Good morning child of God!
Notice how, when you refuse to give in to the enemy’s ways, you are dismantling him. He loses a little more power over you with every temptation that you stop cold in its tracks. His strength is unable to act without us. He wants you to bite, he wants to drag you to the cellar to become his slave.
And, every single time you choose to act within the Shield and refuse him, your spiritual muscle gains strength. Father God surrounds you as a shield. When you call on its protection, you have no idea the power you are unleashing. No idea. Build there.
‘You know all about it, Lord. You have encircled me; You have placed Your hand on me. ⌊This⌋ extraordinary knowledge is beyond me. It is lofty; I am unable to ⌊reach⌋ it.’ (Psalms 139:4-6 HCSB)
