We are living in crucial times. Times that are evil. We need to be awake, sober-minded, and vigilant.

 

As a Believer and a son/daughter of the Most High GOD, you are precious. HE has placed in you KINGdom treasures. You have been bought by GOD through HIS SON’s divine Cross and the Blood of JESUS CHRIST. Therefore, brother and sister, you are marked and highly sought after by GOD.

 

Unfortunately, you have an enemy who also tries to ensnare you of your GOD-given destiny and purpose. He prowls around like a roaring lion, ready to pounce on you on every corner. He uses many tactics—to mention a few: fear, doubt, shame, pride, self-reliance and unforgiveness.

 

We can easily be entangled when our heart posture is ensnared by any other thing, including excessive worry, anger, idols and even status or wealth. 

Thank GOD for HIS unfailing Love that corrects and brings us into continual alignment with HIS Heart and absolute Truth. HE is the one that increases knowledge and wisdom. HE has secured us with HIS divine Comforter and Counselor, the HOLY SPIRIT, so that we have divine weapons, strategies and power to keep us on track. 

 

HIS communion is essential. As JESUS-followers, we have a duty to have relationship with our GOD. HE made us for HIMSELF, that we may be vessels of HIS Image and Power here on earth. As HIS people, we should live intentionally in communion with HIM. This relationship brings about a genuine obedience of love. All the while, HE purges and molds us into CHRIST-like character. HE speaks to us, giving us promises and purpose with some Instructions…for HIS ultimate Destiny and Glory! 

 

Unfortunately, and sadly enough, we often forfeit GOD’s divine plan for our lives. “How is that?” you say.

 

Well, my fellow brothers and sisters, it’s because of a little something called “doubt” and “unbelief.The journey becomes too hard and too long, and we begin entertaining doubt, allowing the enemy to rob us of our true inheritance! Distractions come and we either sell out or compromise in some way, giving in to fear, which causes paralysis and stagnation. 

 

Another way we forfeit GOD’s plan is by not knowing our identity. We can be blinded and live in bondage to sin, self, and the world. Because we do not know what we should do, we easily give our possessions and giftings away, or we stop seeking and pursuing the deep things of GOD. What a sad situation! 

 

I recently received a TikTok video that portrayed this very concept! A man was walking down the street, when suddenly, someone came up from behind and demanded all of his possessions. The thief told the victim that his friend was holding a gun to his back. What the victim did not know is that the thief had placed a “dummy” with its arm extended, holding a banana, behind the victim (see picture below). The banana was pressing against the victim’s back…so that the victim thought that it was a gun! The thief told the man not to move—as he stole all of his possessions and then quickly left the victim, still standing with his hands raised, with the banana sticking in his back.

A few seconds later, a passerby came along and asked the victim, “What are you doing?” The victim replied, “I’m being robbed!” The passerby then proceeded to tell him, “Turn around; it’s a dummy!”

 

We are most often fooled by smoke and mirrors! It’s a lie and deception. GOD has given us ALL authority to exercise here in our domain—EARTH!  That’s why it’s so important to walk vigilantly, awake and armed with GOD’s WORD, so that we will not be easily tricked!

 

DON’T BE ROBBED!  Heed this warning and exhortation! 

 

Here are some practical ways you can be sure not to be ensnared with any kind of deception.

  1. Surrender to the LORD JESUS CHRIST. Confess HIM daily. HE is on the Throne! HE should be your measure, your treasure, and your authority. Yield to the HOLY SPIRIT.
  2. Be in communication with HIM.  Through prayer and reading HIS WORD, you will know HIS written Voice. Build up equity in the prayer closet/altar. Learn HIS Voice. Seek HIM.
  3. Believe HE is who HE says HE is. Therefore, you will know who you are. Obey HIS instructions and operate to honor HIM in all you do. HE is not looking for perfection; HE is looking for genuine affection and devotion from you—in thought and deed. HE sees your heart. 
  4. Get into a community in which you can learn, serve, and be accountable. Be under mentors and people more seasoned than you and partake in mentoring others alike.
  5. Practice faith under pressure and persevere above all challenges and circumstances. 
  6. Be patient and praise in the “waiting.” Do not complain, and in everything, give thanks! 
  7. Use your words to bless and not curse. Be prepared to give an account of the hope that is in you. Testify! You are a sign and a wonder. Be encouraged!
