Good morning, Warriors:
I want to share an experience that happened to me and my husband this weekend, at church. I also want to testify about how good God is.
My husband and I were seated at church and a lady came up us, before church began, and began to speak over my husband, because she said she had been thinking about him. She then proceeded to say some pretty inappropriate things to me and to him. I stayed silent during her talking, as the Holy Spirit told me to keep quiet. After she was finished, my husband and I looked at each with amazement. He said, “What was that??!!”
I explained to him that for whatever reason she had allowed the enemy to use her to “try” and cause confusion in our relationship. Two things she didn’t take into account. First, my husband and I are best friends, prayer partners, and co-worshippers. Second, we know the Word of God. Immediately, after she left our presence, we talked about what just happened and the timing the on how it happened. This is how the enemy works. The enemy tries to disturb, distract, and dilute the word of God. The enemy will use different methods to try to get you to question God or more specifically, your relationship with God.
Praise and Worship was just about to begin and our pastor was continuing his amazing series on being filled with the Holy Spirit. During his sermon, my pastor, through the word of God, CONFIRMED everything that what the lady did earlier was out of order. We didn’t have to say a word to her. The Word of God is sharper than any two edged sword. Sometimes, the only thing you tell the enemy is, “IT IS WRITTEN..”
Amplified Bible (AMP)
3 And the tempter came and said to Him, “If You are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread.” 4 But Jesus replied, “It is written and forever remains written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes out of the mouth of God.’”
5 Then the devil took Him into the holy city [Jerusalem] and placed Him on the pinnacle (highest point) of the temple. 6 And he said [mockingly] to Him, “If You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down; for it is written,
‘He will command His angels concerning You [to serve, care for, protect and watch over You]’;
‘They will lift you up on their hands,
So that You will not strike Your foot against a stone.’”
7 Jesus said to him, “On the other hand, it is written and forever remains written, ‘You shall not test the Lord your God.’”
8 Again, the devil took Him up on a very high mountain and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and the glory [splendor, magnificence, and excellence] of them; 9 and he said to Him, “All these things I will give You, if You fall down and worship me.” 10 Then Jesus said to him, “Go away, Satan! For it is written and forever remains written, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and serve Him only.’” 11 Then the devil left Him; and angels came and ministered to Him [bringing Him food and serving Him].
