In Matthew 5:12,believers are to rejoice and be exceedingly glad for great is our reward in heaven. The joy of the Lord is our strength for God enables us to rejoice and be exceedingly glad in the midst of adversity. Many are the afflictions of the righteous but the Lord delivers us from them all in Jesus Name. Many generations were persecuted like prophets before you. At times the Christian community is most hurtful, worse than unbelievers. The adversary uses people to attack to discourage from focussing on God. We fight not flesh and blood but against principalities, powers, spiritual wickedness in high places. Christ is Head of church so gates of hell will not prevail in Jesus Name.This means we overcome by the blood of the Lamb, our Saviour and Master Jesus and by our testimony. To defeat the spirits behind the attacks to save the person used to try to distract us. It is painful when people we help betray us although we love them and care deeply about their spiritual growth. Often, we feel used and abused as they say all manner of evil against us. But we devote our time and sacrifice personal comfort to help them. The more they are blessed through divine connection and support to meet their needs, the more they take others for granted forgetting where they started from. The challenge is discern, do your best, gather together in prayer to stop spiritual sabotage. As an intercessor, one is seated in heavenly places far above all principalities and powers. All Power in heaven and earth is given unto us, Power over all power of enemy. Thread on serpents, scorpions and nothing shall by any means hurt us in Jesus Name.No divinations and enchantments shall work against us in Jesus Name.We shall safely dwell in the land in Jesus Name for nothing shall make us afraid. We need to continue to walk in love and forgiveness although one does not have to become best friends with those you forgive. Vengeance belongs to God who will repay them according to the work of their hands. God who sees all secret things so repays to bring forth your righteousness as the noonday. Keep up intense prayer to protect yourself and loved ones and cover them with the blood of Jesus in Jesus Name. God has got the whole world in His hands so you are hidden in the secret place of the Most High God in Jesus Name. You are written in the palm of God’s hand and the pupil of God’s Eyes, so anyone contending with us contends against God who will deliver the prey out of the hands of the terrible enemy for the battle is the Lord’s. If God be for us who can be against us in Jesus Name.
