There are more WITH YOU than AGAINST YOU!!!

The enemy absolutely loves to distract us from the truth and throw unpredicted circumstances, symptoms, and problems our way, all designed to get us to think we're washed up, finished, hopeless!  Here is the truth -- the enemy knows he can't possibly steal our true riches in Christ, so his familiar tactic is to try to get us to lose sight of anything and everything else and deceive us into thinking we're facing impossible circumstances.  Whatever is happening in your life remember that God specializes in what we may think are insurmountable odds.

If you are facing what looks like an impossible situation today I encourage you to open your eyes to what God wants to show you in the spirit.  Remember when the army surrounded the Israelites in II Kings 6:15-17?  A servant was absolutely struck with fear came to Elisha and told him the devastating news.  However, Elisha chose peace and reassured the servant..."do not fear, for those who are with us more than those who are with them..."   Elisha chose to respond with prayer and what happened?  Suddenly the servant's eyes were truly opened to the spirit realm...they saw the TRUTH, which was that all of the hills around them were covered with horses and chariots of fire!!!!!  THERE WERE MORE WITH THEM THAN AGAINST THEM!

God's got your back!!!!

Spiritual realities ARE your realities.  What is going on in the spiritual realm is every bit real as whatever circumstance you were just hit with.  Keep your eyes on what is TRUE, not on the distractions of the enemy.  Moment by moment, God will give you instructions for victory.  He has provided people to surround you and fight this battle with you in the spirit. 

Fear is something I have battled in my life, and I know it's power -- fear can destroy you if you let it.  Don't let it!!!  Over and over again God instructs us not to fear.  If you add up all the places He told us not to fear it would number more than 365!  That's at least once a day that God is reminding you, "don't fear!"

I truly don't know where I'd be if God didn't have my back!
