My daughter’s region was hit by a tornado this weekend. She is okay but she was without power for 24 hours and could not start her new job this weekend. She lost two days of pay.
Yesterday, my son was in a car accident. He is physically okay but this will have a huge financial impact on him.
I am ticked. Not at my children but at the enemy of our souls. After I calmed down after hearing the news about my son, I thought “What is going on?”
I have been interceding on behalf of my students. They are dealing with some really yucky stuff. I spent most of my drive to work yesterday praying for them. So of course the enemy wants me to believe “If I had been praying for my own children instead of my students, this wouldn’t have happened.”
So yesterday, during my planning (while still working) I cranked up the worship music in my room and I worshipped and prayed. I continued praying for my students while praying for protection over my family.
I don’t know who he thought he was messing with but I WILL see victory on behalf of my students AND he is going to pay my children back twice what he has stolen from them.
Not today Satan! Not my students! Not my children! Your schemes against my family, my students will not prosper. You and your accusing tongue will be quiet. I am a daughter, a friend of the Most High God. God almighty will avenge my cause.
If it seems the enemy is “attacking” you, look at where you are making progress in the spiritual realm. It could be a ploy to distract you and prevent the progress you are making. Keep persevering. You will be victorious if you press through. Your victory is coming.
“But in that coming day no weapon turned against you will succeed. You will silence every voice raised up to accuse you. These benefits are enjoyed by the servants of the Lord; their vindication will come from me. I, the Lord, have spoken!”
Isaiah 54:17 NLT
