During my quiet time I was reading about “word curses” and when spoken can wreck havoc over your life, business, or ministry.
These “word curses, when strategically spoken can have the same effect as an one, two, knockout punch in the boxing ring. The only difference is that the “word” wounds to the soul does not manifest as quickly as the physical wounds. More importantly, when left unchecked the results can be cancerous to your vision, hopes, and dreams.
The enemy will always attack you in your purpose. He will always attack when you are moving closer to it. The attacks can be word curses and people speaking against on your job, business, or the arenas in which you operate. Other times these attacks can be seemingly unrelated to your purpose or vision. I pondered on this and I heard that we are so busy watching the “bombs bursting in air,” and all the mayhem the enemy is kicking up around us that we forget that we are in warfare. We are in a battle. The enemy does not play fair. He is out to annihilate you.
Why are you watching the explosive? You are more powerful than those that are opposing you. Use the authority on which you stand and put a stop to it. You have the same power and anointing in you to speak to the raging sea and command it to “be still.” Pick up your weapon and fight. Advance toward the enemy, do not turn around, and run.
Pursue the dream that God has given you. Like Nehemiah, build the wall and fight. Fight the enemy and build. For if you put your tool down to fight the enemy, the dream will stop being built, and if you try to build without fighting back you will be defeated.
In Nehemiah 4, Sanballat was indignant that the Jews were rebuilding the wall, restoring, the foundation, and closing the gaps, (weaken walls are entry points for the enemy to gain access, enter in, and take control). They, (Sanballat, Tobiah, the Arabs, and the Ammonites) conspired together to attack and create confusion. This did not deter Nehemiah, because he
- Prayed to God
- He was on the lookout (set a watch) against them night and day.
Sanballat, sent “word curses) through letters of discouragement, lies, false prophecy, and started rumors against Nehemiah to stir fear in Nehemiah and the hearts of the people. Nehemiah resolved in his heart that he would not stop until the wall was built, restored, and completed.
Lies, false accusation, rumors, and misunderstandings will come to shut your mouth and halt your vision. Think it not strange when these things happen to you. You do not have time to look at what the enemy is doing, therefore, do not fix your eyes on his strategies. Keep your eyes and mind focused on the fact
1) that the battle is yours
2) victory is certain
3) Fight and build
4) Build and fight
Do not let the enemy steal your vision and/or your purpose. If you are a threat to the kingdom of darkness, you are on His hit list. Time to rise up and stand in the authority that God has to you. No more fitting in. People are looking for real answers and real solutions. #rescriptyourlifeforsuccess #fightenemy #allpowerisgiventome #yourweaponisprayer #action
