Over the past several days I’ve been battling the things the devil is so clearly trying to attack humanity with.
Every time I coughed, he’d whisper, “uh oh, are you getting sick?”
If I sneezed, he’d say, “this is the beginning of the symptoms.”
If I was cold, he’d laugh, “maybe you should stay away from everyone.”
Although I am not fearful of this virus, I’ve been continually declaring healing verses over myself and constantly rebuking the enemy. Frankly, it’s been pretty exhausting.
Yesterday afternoon, I read Psalm 91. Although the entire Psalm is powerful, 9-10 heavily hit my spirit;
“because though hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation; there shall no evil befall you, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.”
I have made the Lord my refuge, my most High. He is my dwelling place, my safety, my health, my peace, therefore, no evil can come near me and no virus is allowed in my home.
This promise has already been given to me, so I don’t have to constantly decree, declare, fast, pray, bind, rebuke, etc, because I have already done my part when I made Him my God
Yes, I will continue to pray, and yes, I will fast and read the Word, but I don’t have to be in a constant state of defense like I have been for the past week. The battle for my health was won on Calvary, and I received the reward of that victory when I declared Jesus as Ruler over my life.
As I sat with my bible in my hands a great peace swept over me because I knew God’s got me.
He has my safety
He has my healing
He has my destiny
He has my victory
The fighting is over, the battle already won. I am a covered in a cloak of protection, I am breathing air filtered by the Holy Spirit. There is nothing, again I say, there is NOTHING the enemy can do to me to slow me down or take me out.
I do not belong to this world, for though I may be in it, I am not of it.
This means that the things that affect the world do not affect me.
The things that scare the world have no hold on me.
The things that harm the world leave no mark on me.
This situation has made me realize that the battle is not for healing, safety, prosperity, etc, but rather to simply believe that these things have already been given.
The big battle has been won; it was won over 2,000 years ago by a Savior named Jesus. Our battle, the human battle, is to receive that victory and wear it every day like armor and refuse to let it go regardless of how the world may come and try to take it off of us
Don’t let the devil steal your victory, it was given to you freely.
God has you, all you have to do is believe it.
“Thus saith the LORD unto you, Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God’s.” –2 Chronicles 20:15
