Know your strength in the Lord

I started reading over some old online journals from going as far back as 2005. It HIT me to notice day after day the repetitive pleas from me to the Lord. Mainly for strength and peace.
The Lord has chosen me to let you know TODAY to no longer give into the suggestions and distortions from the enemy that you are some weak, diminutive christian.
I recently heard a pastor say the ONLY way to cancel the lies, deceptions and other tactics of the enemy is know WHO you are in Christ. We are created in the image of the LORD. Exodus 15:3a writes The LORD is a warrior. And the truth is that we have that same warrior spirit inside all of us.
You can't live off what you see and how you feel you MUST believe the word of God concerning your strength. You are MORE than a conqueror and your storms have not been happening TO you but FOR you.
Remember that faith comes by hearing and hearing and hearing the word of God. So confess as needed:
It is written and we decree and declare :
Deuteronomy 3:16 Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you."
Joshua 1:7 Be strong and courageous. Be careful to obey all the law my servant Moses gave you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, that you may be successful wherever you go.
Judges 5:21b March on, my soul; be strong.
Psalm 27:14 Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.
1 Corinthians 16:13 (NLT) Be on guard. Stand firm in the faith. Be courageous. Be strong.
Ephesians 6:10 (NLT) A final word: Be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power.
1 John 2:14 (NLT) I have written to you who are God's children because you know the Father. I have written to you who are mature in the faith because you know Christ, who existed from the beginning. I have written to you who are young in the faith because you are strong.
God's word lives in your hearts, and you have won your battle with the evil one.
You need to be encouraged today in knowing that you are a million times stronger than you have ever imagined. It is time to put the Blood of Jesus Christ against that lying spirit of weakness that was trespassing in your life. In Jesus Name Be Blessed, Manie
