Spiritual Warfare

“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans to prosper you and not harm you, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart” (Jeremiah 29:12).
Oftentimes, before I speak, I take hours, sometimes days reminding myself who God choose me to be! The opposition and attack of the enemy can be so severe, and I take my assignment so serious, if I’m not careful I will literally slip into depression. The devil has almost succeeded on numerous occasions in convincing me, I’m a fraud! That Jesus didn’t choose me to preach, that it’s completely my imagination! Considering my past and varies other factors, it wouldn’t be a stretch. BUT GOD!!! As I read through the books I’ve published and previous sermons I’ve preached, I am reminded – the Spirit of the Lord not only choose me but will cover and speak through me.
No, I don’t use breathing patterns – no, I don’t hoop – no, I don’t run around the pulpit – no, I will not be telling anyone to high-five, slap or shake their neighbor throughout the message – no, I am not charming when I preach, and probably won’t make you laugh. Chances are the Lord is going to use me to sternly challenge our integrity, faith, humility, character, obedience or capacity to love. And, after the message you will either curse me or thank God!
Though, I am different than most – God is still God! But, I have to fight to believe Jesus because the emeny wants me to go somewhere and shut-up! The cost is expensive! For me, it means trying not to loose my mind in the mist of psychological (spiritual) warfare!
If you have similar challenges, remember and meditate on who the Lord has called you to be before the foundation of the earth and feast on His Holy Word, allowing the Spirit of God to manifest that which He has anointed you to do.
