When we are attacked by the Enemy it's a GOOD Sign

By
Real Estate Agent with John L Scott Redmond

Hi to ALL

Today at Sunday School really hit home for me. I have noticed in the last couple of months that when I am being attacked by the enemy he has to work a lot harder then he use to. The things I let the enemy bother me with before seem so small. For my daily walk I have to remember that what the enemy is hitting me with now, will someday be one of those little things. It is actually a great thing this is happening. It just means I am irrigating him more and more and that I am having an affect on him. So what that the enemy"doesn't like me". The thing is,  the more he doesn't like me the more of a threat I become to his plans.

Today we were discussing the "face to face" intimacy we need to be sharing with the Lord. Oh how I long for those AWESOME times when I can just sit in stillness and not say anything. I feel the Spirit's presence so strong that it often makes me weep. Intimacy can be looked at as "Into Me, See". Now that's powerful!!

I heard this quote and what a great way to look at the Favor the Father shows us. "favor is like being dipped in honey" and the affection God gives us sticks to us.

Faith comes to us through hearing.

Knowledge produces illumination--Illumination produces revelation--revelation produces transformation--which produces manifestation. Favor is given to us to accomplish (Involves) a purpose.

to obtain Favor....gives us opportunity.

If we confess that FAVOR is in our life is becomes a Supernatural Charisma so others will notice. Ask and Decree it!! Favor gains opportunity for you and I.

Ask everyday for that "Face to Face" intimacy with our Father. In Genesis 32 verse 30, Jacob explains, "I have seen God face to face (paniym) and my life is preserved."

When we were having a moment to be in the Spirit before class was over I kept hearing "You are Strong because you have God's Strength". WOW!!!! The attacks can keep on comin'....I have the Lord's FAVOR and I confess this!!

Have a great week

May any doors the Lord has opened for us this week be walked through and conquered

Lani,

Thanks for sharing this with us. I tell people at church if you are not under attack you are not in the ballgame.

Thanks to both of you for responding. It is nice to get feedback!! Sometimes things get very frustrating but if I didn't have the Lord I would have NOTHING!! I moan and groan sometimes but its' funny....the closer I walk with God the quicker I get over it.

We are to see an improvement in how we handle things and an increasing resisitance to temptations. With most people Satan has no work to do - he already has them.

Lani I,m new to all this AR and this group but not to the Lord , it was great to see my favorite scrpture on the walking rain ad HEB.11:6.   I did enjoy all your comments, but I would because talking and sharing Jesus's love is what floats my boat, as a brother of mine says.  Hows the heat in Redmond?I had a brother, Jim Guthrie that lived there for years, he's in Hood River now, well God Bless You, I hope to share with you again,Thanks again, Tom Guthrie    ps I'm at Medford Or.  Coldwell Banker office
