Summary: I don’t care what you are facing today: One word from God is all you need.
Before I start preaching I need to prophesy to somebody and I need to tell you that tonight is your night for a turn around.
And I decree to you that in the very same place that the enemy said it was gonna end, you’re going to step into a new beginning and the greatest blessing of your life.
Begin Reading 2 Chron 20:1
The children of Moab and the children of Ammon and with them other beside The ammonites came against Jehoshaphat to battle.
We could assign names to these enemies that apply to us personally.
We could say: Financial Trouble, or Health problems, and Family problems and attacks on our character, and attacks on The ministry,.. And here’s The worst part of it all.
(They all came at once)
Have you ever Felt Like ’you were in The middle of a war zone and The enemy Was surrounding you?
you Turned to the east and There was the enemy, you turned To the west and there Was a different enemy
you turned to the North and There Was no relief
you Turned To the south and it looked hopeless.
I know tonight by the Spirit of the Lord: That somebody here tonight is in that very same situation.
You Love God, you’re doing your best to serve God, You’re doing your best to live right
you’re reading your bible, you’re praying, you’re coming to church, You’re paying your tithes, you’re Sowing.
but you’re in the Fight of your life, and You don’t see any sign of it letting up.
You engage one enemy and think maybe your making some progress, Then all of a sudden you look and The enemy has reinforced and Comes On even Stronger.
Then here comes those people who feel Like It’s Their Job and their ministry to tell you how bad it is. and how mean The enemy is
and all They do is magnify what the devil ’s doing
And the bible says.. Jeshosha-phat Feared
Faith comes by hearing, and Fear comes by hearing
The greatest weapon Satan has is Fear (Because Fear will open the door to sickness and disease. depression, oppression. Worry anxiety, stress, confusion).
Fear will steal your Joy. and your peace Fear will bring you into bondage mentally emotionally and spiritually.
Job said: Job 3:25 For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me.
Fear is a child of the devil
IJn 4:18 says: Fear hath torment
2 Tim 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of Fear, but of power and of love and of a sound Mind.
I don’t care who you are, or how spiritual you are, or how anointed you are, at some point in your Life you are going To have To Face off with Fear
People are paralyzed by fear, held in bondage and captivity by fear: Even Christians can find themselves a prisoner to fear.
Today fear has many faces: Many today are living in fear of a bad economy, fear of terrorists, fear of losing their income, fear of losing their homes, fear of losing their social security, fear of earthquakes, and Tsunami’s and fear of radiation poisoning.
Then there’s fear of sickness and disease: Some people live all their lives in fear of getting some deadly disease.
Some live in fear of failure, afraid to try anything new because they might fall or fail.
Fear of criticism, fear of persecution.
The only way to move Forward is to Conquer The spirit of Fear.
The First Thing Jehoshaphat did when he was attacked by the spirit of Fear was he turned to the Lord.
2 Chro. 20:3 And Jehoshaphat feared.
He Feared but he made The right Choice, he turned To God.
He set himself to seek the Lord and proclaimed a Fast Throughout all Judah
I want To say something right Here:
God Gave To The church everything We need to overcome in this life and Advance The kingdom Of God - Our weapons are not Weak they are mighty, They are powerful, they are effective.
The Bible says: 2 Cor 10:3-5
The weapons of our warfare are not carnal but they are mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds, casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.
But it does not matter how powerful your Weapons are. If you do not pick them up They are useless as far as you are concerned.
We lose many battles as Christians, not because the enemy is greater, not because he is smarter or has better weapons.
But simply because we do not take Full advantage of what we have been given.
