Th threat of the battle

1 Peter 5:8 Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. That is the thing with the enemy he goes around doing a bunch of heeing and hawing but has no real authority or power to do anything. There is someone out there right now that is going through something and it is just the threat of the battle that already has you running scared. The Lord wants you to know tonight that whatever it is you are facing IT doesn't have the power to kill you and in fact it will only hurt as much you tell yourself it will.
If you can endure the pain of staying there you have MORE than enough of what it takes to get out and be free. In 2 Kings 7:3-4 There were 4 starving lepers sitting in the midst of a famine. They decided in faith to throw themselves on the mercy of the Aramean army because be it by them or in the aftermath of the famine they felt they were going to die. Read the rest of their amazing outcome in the chapter. The point I am trying to make is that sometimes it takes more of an effort to stay where you are than to just let go and move on. We think that because we have unsuccessfully tried before to do this or do that it will never happen. The truth is you are right now living in more faith than you have ever had before in your life. It is time to stop allowing the enemy into deceiving you that it can't be done. Victory with Christ is NOT like the roll of a dice. It is a guaranteed thing. You can make it. You can do it. This is an easy win. Be Blessed In Jesus Name, Manie
