Topic: WRESTLE YOUR WAY THROUGH
Bible Reading: Psalms 2:1-3
📖1….”Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?
📖2….The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying,
📖3….Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.”
🔥Each time the heathens rage against you as a believer, know that you are on the ladder of spiritual growth. Their battles which are unseen, are fought in three different ways against the children of God. They oppose believers that always want to go on with their faith in God. Even though the dividends of their faith cannot be ascertained, yet the enemy opposes them. In 1 Thess 2:2, Paul spoke about how they were opposed because of the Gospel. Yet they pushed on boldly and spoke the Gospel to the people. It was this kind of opposition that Isaac encountered in Gen 26:19-21.
🔥🔥Since the Christian life requires a deeper relationship with God, once a believer gets closer with God to dig out more spiritual knowledge, the lust of the eyes, the lust of the flesh, and the pride of life (1 John 2:15-16), will resist him, pull him away from God, and spiritually kill him… Gen 2:16-17. Sometimes too, the filthy past of the believer, comes calling, and trying to resist him like Joshua the high priest experienced in Zechariah 3:1-3. But Joshua was delivered because of his election by God in verses 2 and 4.
🔥🔥🔥The major pursuit in Christianity is to be saved into heaven. But each time the believer wants to live a life that can take him higher in God, the demonic principalities and powers of the air fight against him. The only way out of all these opposition, resistance and spiritual fights by the princes of the air, is to persistently wrestle through them by a vigorous pursuit of God. Importunity has always opened the most secured door according to Jesus in Luke 11:5-10. When our persistence turns on the fire of victory, our sins will be purged, and God’s power begins to work victoriously in us.
🙏O Lord, give me the boldness to pull through every opposition, out to diminish my faith in you, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏Heavenly Father, erase from me, whatever my flesh is trying to use to resist me from having a deeper relationship with you, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏🙏Thank you Lord, for purging my sins with my persistence to seek your face, in Jesus’ name.
