Topic: FRUSTRATION: THE ENEMY’S WEAPON
Bible Reading: Numbers 32:6-9
📖6….”And Moses said unto the children of Gad and to the children of Reuben, Shall your brethren go to war, and shall ye sit here?
📖7….And wherefore discourage ye the heart of the children of Israel from going over into the land which the LORD hath given them?
📖8….Thus did your fathers, when I sent them from Kadeshbarnea to see the land.
📖9….For when they went up unto the valley of Eshcol, and saw the land, they discouraged the heart of the children of Israel, that they should not go into the land which the LORD had given them.”
🔥Many people are not able to enter into their promised land because the enemy uses the spirit of discouragement to stop them. This spirit creates a feeling of disappointment or defeat in the minds of the success seeker, and he is unable to accomplish his purposes. The bottom line of the invitation of frustration by the enemy, is to weaken the faith of the believer. In our text taken from Numbers 32:6-9, Moses warned the children of Gad against avoiding war like their forefathers, when they were sent to spy the land of Canaan in Numbers 13. When they returned in verses 25 to 33, they frustrated the children of Israel by their evil reports.
🔥🔥Even in our daily lives, the most potent weapon often employed by the enemy to derail us from pursuing our success is discouraging frustration. Even though the great and effectual door opened for Paul for ministerial success by God was full of adversaries in 1 Corinthians 16:9, he never gave in to the oppositions. There is no man or woman with success story that never met with either human or spiritual frustration. All these are the enemy’s weapons.
🔥🔥🔥But to overcome such discouraging frustration, one needs to be strong like Joshua and Caleb in Numbers 13. God said in Isaiah 54:15 that, surely the enemy shall gather against us with songs of discouragement like Sanballat and Tobiah did to Nehemiah in Nehemiah 4:1-3, when he was building the walls of Jerusalem, but as Nehemiah defeated them with prayers in verses 4 & 5, so shall we also defeat those frustrating us. Beloveth, if the secured sepulchre of Jesus with a stone door, Pilate’s seal and the night watchmen could not discourage women from going to Jesus’ grave, then, know your God, be strong and pray to conquer every frustration without fear.
🙏I command every spirit of frustration shot at me by the enemy to miss me, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏O Lord, give me the boldness and your divine strength, to always overcome the adversaries assigned to hinder me from accessing my open doors, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏🙏Thank you father, for turning the discouragement, frustration and reproach of our enemies upon their own heads, in Jesus’ name.
