NOT EXEMPT

“Yea,and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution” {2 Timothy 3:12}.

You are not trouble proof, exempt or off-limits to the devils attacks, because you are a child of God. As a matter of fact that’s when the attacks increase, and the confirmation you have been waiting for proves, who you belong to, and that you have finally slammed the door in the devils face, to his lies, evil, deceptions, and every kind of sin that he dangles in your face. But to survive his assaults and insults you must remember some very important things such as: the battle is not yours it’s God’s, and He already gave us the victory through Jesus His son, that we are more than conquerors, we are children of God, we have power to tread upon serpents and scorpions, and all the powers of the enemy.

Children of God identify yourself. God wants us to be strong and courageous, don’t be afraid nor dismayed, stop looking at the attacks  and onslaughts of the enemy because their weapons are carnal, but ours are spiritual. In 2 Corinthians 10:3-5 “For though we walk in the flesh we do not war after the flesh; for the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but 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.” This is how we fight my brothers and sisters in Christ, stop playing with the enemy, we are not exempt until Jesus returns for us, then and only then will we be untouchable.

If you are exempt from his attacks, then it means he has you right where he wants you. So you better check your baggage and see where he is hiding out. As Christians we are faced with trials, tribulations and all kinds of abuse on a daily basis, but if we keep our eyes on Jesus, and stop focusing on our dilemma, then the situation will evaporate and not exasperate, it will decelerate and not accelerate, because Jesus is the author and finisher of our faith. When we put all our trust in Him, then we will overcome, we will succeed, and we will triumph but never exempt, or defeated.

When we are faced with circumstances beyond our control we should do like Habakkuk 3:18-19 tells us, “Yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation, the Lord God is my strength, and He will make my feet like hinds feet, and He will make me walk upon mine high places.”  No we are not exempt from the enemy but people in the Bible who overcome tells us how to be exempt. In Psalm 91:1 David tells us that,“He who dwells in the secret place of the most High God will abide under the shadow of the Almighty.” James 4:7 tells us, Submit to God, and resist the devil and he will flee, we are not exempt but we are overcomers.

This only applies to those who are children of God through the acceptance of Jesus as their Lord and Savior. If you have not accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior and you would like to accept Him and open the door of your heart to Him then go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions. Don’t stop there, find a  Bible believing church that knows and follows the God of the universe through His son Jesus,May God give you the wisdom, knowledge and understanding to make the right decisions and keep and guide you in all truth. In Jesus name, Amen.

Now unto Him who is able to keep us from falling and to present us faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy, to the Immortal, Invisible, the Only Wise God, be glory, praise, honor, and thanks.
