"Where the Devil Is
Attacking You Is Where the Next Greatest Move of God Is Coming in Power!"
Where the enemy is attacking you right now is the very
place God is about to move...so hold on! "When the enemy comes in like a
flood, the Spirit of the Lord will 'raise up' a standard against him." The
enemy almost always will give away the next move of God. The enemy makes
his move first, but do you see in this scripture and throughout God's word
that God always has the last move that ends in victory? The enemy sends
the flood of doubts, fear, and unbelief first to try to stop us, for he
knows that the battle is already turning in our favor - for the Spirit of
the Lord has already started to raise up a standard against him, coming to
wipe him out and set us free before the battle even starts. It's a fixed
fight! That's why it's called the "good fight" of faith!
I asked the Father, "Lord, in what area are you going to move next in the
earth?" He answered, "In healing...I've already started."
Kathryn Kuhlman always began her meetings with four words: "I believe in
miracles!" It didn't seem to matter to her who else agreed with her. There
would be atheists, unbelievers, and many coming who were hoping to be
healed saying, "Lord, I believe, but help my unbelief!" No sooner did
Kathryn Kuhlman speak those words and the atmosphere became electrified in
the huge auditoriums and down in the overflow rooms in the basement as
miracles started exploding inside of bodies whether they were believers or
not! She knew there was always one other person in that meeting that
really believed in miracles even more than she did...God Himself!
I believe our 'believing system' in the Body of Christ has been broken
down and become weakened over the years. Our problem is that we have seen
many casualties over the years in many areas - especially in healing. We
are in a war. In a war, when a soldier friend goes down and dies, the rest
of the army doesn't give up and quit fighting. They don't stop believing
they are going to win. They fight all the harder, with all they've got
inside of them! Besides, that soldier did not die in vain, for it is like
throwing gasoline on the fire to win the war! You've got even more reason
to fight to win now!
Did you know that when you are fighting a personal battle that you are not
fighting just for your own victory? You are fighting for multitudes.
That's why you must not quit. For when you get your healing...healed
people heal people! Delivered people deliver people! Victory is
contagious. It sweeps through the family, through the whole church, and
out into the world! Saved people save people! The devil trembles when he
sees you getting up after a major blow has knocked the wind out of you!
"God is the One Who Heals, Not Us"
We are called to believe in miracles and healing no matter what
happens. God is the one who heals, not us. A brother who was pastoring a
church once shared how the whole church was praying for a
fourteen-year-old child who was dying apart from a miracle. Everyone was
fasting and praying and believing. The child eventually went on to be with
The pastor cried out to God, asking what more he could have done to see
that child healed? He felt he just didn't do enough and felt responsible
for failing the child. The Lord answered this pastor, "The person who
takes the blame when I don't move, will be the same person who takes the
glory when I do!" We are not the healer - God is. We are called believers
and are called to believe for as long as we have breath. Healing is God's
I have seen more people healed recently when I didn't even feel like
praying for them. God is weaning us from feelings. It's the prayer of
faith that saves the sick. It takes more faith to pray for someone when
you don't even feel like praying for anyone, for you know you need prayer
yourself! But that is what pleases God...our faith, not our feelings.
"Whatever the Enemy is Telling You Right Now, Believe the Opposite"
I believe The Passion of the Christ movie was divinely
released in this moment of history so the world could watch the scourging
and crucifixion. There have been reports when the scourging was being
viewed that many people actually stood up in the theaters and screamed
out, "That's enough - Stop!" Mel Gibson explained how he actually played
down the scourging by showing other scenes at times. He knew that if we
really saw it as long and as brutal as it was that no one would be able to
leave the theaters in their right minds! I believe the scourging was
to stand out so clear and long because the Lord wanted to let us all get a
close up view and know that by those stripes we were healed! "I paid this
much for your healing. It's yours! Contend for it until you get it."
Mel Gibson battled everyday fear, doubt, unbelief, and wondered at times
what on earth was he doing as he was producing The Passion of
the Christ. Hollywood thought he was crazy. No one wanted to invest in
the movie, so he put his own money into it. The Passion of the Christ
so far has earned over 600 million dollars! Sounds like Jesus was on his
Whatever the enemy is telling you right now, believe the opposite. If he
is telling you that you will never make it, start shouting and jumping up
and down, for he is a liar and the truth is not in him. He can only tell
lies. So, if you believe the opposite of what he is saying, you will know
the truth of your situation and the truth will make you free, healed, and
The fact that you are still alive today makes you a living miracle! Since
you are a miracle, it makes it easier to believe for another one!
