Our Defense

Our Defense

Our adversary, satan, is known as the accuser of the brethren. The accusations come to hinder our resting in the Lord. The stand we take when this type of fiery dart comes our way is the stand for who we are in Christ. At times nothing is said to us specifically, but we can sense a spiritual battle taking place. We resist by resting in the Lord with passion and a vision of His glory.

When accusations came against Jesus, He answered not a word. He easily could have blown the accusers away, but He said nothing. He is our example. The problem with defending ourselves is that we would never be able to stop. Because we believe our justification is in Him, we let the Lord be our defender. He lives to make intercession for us. Our Lord, who chose not to defend Himself, lives to defend us and He never fails, Hallelujah!

We are led by the Spirit of God and obey Him without knowing the details of His plan. We cannot explain to others what only can be understood spiritually. We trust the Lord and rest in Him to reveal His will, from glory to glory

Psalm 62:2 “He only is my rock and my salvation; He is my defense; I shall not be greatly moved.” 

 

On Our Side

On Our Side

As we stand side by side in unity, we experience the presence of the Lord in a measure never reached before. One reality we know: the Lord is on our side.   

The Lord makes intercession for us. He is for us, not against us. He is our helper, comforter and shield. We are free from fear of whatever comes our way. With God on our side, every offense has to slide to the ground. The Lord leads each believer to trust His presence in the midst of whatever is coming from the outside. At times, we get battled from all sides but Christ is in the midst of every crisis. Hallelujah!

Often people come to us to share their disagreements with others; they seek our understanding, compassion and care by trying to get us on their side. There are three sides to every story: each party and the Lord’s side. We want to be on the Lord’s side pursuing peace, reconciliation and love. It’s wonderful to be on the same side as the Lord, and what a joy, comfort and amazing truth to know that He is on our side! He is our strength, and He makes our way perfect, from glory to glory!   

Psalm 118:6 “The LORD is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me?”
