And I asked the Lord. I left that dinner extremely troubled. I said, Lord, I don’t want to even try to believe this. It takes away all of my confidence, my security. During the ten days that I sought the Lord, the Lord did two things: He not only confirmed the things I had heard, He also opened my mind to understand a lot more of what happens in the spiritual realm that the man could not tell us. And two, He led me to see what we are supposed to do as the things are happening so that we are not defeated, but can overcome. We need to know and really come to terms with three things.
First: How to use the weapons of our warfare. The Bible calls them the armor of God. It is not our armor; it is God?s armor. When we use it, we allow God to fight on our behalf. Second: Understand the relationship between ministering spirits, angels and our spiritual lives, and be sensitive to what is happening in our hearts as a leading regarding what needs to be done in the spiritual realm on our behalf. That brings us to the third thing: The Holy Spirit.
We should not regard the Holy Spirit as our servant, who is serving us and bringing us things. He does not run back and forth between us and the Father to tell Him what we need. That is the angels? job. He stands by our side. Doing what? Guiding us, teaching us, leading us, helping us to pray in the right way. And when these things are happening in the spiritual realm, He lets us know. Sometimes He wakes you up in the middle of the night and say, Pray? But you say No! My time has not yet come? And He says, Pray now! Why? He sees what is happening in the spiritual realm. Sometimes He says, Fast tomorrow! But you say, Oh, no; I’ll start on Monday.
But He understands what is happening in the spiritual realm. We should learn to be sensitive to the Holy Spirit. He guides us in paths of righteousness. Beloved we’ve got to stop here. Maybe tomorrow morning we will talk about how we can pray through knowing the battles in the spiritual realm and how we can break through. And how we can maintain our breakthrough once we have achieved it. Once we learn this, it becomes enjoyable. Then we will learn one thing: The battle is not ours; the battle is the Lords. Hallelujah!
Let’s stand up. Look someone in the eye, and think about how many times that person may have missed what God had for him. Join your hands if you can, with two or three people, and tell each other that there’s no need for any more defeat! We can overcome! There is enough power to overcome! Jesus has already finished the work. Pray for each other that the Lord will help us to overcome. We should not lose. There is enough grace, enough power, for victory”
