I have a testimony to share this week: I have been teaching and believing that I am who God says I am – I am a child of God and I have the powers and abilities that the Word of God says I do. I live by faith in this teaching. But the enemy has been targeting me intensively lately and by Monday I found myself at a low point, feeling discouraged and depleted. I even felt that the enemy was getting the better of me….

Then I was reminded of a basic principle: Struggle is one of life’s greatest teachers. Struggle is where you learn how God wants to use you in this life. Struggle is where you stop leaning on your own understanding and start leaning on the wisdom of the Lord. It is in the struggle and in the storm that God teaches you strength.

I was reminded, it is essential that I know and fully identify with my identity in Christ….

Whom the Son sets free is free indeed. Your pain from yesterday is finished. Your brokenness is finished. Your hurt is finished. He’ll give you life in place of death. Hope in place of sorrow. Strength in place of weakness. In Jesus name, it is finished!

God is your Father, YOU are a child of the Most High God – nothing is impossible to you, you are (already) more than a conqueror, He is for you, not against you. When you believe that, you will never be the same. FURTHERMORE “For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world – our faith”. (1John 5:4) – you can overcome everything the world throws your way empowered by an overcoming faith rooted in the victory of the Son of God. “But I don’t FEEL victorious…” You cannot declare negative things about yourself (and give power to the enemy) and expect to live a positive life! Align with the Word!

I needed to lay hold of my overcoming faith: No weapon formed against me shall prosper, no enemy can defeat me, and no barrier can keep me from God’s promise. I am a champion, because of what Christ gave me at the cross

Jesus never promised you an “easy journey” – but He did promise to be with you through it all and that He has already overcome the world – you already have victory over the enemy – he is already defeated. Then why do we let ourselves live “defeated”? Because we have not yet fully identified or taken possession of our new identity in Christ.

God’s plans for you will prevail! No man, no hater, no devil can stop what God has for you. Receive the FINISHED work of Jesus. There is nothing that the blood of Jesus cannot handle! He has ALREADY given you victory

When God says throughout His Word that He will sustain you it literally means that He will strengthen you, He will provide for you. It means that He will guide you, that He will nourish you, that He will open things up for you.

You have reason to rejoice today because the God that we serve is sitting on the throne and is in total control. Everything will be alright. Isa 41:10 Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand

Let all discouragement be broken off now & the Lord show you the deception of the enemy and the truth of His love and hope AND your identity in Christ

  1. Blessed be the Name of the Lord. Thank you for this wonderful site. So many Christians, true believers, are tired of this fight but, as you say, God has already defeated the enemy and if God be for us, who can be against us. I look forward to everything on this site and can’t wait to see the works of God on here.
    God’s richest blessings.

    1. Dear Belinda, thank you so much for your comment and your encouragement. I am eager to welcome you as a regular reader and participant in the blog. Salvation comes from no other than our Lord – not only has He saved us from hell itself but also from all the pressures of hell – He is victorious and we share richly in His victory!
      May you have a wonderful weekend! (Look out for my new post coming out next week!)
      Love, Linda

    1. WOW Lani 🎆✨, what an energizing, thrilling response – 😄 I’m so glad you’re loving it and your enjoyment blesses me tremendously. You sound like a terrifically joyful person – somebody that everybody wants to be around. It reminds me of a powerful statement that Matthew Hagee once made: “The joy that I have the world did not give, and the joy that I have the world cannot take away”
      Jesus says: “These things I have spoken to you that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be made full” (John 15:10-11) and I love the strong, yet simple declaration in Nehemiah 8:10 “The joy of the Lord is my strength” in a “dark” time of my life I was introduced to the flipside of the coin: If the enemy steals your joy, he has your strength.
      But I am sure, like me, you know that life’s not always easy or fair causing joy to dim or even depart. But I pray that your life will be filled with the joy that Jesus gives and that it will prevail durring the good and the bad times.
      I’m working on a new post – hope to release it soon!
      Keep well and blessings to you
      💚 Linda

    1. Dear Esma, YES YES YES!!!! To all your questions. I have always enjoyed writing but know nothing of webdesign. I had a couple of posts written already and was blessed to find a clever webdesigner who put it all together for me in a user friendly website with easy instructions to follow when I want to add to it. I had to find my feet at first but it gets easier and easier. The blog has been running for around 4 months now. As far as theological knowledge is concerned – if you happened to read my testimony you’ll know that I have no training and passionately learn from and about God just by reading, worsiping, praying and walking with Him. I am totally unqualified. And when I felt that God called me to start writing I was confounded at first because “I didn’t know enough” – but when do we ever? It burnt inside me until I had no other option but to put pen to paper and as far as your question goes if someone with little experience could do it:
      “But God chose those whom the world considers foolish to shame those who think they are wise, and God chose the puny and powerless to shame the high and mighty. He chose the lowly, the laughable in the world’s eyes – nobodies – so that He would shame the somebodies. For He chose what is regarded as insignificant in order to supersede what is regarded as prominent, so there would be no place for prideful boasting in God’s presence. (1 Cor 27 – 29).
      So if you feel something stirring inside you GO FOR IT!!!!!
      💚 Linda
