And Pharaoh said, Who is the LORD that I should obey his voice to let Israel go? I know not the LORD, neither will I let Israel go.
Are you causing the enemy to fear God?
Sometimes the devil can try your life. It is his job. In those times, if you don’t require the enemy to understand who your God is, he won’t back up.
Luke 4:8 And Jesus replied to him, Get behind Me, Satan! It is written, You shall do homage to and worship the Lord your God, and Him only shall you serve. (Amplified Bible, Classic Edition AMPC)
You can’t stand before the devil like the cowardly lion. You have to know who the God you serve is.
Deuteronomy 10:17 For the Lord your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great, the mighty, the terrible God, Who is not partial and takes no bribe. (Amplified Bible, Classic Edition AMPC)
Exodus 15:7-8 In the greatness of Your majesty You overthrow those rising against You. You send forth Your fury; it consumes them like stubble. 8 With the blast of Your nostrils the waters piled up, the floods stood fixed in a heap, the deeps congealed in the heart of the sea. (Amplified Bible, Classic Edition AMPC)
Jeremiah 10:6 There is none like You, O Lord; You are great, and great is Your mighty and powerful name. (Amplified Bible AMP)
Revelation 22:13 “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End [the Eternal One].” (Amplified Bible AMP)
The God you serve is, was, and Who is to come. He is your strong tower; you can run to Him and be safe. The devil should fear God because you read the end of the story.
Revelations 22:3-5 And there shall be no curse anymore: and the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be therein: and his servants shall serve him; and they shall see his face; and his name shall be on their foreheads. And there shall be night no more; and they need no light of lamp, neither light of sun; for the Lord God shall give them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever. (KJV)
Please agree with me as I pray:
Father, I thank You for prompting me to understand how to resist the enemy. I want him to flee. I repent for shaking like the cowardly lion in the Wizard of Oz as if the devil is stronger than You. I have nothing to fear. I will live my life making sure he understands I know the reason he should fear the God I serve. No weapon formed against me will prosper. What an awe inspiring fact to stand on. What a confidence-building place to be in. I am no longer afraid. I am no longer worried. I am just excited. I stand every day, in full armor, engaged and ready for whatever the day brings because You flung the stars and set the earth in motion. You parted the Red Sea. You raised Jesus from the dead and You live in me. The devil needs to be afraid, very afraid…
