A pickpocket robs someone so subtly, without them even realizing what happened. I’m sure you’ve seen the guy in the movies, who opens up his long black trench coat, revealing all his stolen goods. How many times have we opened doors, through our fears or wrong choices, and allowed Satan to rob us? He’s attracted to fear, the way metal is to a magnet. God, on the other hand, is attracted to, and works so beautifully in the realm of faith. I think Job said it best in Job 3:25. He said, “For the thing I greatly feared has come upon me, and what I dreaded has happened to me.” God is NOT a God of fear and dread, but of faith and all hope! III John 2 explains God’s heart for us. It says, “Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.” John 10:10 says God wants to give us abundant life. So why are we living like spiritual paupers, when we are children of The King? Are we putting up with way too much from Satan? This is not meant with any disrespect, but a lot of our situations have come upon us because of our ignorance of God’s Word and His wonderful nature. The sure way to dispel and dissolve the dark tactics of the enemy is to pull out the arsenal of God’s word and believe it! Spend time praising and talking to, communicating with, your Commander-in-Chief. This brings soul prospering and FAITH ARISES, causing you to retrieve what is rightfully yours. Simply believe and retrieve! Allow your faith to be bigger than you fear. Take back what the enemy has stolen from you. Dare to be a Daniel or a David! Take your stance on the word and say, “GOD, I BELIEVE YOU!” It’s like a scenario, when a person taps someone on the shoulder and says, “Excuse me, but that belongs to me and I want it back.” Instead of the vicious dog, sensing your fear and attacking, close the door on him, and remain faith-filled, while walking in love and forgiveness with everyone, as God forgives us. Then, rest, while trusting God to resolve your dilemma in His perfect timing and in the very best way. Continue to build your faith, as… Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God; Romans 10:17.
