Dear sis we have a challenge initiated by Sis Cecille to declare God’s victory. Sumasablay ito, Sis, declaring and giving glory/ life/ and focus to the pain, defeat, and on the seen which is temporary Before God is in the situation. Rather, better to declare the higher reality in the spiritual realm of you are already walking from (not towards) victory. In God’s realm, you are already victorious over your circumstances. His promises are done in Jesus’s name.
Don’t let the now-circumstances limit your view or give license to the enemy to steal today’s joy and peace.
When a thought or message passed thru your mind, ask God for discernment : Is this from You Lord or is this from the enemy?
If it disagrees with Gods word then it’s not God’s will (in this case, self pity and a meditation towards defeat and discouragement)—-it’s from the enemy.
Refuse to agree with the enemy’s lies and schemes of discouragement. Rebuke every negative thought in Jesus’s name. And do Not share the discouragement with others. This is an act of victorious spiritual warfare.
“For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.” 2 Cor 10:3-5 NIV
Zoom out. Zoom out more. Look at things from God’s perspective. Jesus came that you may have life and have it to the full (siksik liglig are umaapaw). The enemy comes ONLY to steal to kill and destroy.
“From now on, brothers and sisters, if anything is excellent and if anything is admirable, focus your thoughts on these things: all that is true, all that is holy, all that is just, all that is pure, all that is lovely, and all that is worthy of praise. Practice these things: whatever you learned, received, heard, or saw in us. The God of peace will be with you.”
Philippians 4:8-9 CEB
