Today’s Daily Devotional from Pastor Andrew Bills
“Don’t You Know That What You’re Dealing With Is Not Natural?”
Biblical history has certainly revealed that God has a lengthy history of watching over His people and that GOD’S PRESENCE AMONG HIS PEOPLE HAS ALWAYS BEEN UNDERESTIMATED BY OUR ENEMIES.
On various occasions, demonic activity, Satanic entrapment, evil plans of destruction and ungodly plots have been spoiled or defeated as God’s people have stood in faith, looking to Him for victory over adversity.
Whatever you’re circumstances, God Is Able To Break Every Demonic Chain that will try to hold you captive and destroy you.
In 2 Kings Chapter 6, we learn that war had broken out between King Benhadad of Syria and King Jehoram of Israel. Many of planned surprised ambush tactics or sneak guerrilla warfare strategic maneuvers by the Syrian King were revealed, uncovered and brought to naught because the King of Israel received advanced knowledge, anticipated and then spoiled their secret attacks.
Realizing that the Israelites were aware of his every move and overwhelmed by the disappointing frequency of his failed secret plans, the King of Syria immediately called all of his chiefs of staff into an urgent meeting. For he suspected treason, and believing that he had an informer within his ranks, he wanted the traitor exposed. But he was wrong.
2 Kings 6:11-12 NLT says, “The king of Aram (Syria) became very upset over this. He called his officers together and demanded, “Which of you is the traitor? Who has been informing the king of Israel of my plans?” “It’s not us, my lord the king,” one of the officers replied. “Elisha, the prophet in Israel, tells the king of Israel even the words you speak in the privacy of your bedroom!”
The words uttered and his plans of attack that were made in his private chambers under the cloak of darkness, were being revealed to the Prophet Elisha by God. Then Elisha would provide the king of Israel with the revealed information and Israel’s victory was made secure.
Faith in God doesn’t make things easy, BUT IT ALWAYS MAKES ALL THINGS POSSIBLE! And God’s presence and grace always makes the difference. Seek His face and you’ll also see the mighty hand of God moving in your midst.
It proved to be a costly mistake for the Pharaoh of Egypt when he made the fatal decision to chase the Israelites into the Red Sea, but God was supernaturally directing Moses. It proved to be a costly mistake when The Pharisees persecuted The Apostles in an attempt to stop them from preaching the resurrection of Jesus Christ, as God poured out great grace upon them, the Word of God spread more rapidly around the world.
No matter what situation you facing, if you draw close to The Lord, The Holy Spirit will begin to reveal wisdom and direction to you that could not be known without Him. And whatever enemies you’re dealing with, will once again be surprised, spoiled and overtaken because of God’s grace and awesome presence.
So never allow yourself to be depressed or overcome by difficulties. Remember that you have unlimited resources in The Word of God and The Holy Spirit through Christ Jesus. Even though all Satanic attacks are orchestrated from hell, our strength and victory comes through the cross of Christ which was orchestrated from the throne room of God.
Therefore, realize that the greater the difficulties, the greater God’s grace will be in your midst as you trust in Christ.
