WARNING! Proceed with caution! Let me be the first to tell you being a woman of God is not easy. You will be attacked because the enemy knows the power of walking in obedience. He knows how powerful God is. Trust and believe me, sis, you will be attacked.
Just the other day, my three-year-old told me she wanted a new mommy! My heart sank. My throat closed up and my eyes began to water. Was I having a heart attack? Nope! I just got attacked! Attacks come in different shapes and sizes. But, the important thing is how you handle those attacks. Because you are a woman of God and raising kingdom kids, you will be attacked, physically, mentally, emotionally, and even spiritually.
Women of God! You have such a calling and anointing on your life and the enemy knows that. He has been watching and observing you for a while. He knows exactly how to attack you. And for me, it was the words of my three-year-old.
The important thing is I knew how to detect the schemes of the devil. As soon as that attack came, I called him out on it. I said, devil, you are a liar. I encouraged myself in the Lord. I had to position myself! And that position was on my knees, in prayer, and in God's word! God has given us His word to stand on His promises and remind us how to handle every attack. You were made for this! God knows exactly what you can handle! You are equipped for this! We are to wear the armor of God daily!
My sister in Christ reminded me of this, “The attacks are part of the calling". The enemy is mad at you like never before. You will have to be on guard 24/7..cover your family..your body..your mind...you have now stepped into the enemy's camp and have declared war by interceding, breaking yokes, and declaring liberation over people's lives. You will now dream dreams, feel things. Don't get scared...pray..and declare God before EVERYTHING”. Amen!
It's time to buckle up! It’s time to pray, pray, and pray! Meditate on God’s word. Allow the word of God to resonate inside of you, so when the attacks come you can identify them and defeat them with God's truth.
“Be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power. Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places. Therefore, put on every piece of God’s armor so you will be able to resist the enemy in a time of evil. Then after the battle, you will still be standing firm.” Ephesians 6:10-13 NLT
