Word says that you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you (Philippians 4:13).

When the enemy says you are trapped and there is no way out, God’s Word says that He will always provide a way of escape for you (1 Corinthians 10:13).

When the enemy says that the opposition is too great, God’s Word said that no weapon formed against you will prosper (Isaiah 54:17).

When the enemy says victory is impossible, God’s Word says, this is the victory that has overcome the world – our faith (1 John 5:4).

The enemy is a liar, and his only weapon is his mouth. The weapon of his warfare only has power when you add belief to his words. The weapons of our warfare are not worldly, but are mighty in God for the tearing down of strongholds. The sword of the Spirit is the Word of God. When the enemy comes at you with lies in his mouth, then you speak to the enemy with the Word of God in your mouth. The Word of God will always overpower the words of the enemy.

Fear and faith are opposites. The Word of God contains faith, the words of the enemy contain fear. When the enemy speaks and shoots you with his bullets of fear, faith is your bullet proof vest that will keep the fear from penetrating into your body. Faith is the shield that is manufactured by hearing the Word of God and it is placed in the position of protection through your belief and confidence in what God says.

The Word says that if you believe, all things will be possible for you. Even when things look impossible, you must remember that Jesus said, “With God all things are possible.” When it looks like you are facing imminent defeat, remember this. God has a different plan. His plan is imminent victory.
