Habakkuk 2:4b (NLT) But the righteous will live by their faithfulness to God.

Early this morning the Holy Spirit started to talk to me about rejecting the lies and deceptions of the enemy. The enemy offers to us all the natural reasonings to accept our circumstances. He whispers to us it is only natural to think you are still sick when the pain is still in your body, or he tells it only makes sense to worry about your rent next month when you only have a few bucks in your pocket right now. The enemy wants us to measure the truth of our situation based on the reality of our circumstances. But the truth is that if what you SEE don't measure up to what God said then ONE of them is a lie. I have grown up to believe that if it walks, talks and looks like a duck then it must obvicously be a duck..right? Well not anymore I have the kind of faith that if it looks like a duck but God says its a fish. Then it MUST be a fish.

I will tell you right now that kind of faith is HARDEST to live by but is the most necessary if we are to have what God says we are to have. It is the faith of Abraham that accepted the (natural) fact that his body was as good has dead but still believed that God was able to do what He promised.

We can't let worry, discouragement and fear seep into your hearts because they give BIRTH to unbelief. Instead we must know that we have POWER over all the power of the enemy and nothing (that contradicts God's word) has the power to us hurt. The truth is that if the reality doesn't line up with what God has said is not really reality at all.
I have said it before but all MOST of us have in this season of our lives is a word. We are going at it alone as we wait to see the manifestation of God's promises show up in our lives. You need to know that a WORD from the LORD is more than all you need. Submit to the truth of God's word and reject the lies of the enemy and he will flee from you as well as taking his lying circumstances with him.

Be Blessed, Manie
