“Lord, how they have increased who trouble me! Many are they who rise up against me. Many are they who say of me, “There is no help for him in God.” .
But You, O Lord, are a SHIELD for me, MY GLORY and THE ONE WHO LIFTS MY HEAD.” Psalm 3:1-3
“GOD IS [already] beginning to arise, and His enemies to scatter….” Psalm 68:1
God is already beginning to arise in your life….can’t you feel the intense pressure to run from Him? To run to other vices, other ways to cope and be comforted….this is a sign. He is showing you how to interpret the signs….resist the urge to run FROM HIM and do exactly what you feel like NOT doing…..run TO HIM.
He is arising; He is disorganizing the organized chaos of your life and releasing His order. You can trust Him. The enemy has been stirred by His scattering, just like a hornet’s nest interrupted. That’s why everything in your life seems crazy. But know the truth today, that you are the blessing, you are His workmanship, you are alive, you are healed, you are free, you are helped, and you are loved!
Most of the time you are exactly the opposite of what you hear in your own ears and feel in your own heart. The enemy whispers lies. Lies that you have probably believed most of your life. Lies that are so familiar you might even think they are your own voice. Lies about what God thinks of you….lies that you have believed and that have embittered parts of your heart towards God. Lies that drive you away from Him instead of towards Him.
Today is the day of truth. Today, when you hear the voices that you are worthless, hopeless, helpless, pitiful, doomed, unloved, rejected, abandoned, and so on, I want you to learn to interpret differently….by His Spirit. Instead of lowering your head and agreeing with the voices I want you to lift your head and agree with them.
Because you know that WITHOUT Jesus, you are exactly those things, BUT WITH Him you are exactly the opposite!!!!
Resist the implication of the familiar voices and run to the arms of the one who lifts your head, not makes it lower. Run to the one who has declared life over you, the one who has resurrected you by His blood, who arises in victory over you and scatters all of your enemies! Run to the one who Lifts your head, not Lowers it. Let Him show you exactly what He thinks of you through His Word. Let Him show you how to interpret His voice. Let Him show you how to trust Him. Let Him show you how much He loves you….
