There have been times that all of us have felt like we were being swallowed up by our troubles and setbacks. Jesus says, “In the world you shall have tribulation but be of good cheer for I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33)
Recently I read where researchers did a study on the Moses Sole fish in the Red Sea. They found out that it has an incredible protection around it. The sharks in the sea love going after this fish, but there’s one BIG problem. When the Moses sole fish is in the shark’s mouth ready to bite down on their dinner, they soon realize their jaws are locked up and paralyzed. The fish releases a toxic poison that stops the shark from its purpose. What it thought was going to be a hearty dinner ends up being an unpleasant experience.
There will be times in your life that it may appear that the enemy will swallow you up in your situation, but God is always giant steps ahead of the enemy. He has the power to paralyze the enemy and give you the Victory. You need to understand just how much God loves you, and places His angels on assignment to protect you.
I’m not saying that if you serve God that nothing will ever happen to you. But I am saying that God is greater than the weapons that Satan has aimed and designed against you. “No weapon formed against you shall prosper.” (Isaiah 54:17) God is able to stop the enemy dead in his tracks and turn him away. Stand up today and believe that “Greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world. (I John 4:4) Be victorious today and GROW through every struggle because, “If God be for you, who can be against you?” (Romans 8:31)
