Little children, you are of God [you belong to Him] and have [already] defeated and overcome them [the agents of the antichrist], because He Who lives in you is greater (mightier) than he who is in the world. 1 John 4:4 (Amplified Bible)
Where are you today? Are you on top of your mountain of problems, feeling that God is in control or do you feel like the enemy is shooting larger arrows at your home than ever before? Do not allow the enemy to torment you with fear or doubt, but walk in faith. No weapons forged against you will prevail! God is greater!
You shall establish yourself in righteousness (rightness, in conformity with God’s will and order): you shall be far from even the thought of oppression or destruction, for you shall not fear, and from terror, for it shall not come near you. Behold, they may gather together and stir up strife, but it is not from Me. Whoever stirs up strife against you shall fall and surrender to you. Behold, I have created the smith who blows on the fire of coals and who produces a weapon for its purpose; and I have created the devastator to destroy. But no weapon that is formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue that shall rise against you in judgment you shall show to be in the wrong. This [peace, righteousness, security, triumph over opposition] is the heritage of the servants of the Lord [those in whom the ideal Servant of the Lord is reproduced]; this is the righteousness or the vindication which they obtain from Me [this is that which I impart to them as their justification], says the Lord. Isaiah 54:14-17 (AMP)
You are more than a conqueror in Christ! Become a survivor in spite of your marriage problems. Become a conqueror because of the power of your Lord Jesus Christ. He will enable you to walk through deep waters or walk through a fire. Do not be afraid, as “you can survive” by the power of your awesome mighty God.
But NOW [in spite of past judgments for Israel’s sins], thus says the Lord, He Who created you, O Jacob, and He Who formed you, O Israel: Fear not, for I have redeemed you [ransomed you by paying a price instead of leaving you captives]; I have called you by your name; you are Mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you, and through the rivers, they will not overwhelm you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned or scorched, nor will the flame kindle upon you. Isaiah 43:1-2 (AMP)
When we hear of a marriage in trouble due to any number of reasons, I always want to hear that the wounded, hurt and injured spouse has chosen to be a survivor. I pray that every couple who starts to have marriage problems will find one friend or a mom or dad (or loved one) who will become their prayer warrior, speaking hope and the power of the Lord into them and into their marriage.
The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed and qualified me to preach the Gospel of good tidings to the meek, the poor, and afflicted; He has sent me to bind up and heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the [physical and spiritual] captives and the opening of the prison and of the eyes to those who are bound. Isaiah 61:1 (AMP)
Are you worried about how you will survive with the responsibility of your home and your children? Please believe me that I do understand. I have been right where you are today. But God, will meet you in the darkest hours of your night and speak to your heart, “This is the way to go.” The Lord wants you to become a conqueror through the power of the Holy Spirit. Remember to give all the praise and glory to the Lord!
And therefore the Lord [earnestly] waits [expecting, looking, and longing] to be gracious to you; and therefore He lifts Himself up, that He may have mercy on you and show loving-kindness to you. For the Lord is a God of justice. Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) are all those who [earnestly] wait for Him, who expect and look and long for Him [for His victory, His favor, His love, His peace, His joy, and His matchless, unbroken companionship]! Isaiah 30:18 (AMP)
Allow the Lord to become your greatest Counselor, Advocate, Defender, Provider and Teacher. If you will be obedient and surrender your life and marriage to the Lord, He will guide your every step! I pray that you will start to believe and know the love of your Heavenly Father for you and your family. Let me share a very powerful promise that you need to memorize today:
And my God will liberally supply (fill to the full) your every need according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19 (AMP)
What a promise! Our Lord God wants His children to radiate His love, His protection and His provision in any crisis that we may face in our lives.
Are you going to become a conqueror? Yes, you are! In fact, you will become a woman or man of God walking in faith and victory for the rest of your life, but only if you sell out, surrender your all to the Lord every day. The Lord wants every Christian to choose to develop strength, endurance, perseverance and tenacity, maturing in their Christian walk.
Where are you today? Are you on the survivor list or on the casualty list? Get up and shake off the debris and the lies that the devil tried to defeat you with, standing firm, becoming a mighty woman or man of God, a conqueror and a warrior of our Lord Jesus Christ.
