The Lord recently gave me a powerful word for a young lady who needed spiritual encouragement. As I texted these words to her, I felt the Holy Spirit leading me to share this empowering God word with you.
The enemy’s ultimate goal is to steal your identity in Christ, but he doesn’t have the authority to “steal” what God sealed you with the moment you invited Jesus into your heart. So, since he can’t steal it, he tries to make you believe lies and instill doubt in your heart about who you truly are in Christ. But God through his Word, has given you powerful tools to destroy the lies and empower your heart.
Tools: “The tongue has the power of life and death” (Proverbs 18:21) You must speak life to yourself to combat self doubt and destructive thoughts which are rooted in untruths. Speaking God’s Word, truths and promises out loud activates them over your life, mind and body.
“Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” (James 4:7) Surrender the negative thoughts, insecurities, self loathing, low self esteem and all the things that are in direct opposition with God’s thoughts over you. Resist giving into the lies and refuse giving them authority in your life and the enemy will have no other choice but to flee.
Empowering Word from God led me to share: What you’re going through is an invisible battle that God is fighting for you but you must know who you are in Christ to fight at full capacity. Your identity in Christ is that of a powerful and fearless warrior. You have been given the authority to trample and kill the enemy. You have the power to speak and bring dry bones to life. You have the power to command demons to go back to hell in the Name of Jesus and they must obey. The enemy wants you to believe that you have the identity of a weak, ugly, sick and fearful person but the reality is completely opposite. Don’t allow him to “steal” and high jack what is rightfully yours. Your identity in Christ was given to you the day you accepted Jesus in your heart and no one can ever take that away. So you see, you have the authority to say, anxiety leave my body in the Name of Jesus and it must submit. You have the power to command your thoughts to stop in the Name of Jesus and it must relent. You have Jesus and his angel army on your side! He wants to heal you but you must exert your authority, flash your badge (identity in Christ) and the enemy must flee. You are a Wonder Woman in the spirit realm! Made to be the head not the tail. You are God’s daughter! You are not fatherless. You are not unprotected. You are spoken for and reserved for greatness. Believe him when he says, I will never leave you nor forsake you. Believe him when he says, you are the apple of my eye. You are a powerful child of God! The enemy just wants you to believe that you are hopeless and fatherless. He is a liar! So when anxiety rears its ugly head, speak to it and exert your Holy daughter privileges. Speak to it and watch fear flee. Speak to it and watch God step in and rescue you.
