Bro trying to get your STUFF!!! #What #WatchOut #Part2 #Prophetic
Hold up. Wait a minute. Is this joker serious??
He is. The devil/demons are serious. When God sends you into a wilderness, the enemy is looking for an opening. Any opening will do. He’s waiting on an opportunity to kill, steal, and destroy! He’s about his business! We can’t hate him for that. But just as he is about his business, can you be about yours?
What do you do when the enemy is coming for you and you didn’t send for him? I’ve learned through scripture that you don’t have to send for a demon. Demons will come for you. Your weakness actually sent for them! Watch this:
Matthew 4 The Message (MSG)
4 1-3 Next Jesus was taken into the wild by the Spirit for the Test. The Devil was ready to give it. Jesus prepared for the Test by fasting forty days and forty nights. That left him, of course, in a state of extreme hunger, which the Devil took advantage of in the first test: “Since you are God’s Son, speak the word that will turn these stones into loaves of bread.”
You see, Jesus was in the wilderness hungry. That was his weakness. His weakness allowed the enemy to come for him. The devil saw that Jesus was hungry (his weakness), so he tried to use his weakness to tempt him!
How many times has this happened to you? Somebody gets on your last nerve. They see that you’re weak right now. You’re mad. They know the right buttons to push. They see your weakness. Instead of using wisdom like Jesus did…you go off! Not just a little…all the way off! You’re mad. You got to let them know that you aint the one! Sounds familiar??
See, the enemy is looking at our weaknesses. That’s how he gains entry into our lives. Think about it like this. If you’re an addict. Your thing is… let’s say….. cocaine. Well the enemy understands that your weakness is cocaine so he’s not going to come tempt you with a beer! He’s coming at you with some coke! Maybe your thing is sex. It’s hard for you to hold out. The enemy is coming at you with a sexy brother or sister that knows what to say and how to say it! He’s not coming at you with cocaine if that’s not your vice. You get what I am saying?
You see… Jesus had a Word for the devil. He was adamite about overcoming His weakness and not letting His weakness overcome Him while He was in a wilderness.
God is challenging you to do the same thing! Don’t let your weakness win in this season! Whatever or whomever it is….don’t let it/them win. You’re stronger than you think. Be wise. Choose to win on purpose and with purpose. #Selah
