who can defeat omnipotence?
Every day, I am reminded how active and alive my old nature really is.
Yes, Satan uses all his methods to make every situation an opportunity to wage his army against the grace God has promised. That said, the Holy Spirit is on my side and always ready to guide me and assist me in resisting and destroying the schemes of that evil roaring lion.
It is clear to me that the grace within me will employ me to pray more – to long to stay close to God more. This then increases my faith, hope and love, which is critical in fighting these battles. It truly is necessary for me to put on the whole armor of God each day in order to effectively live for Christ and be close to Jesus.
The hardest part of life on earth is that I know that my two opposing natures will never cease to struggle against one other. The sinful nature is so entrenched in me, that it will never be fully driven out while I’m alive in this body.
But the good news is this: I have Jesus.
He is the Captain of my salvation!
He is always with me!
He assures me that I shall be a conqueror through Him!!!
Understanding that I have this assistance by God Himself – in Jesus Name, my new nature can win over Satan!!! YAY!
So, here’s my question… are you fighting adversity today?
Is Satan, the world, and the flesh against you?
Of course, the answer is “YES”, so listen... I have great and encouraging news!...
If you are in Christ, you are a new creature!!!
Old has passed away and you have and are becoming new.
He is changing you every day and preparing you to be in glory with Him!
So, don’t be discouraged or dismayed from the trials of this earth - - consider them all blessings! For they are molding you to be like Jesus!
Fight the enemy! FIGHT and resist His attacks! Resist your old nature! RESIST IN JESUS NAME!
Rest assured, God is with you; Jehovah Nissi is your banner, and Jehovah Raphi is the healer of your wounds. There is no need to fear anything because ultimately, you shall overcome, Believer! So believe!!! No matter how long the battle may last, I promise that the victory will be worth it when you step into His glorious presence and experience His promised reward.
When things get tough, ask yourself this question…. “Who can defeat Omnipotence?”
Praise God - We are on THE LORD'S SIDE! There is no One greater! There is no One mightier! There is no One like our Omnipotent Savior!!! Yippeeeee!
