Defeating the foe


With God’s help we will do mighty things, for He will trample down our foes. Psalms 60:12

It’s easy to overlook scriptures like Psalms 60:12, because in the natural I don’t feel like I really have any enemies.  This morning reading this, I thought about the enemies that we face in the supernatural.

For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.
Ephesians 6:12 NLT

God has appointed us to do mighty things. He has already trampled the foe, it was finished at the cross.  Yet, there are so many time,  I allow the voice of the enemy to stop me from doing the things that God has called me to do. I let my own insecurities stop me in my tracks. I let the voices of opposition, speak louder than the voice of my Lord.  I focus on the flesh and blood instead of the true enemy at work.

Jesus trampled the enemy at the cross.  At the resurrection, He overcame them once and for all.  As His child, He has called me to do great and mighty things.  It is time that I recognize my enemy as the evil spirts that are working to destroy me and keep me from the great and mighty works God has appointed for me.  It is time that I recognize the authority I have in Him over the defeated foe.

About Jackie S

I have been through a lot in life, but through Christ I am more than an overcomer. I am not perfect, I will never claim to be. Praise God I am forgiven though. I am rather opinionated. I see most things in black and white and believe honesty is always the best policy. This combination sometimes comes off harsh. The truth is I love people. I truly love helping others and try to believe the best about others. It is easy to find faults, but focusing on strengths is more my style, but I also shoot it straight. If it sounds harsh, know my heart is for something better for you.
