The Master Strategist

God is a master strategist. He knows every move of the enemy, before the battle is set in array. He already has the victory. He knows where to place the kingpin. He knows were to put the watchman. He can see over the wall.

He has Bishops who have never bowed to Baal. He knows were to move the chariots of fire. And just when the devil thinks all hell is breaking loose and he commands his imps to fire on God’s property, it doesn’t work because no weapon formed against you shall be able to prosper!

The enemy wants your joy, so you can give up the fight. Tell that old serpent, The LORD rebuke thee. God is not through with me, in the name of Jesus.

Devil, you might have a pawn in the midst of the garden, but I know a man from Galilee: HE IS THE KING OF KINGS! And at His name, every knee shall bow. Every tongue shall confess it: HE IS LORD.

The battle is not mine. It’s the LORD’s.

Take a Praise Break!

There are so many things in life that can get you down and out. It’s important to remember the reason why we keep pressing on. When you feel like life is getting the better of your emotions, take some time to praise God for three things:

  1. For everything He has done in your life to nurture and sustain you;
  2. For everything He is doing in your life right now; and
  3. For everything He is going to do (keep expecting God to show up).

Take a praise break! Clap your hands. Stomp your feet. Shout, “Hallelujah! The Lord’s been good to me!”
