There seems to be more pressure on God’s people to quit today than at any other time I’ve known. But quitting is not what you want to do. Keep trusting God…your victory is on the way!
Delivering His people from problems is nothing new for God!
If fact, God’s promise to you and me is that we will win over Satan’s attacks. The psalmist wrote speaking of our victory, “Many are the afflictions of the righteous BUT the Lord delivers him out of them all” (Psalm 34:19).
So many of God’s people today seem to be at the end of their rope. I’ve heard numerous times lately, “Brother Jerry, I just don’t think I can go on.”
Satan desires to afflict people and God loves setting them free.
What do I mean by afflict? Before the Lord spoke to me about this and I began to study it, I always related affliction to sickness or disease. While it could include health issues, affliction means a state of pain, distress or grief, repeated adversity, calamity and loss.
As I began studying this a few weeks ago, the Lord instructed me to tell you, “Your repeated attacks are about to end!" No matter what you are going through right now, God is going to turn it around.
Satan afflicts, but God always delivers!
The Apostle Paul writes of the faithfulness and deliverance of God saying, “Persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me…what persecutions I endured, but out of them all the Lord delivered me” (2 Timothy 3:11).
Maybe you have experienced repeated attacks. It just seems like one thing after another. Maybe you’re wondering, “Lord, why is all this happening to me? Why is it that I seem to be under attack all the time?”
You must understand that these attacks are designed to steal the Word from your heart. You and I have a spiritual enemy that wants to kill, steal, and destroy (John 10:10). And the only way he can beat you is if you stop trusting in the Word of God. Jesus said “…where the Word is sown…Satan comes immediately and takes away the Word that was sown…affliction or persecution arises for the Word’s sake…” (Mark 4:15-17).
That’s what Satan is after…this is what it’s all about…the Word of God in your heart. If he can get you to let go of the Word, then you’re not a threat to him. Not only that, but it’s not likely you’ll ever experience God’s best for your life.
But if you will “resist steadfast in the faith” (1 Peter 5:9), then God will bring deliverance every time.
God is about to deliver you just like He has delivered His people before. In Exodus 3:7-8 the Lord said, “I have surely seen the affliction of my people… and have heard their cry by reason of their taskmaster, for I know their sorrows and I am come down to deliver them…”
God sees the affliction you have suffered. He sees the repeated adversity that you have faced. He knows the deep sorrow that they have caused. He has heard your cry and is going to deliver you out of them all!
By what process will God bring this deliverance? If you continue reading the account in Exodus 3:21, God says He will deliver us “…I will give this people favor.”
The Holy Spirit recently told me to tell God’s people to get ready for an unprecedented outpouring of His favor.
The favor of God will break the cycle of repeated attacks and set you on a path of victory. When God’s favor is poured out on your life, it starts changing the present course of things and gives you the advantage to be successful.
Look at how the book of Acts describes the deliverance that God brought to Joseph: “And the patriarchs, jealous of Joseph, sold him into Egypt; but God was with him and rescued him out of all his afflictions and gave him favor… (Acts 7:9-10, ESV).
Joseph, himself, later declared, “God has caused me to be fruitful in the land of my affliction” (Genesis 41:52). God said that’s where we’re headed. His favor is going to be poured out like never before and cause you to be blessed and overcome the attacks coming against you.
That’s why the devil has fought day and night trying to get you to give up. DON’T DO IT! Your situation is about to turn.
Don’t be deceived into giving up based upon what you can see. What you can’t see is what God is doing behind the scenes. He’s working on something! Paul said, “…eye hath not seen…the things which God hath prepared for them that love him” (1 Corinthians 2:9).
Your affliction, the repeated attacks are about to come to an end. The God who delivers is preparing a deliverance for you.
Don’t miss out on what God is about to do by not activating your faith to receive it.
Together, we are teaching people to trust God’s Word and how to live the life of victory Jesus paid for us to have.
If you will link your faith with mine and lay hold of what God has said, your repeated attacks are about to end and you will see God’s favor like never before during 2013. Let’s walk in faith and go after everything God has for us!
