Week of December 11, 2017



       Wherever you step your foot—in your home or job or some place of business, know that God has gone before you.  Whatever the enemy, the devil, tries to do will not prosper, as you have faith that the Lord is in control, and therefore He can stop the enemy’s efforts. 

       Here’s a good way to think of how God goes in advance of where you go.  It’s the same concept of what the military calls an advance force.  This is a task force of soldiers which precedes the main fighting force that is about to go into an area to take it as their objective.  The function of this task force is to do things such as reconnaissance and to seize the best positions for support.  Also they may do minesweeping to make sure all the traps set for the upcoming soldiers have been deprived of their power to harm them. 

       Doesn’t that sound just like God?  Those are all things that He does for you as your advance force.  He does reconnaissance of what the enemy is setting up for you.  Then He seizes the best positions for your support.  And if needed, He will do some minesweeping to get rid of the traps set.  He goes before you to stop the enemy’s efforts.  So you don’t have to enter the day with concern or being upset.  You have the Advance Force who is there to help you fulfill all that He has for you.

       A father tells a tremendous story of how his son experienced this when he was part of the invasion of Iraq in March 2003.  His job was to drive what they call an amtrak.  This is like an amphibious tractor used by the Marine Corps to deliver the equipment needed for the soldiers to take the objective.  At one point, his son had to drive his amtrak into what’s known as Ambush Alley and there his unit came under attack by fire.  The enemy was shooting rocket propelled grenades (RPGs). 

       It appeared as though the amtrak would be destroyed, but God had gone before him as his advance force.  Just moments before the enemy launched a grenade, the most amazing thing happened.  One of the other Marines shot down a telephone pole, and the pole fell down right in front of the vehicle.  It acted as a shield which deflected the incoming RPG.  Later, when they viewed the telephone pole, they saw that it was in the shape of a cross. 

       You may feel that you’re in an ambush alley as that soldier was.  The devil keeps springing all kinds of surprises on you.  But hey, God is in ambush alley with you.  He goes in advance to put the cross in front of you.  You’re protected by the work that Jesus Christ did on the cross.  So when those weapons are shot, they’re going to miss.  Hallelujah.  Believe today that God is watching over your way and has you covered.  Psalm 91:4 says, He will cover you with His pinions, and under His wings shall you trust and find refuge.  That’s His faithfulness.

       I was reflecting on a letter I wrote recently that talks about how we are under the wings of God.  Because of that, the enemy’s efforts cannot prosper against you.  You’re covered.  Here’s a picture of how this looks in the Spirit. 

       The devil sees that you have available the power of God to protect you from his plans.  So he knows he has to pull you out of God’s covering in order to get at your life.  As the wings of God are covering you, Satan sticks his hand in to reach in to pull you out from under those wings.  He sends trouble and difficulty and tries to strip you of those things God is doing for you.  His hope is that you will be pulled out from under those wings and be unprotected from the weapons he wants to throw at your life. 

       But when the devil reaches his hand in to pull you out from under His wings, God just pulls His wings down tighter around you.  He pulls you nearer as you look to Him as your refuge.  He says to the enemy, “No!  You cannot touch them.”  He forbids him from pulling you out from under His wings of blessing and deliverance and health and well-being. 

       In other words, even though the enemy is making efforts against you and shooting off his weapons, they have no effect because God has covered you as your advance force.  He was there with His wings long before the enemy tried to do something against you. 

      Now even though that is true, you do feel the fight.  I mean, there are times you don’t seem to be protected.  It doesn’t appear as if God has gone before you to help you.  The fight is real.  Things don’t seem to be going in your favor.  But remember Who is before you, covering you, working in your behalf.  And believe that you will come out with victory.

A Spiritual Powerline to say out loud:

Here is a powerful prayer to say out loud:          

       Lord, I believe You are my covering.  The enemy cannot reach in and pull me out from under Your wings.  You go before me.  You’re working on my behalf, so I’m coming out with victory!  In Jesus' name.  Amen.

So Thankful!

“I am 100 percent healed and pain free from my fall.  And my workplace is getting better now.  So thankful!”

Things Come Together!

“Thank you for sending me such a wonderful letter.  I have felt such a big power coming from God these last few days.  I have been worried about some bills and having enough money to pay them by a certain time.  I’m finding out if I just work as much as I can and leave the rest to God that things come together.  I have to tell you that I am crying right now as I’m writing this letter.  I think the main reason I cry sometimes is because I know listening to your teachings is so helpful and full of good common sense.  You always say and write just exactly what I needed to hear.  I’m serious.  That’s what makes me cry.  God is so big and wonderful.  Amen.”
