The enemy is on assignment to mess with your head, play with your emotions and disrupt your praise (Revelation 12:9). The enemy is intentional, purposeful and knows how to make a lie sound like the truth (2 Corinthians 11:14). When the enemy tries to break in on your praise, you have to put your armor on and tell hell No! (Ephesians 6:11)
When the enemy is trying to turn you around, put doubt in your determination and prey on your promise, he will use lies to sweet talk you into turning against yourself, your truth and your potential. When the enemy is in your head, he uses words like, “I can’t, It’s too much, It won’t work, Why me, It’s impossible and There’s no way, I don’t have what it takes, Maybe it’s not for me, I will never get over this, I will never be happy again, We can’t fix this.”
God is not in negative, defeating and miserable conversation, the enemy is. The Holy Spirit does not speak defeat, the Holy Spirit speaks life: “All things are possible, no weapon formed against you will prosper, greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world, you’re more than a conqueror, hope never fails.” When the enemy breaks in and tries to mess with your head, attack your praise, you have to attack his lies with the truth. The enemy knows that if you don’t fall for his lies, you will walk into your promise.
You won’t be played with. You won’t be tricked and teased by lies. You weren’t rejected, God protected you from hands that could not hold your potential. You won’t let one ounce of your Christ-esteem or God-fidence be connected to what they think about you (Psalm 17:8). You’re not out of options, your options and your help come from the Lord (Psalm 121:1-2). You might be bleeding, weak or afraid but you have the power to walk (Psalm 43:4, 2 Corinthians 12:10). You’re not out of ideas, you have access to divine connections and wisdom (John 14:14, James 1:5). Your life is not over, their role in God’s plan for your life is over (Jeremiah 29:11). You didn’t lose, God promoted you to your potential (Genesis 50:20, Romans 8:28). They didn’t stop you, God’s plans for your life are unstoppable (Numbers 23:19, Isaiah 22:22). Tell hell No!
This means war! The enemy is not after what happened, what you lost or who did what, the enemy is after your peace, your hope and your potential (John 10:10). The enemy knows that if you can think right, you can fight right (James 4:7). When you’re under mental attack, remember, everything you say can and will be used against you: “The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit” (Proverbs 18:21).
Your potential is so important, so valuable, so precious, and the enemy knows that. You’re not what happened, you’re what’s going to happen when you walk in your power. They didn’t win, God holds your victory in the palm of His hands. You were created with purpose, potential and power — the enemy wouldn’t be attacking you if the favor of God was not surrounding you (Psalm 5:12).
Tell hell No! You will not water dead things. You will not give the enemy permission to speak over your family, over your relationship, over your finances, over your breakthrough, over your prayers. You will not be talked to like you’re a nobody. You will not be talked out of your promise. You will not let the enemy tell you what to think about you. Let your voice be heard! Keep speaking those things into existence as though they were — Don’t let the enemy disrupt your praise with lies another day!
Your power is in your hope, your hope is in the Lord, and hope will never disappoint you (Romans 5:5). If you don’t give up, you will do what God said you can do. If you don’t let them break you, God will give you a breakthrough. Tell hell No!
Share with someone you love, someone fighting the good fight! Be blessed.
