One of the awesome things about valley experiences is that the devil uses all of his weapons on you when you are in the Valley. Every trick in the book that he has, he pulls it out in a desperate attempt to destroy you. And when you allow God to carry you through those valley experiences, you will have learned every trick that the devil can use. This is dangerous to his kingdom. Because when you have been delivered from his tactics, you can come running back to tell others who is traveling through that same valley, “Look, the devil is going to try to do this. He’s going to try to do that. And this is what you have to do so that he won’t kill you. This is how I made it through the valley. If it worked for me, it will work for you too.” God wants to bring you through all of the valleys in your life. And when you get on the other side of the valley and look back, you will understand why you had to go through some of the things that you are going through right now. All of the suffering that we endure on this earth is not always about something we have done. A lot of times we go through things because God wants to prepare some Moses and some Joshua’s. He wants to raise up some people who will go back and free some slaves who are still stuck in Egypt. And when God has a calling on your life, the devil will always rear his ugly little head. Expect it. But also know that he has no power over you. He has limited power over your material possessions. And he only has that power until God says enough.
Ephesians 6:12 - For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
The devil has no power. The only trick that he has is deception. He knows what God has in store for you and he is trying the best he can to throw a monkey wrench in God’s operation to keep you from walking into your destiny. The devil knows the bible better than most saints could ever dream of knowing it. And therefore the bible says that God’s people perish due to lack of knowledge. Lack of knowledge of what his word says. You need to get into the word and learn how to fight the devil. Learn how to smile at satan’s rage. And you better believe his is very raged! Do you know who your are in God? The devil knows. That’s the only reason he is coming at you like he is coming at you. Because he knows that if he EVER lets you get to the point where you tell him to “Hit me with your best shot, because God’s got my back,” he knows he has messed up. When you know who you are in God and start using the power that God has given to you to stomp on the devils head, you are a threat to his kingdom.
Do you know how to fight the devil? You fight him with the word of God. Don’t just think about the word of God. You need to SPEAK it out of your mouth so the devil can hear you. The word becomes flesh. You shall have whatsoever you say. Don’t commit pre-meditated murder. Speak what God has to say about your life. God’s word will stand by itself. All you need to do is STAND FIRM on it. When you stand on God’s word, you will be like a tree planted by the rivers of water that bringeth forth fruit in your season; your leaf will not wither; and whatsoever you do shall prosper.
For everything there is a season. If it seems like you are going through hells fire right now, this may be your season of purging…your season of preparation for the work that God wants to do in you. So don’t be so quick to ask God to remove the mountain. That’s how a lot of us miss out on our blessings. We abort the purification process. And until you have been purified, God can’t use you. Until you have been broken in spirit, humbled, God can’t use you. Don’t faint.
Galatians 6:9 - And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
The devil wants you to believe that you will never be anything. He wants you to believe that things won’t get better for you. He wants you to go back to doing those things that God has delivered you from. And he will try to get to you by any means necessary. But as long as you stand girded with the word of God, he will strengthen you for the battle. He will subdue under you those that rise up against you. He will make your enemy your footstool…
When the devil tells you that you will never be anything, you speak to him out of your mouth and say, “ I am more than a conqueror through Christ Jesus.”
When the devil is hitting you with everything he’s got, you speak to him and say “Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him and with all of my appointed time, I’m going to wait until my change comes:”
When the devil tries to make you thinks things are not going to get better, you speak to him and say, “This sickness is not until death—but that God may be glorified.”
God is going to get some glory out of this. And the same people who have put you down…. The same people who said you would never amount to anything will be coming to you asking how they can get to know your God. Your job is to pray for them and lift up Jesus. He will take care of the rest.
The best is yet to come! Just hold on. Stand Still and see the salvation of the Lord. He is God. He is God all by himself. And he will bless you with ten times more than what the devil tried to steal from you. The devil has just been exposed for the liar that he is. Now that he has been exposed, he has no power---unless you GIVE it to him.
