"We are more than conquerors through Him who loved us" Romans 8:37
Last night I had the opportunity to lead a Bible study at our place, looking at a few stories from 2 Kings, Exodus, and Matthew. Specifically we we're looking at different times in the Bible when God was about to raise up a leader and begin a new Spiritual work. It was interesting to me to see in Moses, Joash, and Jesus how during their infancy there was a massive undertaking to murder all the male children. To me it's obvious that the Devil was stirring up these people to murder these children to try and stop the work God was going to do through them.
We're a new church, still in its infancy really, and the enemy would like to destroy us from the very beginning. But thank God we have a intercessor, "greater is He who is within you, then He who is within the world." 1 John 4:4
In Moses' time, Joash and Jesus there was an attempt to kill them in their infancy, but God prevailed and rescued these children and they grew up to be leaders for the people of God. We have victory and confidence that what ever the enemy throws at us we will stand in the Lord and the power of His might.
We stand in the victory Christ accomplished at the cross.
"(Jesus) having wiped out the handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross. Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it." Colossians 2:14-15
We have been soaring on the prayers of the saints, for us and this church. Any opposition we have faced so far has been really easily overcome, and I know that is because of your prayers. Please continue to pray for us that God would continue to protect us and guide us and give us favor in this city.
