REAL vs. fake

JOHN 8:44 tells us that our enemy the devil is a liar. It says along with that there is NO truth in him. It is written in 1 Peter 5:8 Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. The truth is he is a fake. The scripture says he goes around like a lion but is not actually a lion. Yet Proverbs 28:1b writes that {we}the righteous are as bold as a lion. The thing is we believers spend to much time focusing on the enemy and his limited tactics instead of focusing on the GREATNESS on OUR lion of the tribe of Judah. The devil wants to deceive and manipulate people to meditate over and over in our minds thoughts of worry and then speak words fear and frustration. He wants us to magnify how bad the trials and tribulations so that we give up the good fight of faith and thus forfeit our promises because he is limited in what he can take from us and do to us. He whispers into your mind how terrible things are in your life. He offers to us depression and pity like they are after diner delicacies. He invites us to indulge in hopelessness and discouragement like it was a day at the spa. In this day the government seems only looking out for the big businesses while those in need to seem go unnoticed . He tries to taunt and mock us like the soldiers did to Jesus to save ourselves. Stop and look away from the temporary setback and roadblocks. Whatever and whoever is stressing, frustrating and in anyway has you all bent out of shape just stop NOW and announce weeping may remain for a night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.
God is for us and NO ONE can be against us. The Apostle Paul has said and it for our benefits as well that we become content in whatever the circumstances. It is written that we can do all things through Christ Jesus who strengthen us. God is our REFUGE. God is our STRONGTOWER. God is BIGGER, BETTER, GREATER than anything the enemy tries to send our way. The enemy is defeated foe. He is a counterfeit.
Today KNOW and DECLARE Life and Death is in the power of my tongue. The message bible says it this way Proverbs 18:21 Words kill, words give life; they're either fruit or poison- you choose.
Decree today that God no matter I will trust you. God no matter what I know that you are for ME. Decree today that Almighty God loves YOU. How much you trust and lean on Him is dependant on what you say today. We must decree and declare that Nothing is impossible with God. The time is OUT for sitting passively accepting and agreeing with every distortion, insinuation and suggestion from the enemy. Because that is about all he is able to do to us. He just loves to blow things out of proportion and make it seem worse than it. Then when he gets our mind flooded with thoughts of injustice and mouth spewing words of anger then he has us right where he wants us. It is only with our agreement can his plans infiltrate our lives. We have been given AUTHORITY over all the power of the enemy and the word says that nothing shall harm us.
Colossians 2:15 [God] disarmed the principalities and powers that were ranged against us and made a bold display and public example of them, in triumphing over them in Him and in it [the cross].
While waiting on your promises to be manifest don't let the enemy the fool you with the idea that what you see is in any indicative of what God has done for you. Hold tight to the truth that this too shall pass.
What you see is NOT what you've got. You should know that the testing of our faith produces perseverance. Confess that THIS is the day that the Lord has made I will rejoice and be glad in it. Confess that latter days will be FAR more BLESSED than my former days. You must know and understand that it has gotten as bad for you as its going to get in your situation. The Lord is telling me to advised to flood the atmosphere with the declaration that ALL things are working out for your good.
You have always and forever the ultimate weapon in using the name of Jesus. Finally I say to YOU to stay encouraged So be subject to God. Resist the devil [stand firm against him], and he will flee from you.
Please sow a financial seed of any size into to up keeping of ministry if you are being blessed here. In Jesus Name Be Blessed, Manie
