The Trap of the Enemy will not Prevail

SUP With Me: Words of Inspiration

Often times, when we lack knowledge of something, we don’t know what to expect. However, when we are enlightened to how something or someone functions, we have a vantage point to be privy to what we did not know before. Knowledge is a powerful thing when recognized and utilized by the right individual. It can bring about good or bring about bad; it all depends on the individual and their perspective of the value of what they have obtained.

So, the question is: What will you do with what you know?

God has provided us with the greatest gift of all, Christ Jesus and His Holy Bible, both being the believers’ vantage point. As a fellow believer, I understand the value of the knowledge in which I have obtained through my belief and time spent with God. I have come to the knowledge of Christ Jesus and the victory He has obtained on my behalf, being a Child of God.

1 Corinthians 15:57 (KJV)

57But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

I now know the schemes of the enemy and the traps in which he desires to catch me in. I now know that with this knowledge and understanding, I can approach people and situations differently. My outlook is not one of defeat, but one of victory. I can encourage myself as I endure and face trials of various kinds. I can reassure myself through God’s word of His faithfulness and goodness toward His people. My hope is not based on the facts that I see and hear, but in the truth that God has declared over my life.

I am a Child of God, I am wanted and loved, I am an overcomer of all things, I am forgiven, I am redeemed, I am wonderfully and beautifully made by my amazing God. Everything attached to me must live and thrive. Everything that I apply my hands to will prosper and succeed as I carry out the work of the Lord for my life.

Psalm 139:14 (KJV)

14I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well.

3Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, 4According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: 5Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, 6To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved. 7In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace; 8Wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence;
Ephesians 1:3-8

Therefore, the enemy has no reign in my life; no input on how I will function or what I will believe. The trap created will not consume me, but will be shut down by the authoritative word of the Lord that I have and will continue to declare over my family and myself.

So, what will you do with the knowledge that you obtain? Will you choose to live in victory or defeat?
