Protection Brings Victory.

Are you feeling fear today? Are you worried? God wants us to trust Him so we can live the life of freedom Jesus died to give us, including freedom from fear and worry.

Acts 28:3-6 relates an incident in Apostle Paul's life. He was in a ship wreck. After all made it safely to shore, Paul joined the others gathering sticks to build a fire; they were cold from their sea soaking. Then a poisonous serpent, driven out of the pile of sticks as the fire heated, attached itself to Paul’s hand. The natives thought Paul would surely die, and so watched and waited. But Paul unconcernedly shook off the serpent and went on about his business.

Like Paul, we are part of God’s team doing the work He puts before us. That is our life journey, and as we are obedient and succeed in molding our love relationship with our Lord, the enemy will feel the heat of the glory of God; he will go on the attack to try and distract us, stop us, interfere with our relationship, belief, and trust in the Father.

When the doctor told me "you have breast cancer", I could almost see this little demon snarling "we gotcha now", but my faith had developed somewhat already. Then when God gave me the Scripture " Isaiah 43:1(NLV) But now the Lord Who made you, O Jacob, and He Who made you, O Israel, says, “Do not be afraid. For I have bought you and made you free. I have called you by name. You are Mine! I knew God was with me telling me He loves me. Then when He added verse two. . .
2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you, and through the rivers, they will not overwhelm you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned or scorched, nor will the flame kindle upon you. . . it was a done deal; that Scripture forged iron in my soul. The enemy tried his best to cause fear to attack me, with signs calling for further tests etc, but fear was immediately repelled.

Faith's response is to unconcernedly shake “it” off, whatever assailant “it” is, and trust in and depend totally on God. His powerful hands protect us from any attempted poison of the enemy so we are able to move on without fear like Paul. Others will watch how we react to poisonous strikes on our journey, and as this faith in God's protection generates even more strength and victory in us, it also acts as witness to others.

How do we get to where we look at this poisonous snake attached to our hand and not fear? Where does our strength come from? God-encounters like I shared above form a foundation; once we truly trust we will experience the glory of God and His love for us, then we will never falter and lose faith.

Looking back I could see the preparation God had done in my life before the devilish attempt to poison my mind with fear. God is so good! As we establish a sturdy faith, we can persist and push through the enemy assaults; we march on past disappointment, pain, and fear, knowing God has a plan for our life and is fulfilling it.

God will use every faith experience to erect a sturdiness, a resilience in our inner being that cannot be defeated. We put one foot in front of the other, and move on recognizing God is in control, and refusing to allow any doubt or unbelief to enter in. Then we always come out in victory.
