No attack you face as a Christian is ever permitted by God. When a Christian says, “These attacks I’m facing were sent by God to test me and make me more humble,” that is a lie of the devil because the Bible says, “Behold they shall surely gather together but NOT BY ME.” Therefore, any challenge or negative condition you are facing is not permitted by God.
If you are having a financial challenge, a health challenge, a marital challenge, or opposition from your workplace, then you need to understand and settle in your heart that it was not permitted by God.
Isaiah 54: 15 also says, “...whosoever shall gather against you shall fall for thy sake.” From there, three things are clear:
(1) Enemies shall gather together,
(2) Their gathering was neither permitted nor originated by God.
(3) When oppositions gather, they will fall for you and you will overcome them.
However, if the opposition against you will fail and if those that gather against you will ever fall for your sake, you must know how to raise a counter-attack as a Christian.
Don’t accept the pain, loss, evil and deprivation of the devil in your life. Don’t adapt to the torment of the devil in your life. Lift up your voice in prayer and combat everything the enemy sends against you today in prayer and faith.
PRAYER: Lord, I see the truth that you do not permit evil against me. Today, I take my place as a soldier of Christ and I declare an end to every warfare risen against me in Jesus’ name. Amen.
