Have you been tested by fire?
What are the claims which are being made against you?
Can you stand the test of ridicule?
Can you stand the test of intimidation?
Can you stand the test of discouragement?
The enemy of God’s children has come to kill, steal and destroy you. Jesus came that you might have life and have it more abundantly. Discouragement is the enemy’s biggest tool for the followers of Christ.
The enemy wants you discouraged so that you are not praising and blessing the Lord. The enemy does not want you healed. The enemy wants you sick. The enemy wants you complaining and living in defeat. The author of fear and discouragement is the devil. He is real and wants to take you out.
The enemy works in your soul which is your mind, feelings, emotions and will. The “Good News” is that Jesus Christ defeated the works of the enemy. Know that greater is HE “the Spirit of God” who is living in you. The enemy is trying to get you away from praising and worshipping the Lord Jesus Christ.
11 For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is [already] laid, which is Jesus Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One).
12 But if anyone builds upon the Foundation, whether it be with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw,
13 The work of each [one] will become [plainly, openly] known (shown for what it is); for the day [of Christ] will disclose and declare it, because it will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test and critically appraise the character and worth of the work each person has done.
14 If the work which any person has built on this Foundation [any product of his efforts whatever] survives [this test], he will get his reward.
15 But if any person’s work is burned up [under the test], he will suffer the loss [of it all, losing his reward], though he himself will be saved, but only as [one who has passed] through fire. 1 Corinthians 3:11-15 AMP
The antidote for discouragement, ridicule and intimidation is always worship and praise to the Lord. God is always bigger than the problem, circumstance and situation. Jesus Christ is in the deliverance business. HE will deliver you through the fire. HE will be with you in the midst of the fire. HIS promises are true. HE is faithful. Never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever give up.
