ROLL UP YOUR SLEEVES AND GET BACK TO WORK

February 11, 2022

This blog is for those who feel hopeless, have become weary, and feel like giving up. I want to encourage you as we proceed in 2022. I want to share with you that which the Holy Spirit has impressed into my spirit for you and me.

It is crucial that when we pray, we pray according to the Word. The Word informs us that this world in which we live will get more tumultuous as the time of the rapture draws nigh; therefore, our prayers should focus on the strength believers need to work and stand amid chaos, confusion, and division. Also, the mind of Christ is required to direct our prayers for God’s will to be done on the earth.

Like most of you, I want trouble to cease; however, that is not to be. My assurance and consolation amid all that is happening is God is with me. With His abiding presence in my life, I cast aside the Spirit of Fear and Lethargy, roll up my sleeves and do the work God has for me.

When God created Adam and placed him in the Garden in Eden, He spoke these words to him, “Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth” God knew the enemy was lurking in the garden. He knew his plan for the occupants, so he instructed them to subdue and have dominion. These are action words that require humans to do something. They were not supposed to accept the deceptive words of those around them but rather defeat, conquer, extinguish, get the better of, overpower, be in charge, and govern with sovereign authority.

From reading the Bible, we know Adam and Eve forfeited their place, thusly allowing Satan to seize control. The good news is that Jesus came and redeemed us, and He gave us power over our enemies. Daily we must enter into warfare, fighting sometimes and resisting others times, for the enemy is relentless in his plan of destruction for us. Furthermore, he uses all kinds of people and methods to accomplish his goal; however, we must declare, like Paul in 2 Corinthians 2:11, “Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.” So, roll up your sleeves and get back to work defeating the enemy.
