WEEKLY WORD OF POWER AND PRAYER
Week of Aug 13, 2018



Are You Fed

Up With It?


       Sometimes it can seem as if an issue just keeps hanging around.  We battle with it and try to change the conditions or circumstances.  But if we’re not careful we can come to the place where we begin to tolerate it.

         That’s when we need God’s Spirit to create within us a holy fed-up attitude.  We decide we’re going to draw the line spiritually.

       Recognize the devil has gone too far, too long.  He’s passed into your territory so you need to say, “That’s it.  No more will you affect this part of my life.”  Then draw the line, not in the sand, but draw it in the blood.  When the blood of Jesus flowed from that cross, He drew the line between us and Satan’s forces in blood.  That line of blood is there so the enemy can be prevented from crossing over and affecting you. 

       This is not an arbitrary line drawn by your own power from your own thoughts.  It is a blood-line provided by the work of Jesus Christ, and it’s there to prevent the enemy from stepping into your territory to do his work.

       David Green is a man who drew the line and said he would not live in financial need and with unfulfilled dreams anymore.  He came from a poor background, but he decided to get a $600 loan and open his first retail store.  Then after a short time, it seemed as if that dream would never be a reality.  He was about to go under financially and have to close his business. 

       One day he got fed up with what the devil was doing and literally crawled under his desk to pray to God.  He drew the line to stop what was coming against him.  From that point, things began to turn around.  Now his family has a greatly successful company based on biblical values.  You may have shopped at one of his 800 stores: Hobby Lobby. 

       You have to come to the place you’re ready to draw the line.  You have to say, “You go no further” to that problem or frustration or habit or disease.  You say, “You cannot pass this line of blood” to that harassing spirit or tormenting thought or financial need.  When you’re going through the day and some things are going wrong, don’t just keep trying to battle your way through the day, but stop and realize that the devil is crossing the line and begin to pray against him. 

       Stop him from coming into your territory and messing with what God is trying to do in your life.  Just remember that every step you allow the enemy to take is one step closer to being able to affect you.  There’s no reason for him to get that close to you.  You’ve got the line that Jesus drew in blood, and he cannot overpower that. 

       The Bible describes how a man named Jabez had to draw the line.  Everything good that was meant to be his was about to be taken.  First Chronicles 4 talks about how Jabez was honorable above all his brothers.  However, when his mother had birthed him, it had caused so much pain that she named him Jabez, which meant sorrow maker.  So there he was, wanting to experience the blessings and protection of God, but that name…!  It caused him problems every time someone said, “Hey, Jabez!”  They were saying, “Hey, Sorrow-Maker!” 

       So he decided to draw the line and believe prayer would turn things around.  Jabez cried to the God of Israel, saying, Oh, that You would bless me and enlarge my border, and that Your hand might be with me, and You would keep me from evil so it might not hurt me!  And God granted his request (I Chronicles 4:10).  God granted his request!  That means…

       He was blessed.  Promoted.

       Increased and expanded.

       God’s hand was on him for protection and favor.

       He was kept from evil.  Walked in God’s ways
                 and righteousness.

       And he was not hurt. 

       Just think if he had accepted what the enemy was trying to take from him and stayed with that for years to come.  Just think if you accept what the enemy is trying to do with you.  You need to draw the line and say, “I am enlarged not decreased.  I’m not cursed but blessed.  God’s hand is on me.  I’m not prey for the enemy to destroy; he cannot hurt me.  I’m kept from temptation and walk in the ways of God.” 

       You are expressing to the Lord what you want for your life, and you are telling the devil what he’s not going to be allowed to get away with. 

          Decide today that you’re fed up, and you’ve had enough from the enemy.  You’re drawing the line with prayer and faith and standing behind the blood of Jesus.  You believe you will win.  


A Spiritual Powerline to say out loud:

“I AM FED UP WITH IT!”

Here is a powerful prayer to say out loud:               

       Lord, I’m fed up with what the devil is doing.  So I’m drawing the line, and I’m doing it with Your blood.  Therefore he cannot cross that line.  Now, I believe Your work will be done and great victory will be mine.  In the name of Jesus.  Amen.
