What To Do When You Are Attacked
What To Do When You Are Attacked
In John 16:33 (NKJV) Jesus said, “….In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” Below are a list of things you can do that will help you focus on the victory Jesus has already won and stay in faith until the storm has passed.
Identify the attacker; John 10:10 You must settle the issue that the root of this attack is from the devil. God does not put sickness, calamity, etc. on people . HE DELIVERS THEM OUT of those situations!
God is all good, the devil is all bad and they will never switch places!!!
Stay focused on the Lord, listening for the Holy Spirit’s direction
Psalm 46:10, Proverbs 3:,5,6, Isaiah 26;3
Cast all your care (worry) on the Lord; 1 Peter 5:7
Be aware of what you are thinking (think about what you are thinking about). Immediately cast down any thought that doesn’t agree with God’s Word; II Cor. 10:3-5
Be aware of the words you are speaking; don’t be moved by what you hear, see, or feel; only say what Gods says about your situation:
Life and death are in the power of the tongue. Proverbs 18:21
He that keeps his mouth preserves his life. Prov. 13:3
Be alert to what people around you are speaking into your life (this is not the time for Job’s comforters). Surround yourself with people of faith, who will comfort and encourage you. Hebrews 13:7
Don’t go to the world for counsel when you get a bad report. Go to the Holy Spirit, our great Counselor – the One who comforts and guides us into all the Truth. John 16:13
Don’t go to the internet or elsewhere to study the disease. Satan will use this to confuse you and he will have an avenue into your life to bring fear. God promises us that when we trust Him, He has benefits for us. There is no need to study the disease, because Jesus healed every one of our diseases and redeemed our lives from destruction on the Cross. Psalm 103:1-4
Find the promise in the Word that covers your situation. Meditate on this Word and speak it before Jesus, who is the High Priest of our confession; Hebrews 4:14. The Word of God is living and powerful and it has the power to bring itself to pass in any situation; Hebrews 4:12
Keep thanking God for your deliverance; Philippians 4:6. Thanksgiving has been described at the “cannon” of spiritual warfare.
Monitor your “love walk”. Faith works through love; Galatians 5:6. You can’t afford to become offended with anyone or have unforgiveness in your heart.
NEVER GIVE UP! There is an expiration date on every trial.
Let us not grow weary in well doing, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart; Galatians 6:9
Jesus always causes us to triumph!; II Corinthians 2:14
The strength to keeping going – especially when the trial does not end quickly – comes by trusting The Lord to do what He promised and then choosing to enter His rest; Hebrews 4:9-11
