Nehemiah 4:11-15 (NASB) “Our enemies said, "They will not know or see until we come among them, kill them and put a stop to the work." 12When the Jews who lived near them came and told us ten times, "They will come up against us from every place where you may turn," 13then I stationed men in the lowest parts of the space behind the wall, the exposed places, and I stationed the people in families with their swords, spears and bows. 14When I saw their fear, I rose and spoke to the nobles, the officials and the rest of the people: "Do not be afraid of them; remember the Lord who is great and awesome, and fight for your brothers, your sons, your daughters, your wives and your houses." 15When our enemies heard that it was known to us, and that God had frustrated their plan, then all of us returned to the wall, each one to his work.”
Beloved it is true that the enemy comes to kill steal and destroy but the greater truth and promise is that I have come so that you can have super-abundant and over-exceeding life. In this hour you must gain understanding into the realm of the spirit. You must develop a sensitivity and a keen understanding of what God is calling you to see and hear. You must be able to rightly divide all of the information that is coming at you and will propel you and advance the Kingdom. I Am releasing a sound and strategy that will cause you to see the deception, anger, fear and doubt. You are being given eyes to see how the enemy is seeking to derail, destroy and decay the promise in you. You will be able to see and recognize your enemy along your path as you advance. When you walk in this divine eye-sight you gain divine insight into the forces seeking to come against you and you are able to analyze correctly and separate out what is not of God. You will then be able to determine how and if to progress and proceed based upon that information you are discerning. When you walk in vital union and communion with Me it becomes your first nature to recognize My voice and My leading because My sheep know My voice and the voice of another they will not follow. Again I say, see your enemy correctly because you have been called to fulfill My purpose. Therefore, you must be resilient and strong, you must stand the test of time and endure the refining and testing without weakening in your resolve and determination to see My will fulfilled in the earth through you. I have given you eyes to see; advance now without fear but in greater determination. When you see your enemy correctly you are able to use the weapons that I have given you to war, to pursue, to overtake and to recover all, says the Lord.
