Gold or Gold Plated?
As we continue our training on Spiritual warfare, know that the enemy will send "weapons" to fight against us. These weapons are designed to fight against our health, prosperity, family, marriage, singleness, even our ministries.
Demonic weapons are not created just to stop us from pursing God, but they also come to hinder, stop, block, and try to cause us to stumble.
Everything that glitters is not gold, and every "blessing" is not from the Lord - demons can cause us "prosper" too all for the sake of furthering their version of a perverted "gospel". These weapons can be sent in the form of people, opportunities that look like it will do us good, but are specifically and solely designed to cut us off from the path God has called us to walk. They are like "Trojan horses" , beautiful on the outside but what it "carries" is deadly to our purpose. If not for the grace of God, we'd all fall for countless demonic trick sand stay outside of the blessings of the Lord.
But our Father, has not left us defenseless!! He has given us a weapon designed to detect and defeat deception - its called Discerning of Spirits. This is one of the many expressions of God, the Holy Spirit, supernaturally working through our five natural senses to detect deceit and more.
Allow the Lord to lead and guide you in this manner, we will make mistakes, but the Lord can recover and we get up!! and learn from it!.
Blessings to you and yours, see you in class!
