The Chariots of fire have given us the Courage

Lately the fury of the enemy has come against me in ever increasing waves of a troublesome disruptive nature against my health.  At first I was unaware of the demonic sprit behind this asthma like symptoms and stomach cramps.  But in the goodness of time and favour of the Lord my spiritual discernment began to registrar; enemy ahead.  This has led me into a battle with the Ephesians 6:12 principalities, powers, rulers of darkness and spiritual wickedness in high places.

As my discernment has become sharpened I believe that I can understand the enemies plans of disruption, inconvenience and trouble making so that we fail to hear the voice of the Holy Spirit and sense the Lords presence.  The darts of the wicked one are probing our defences seeking a weak spot in our armour.  The enemy cannot overwhelm those who are washed and sprinkled with the blood of Jesus, but he does and will harass those who poke the sword of the spirit at him.

The strategy the Lord has given me is to stand firm and bold in the written word, clinging to the cross claiming our righteousness in Christ.  At the same time, wielding our sword of binding, rebuking and casting out of the strongman, and his cohorts into utter darkness.

As I was praying concerning this post the Lord said to me, Burn, Burn, Burn I am surrounding you with my chariots of fire as a ring around you.  My fire will burn up the lies, the falsehoods, the imaginations and strongholds of the enemy.  The warmth of my fire will surround you and your loved ones and you will feel the warmth of my love and holiness.  Open your eyes and look toward me and you will see the wall of fire around you.

And Elisha prayed, “Open his eyes, LORD, so that he may see.” Then the LORD opened the servant’s eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.  2 Kings 6:17

Father my prayer is that everyone who reads the posting will have the eyes of their spirit opened by the grace of your love, that they may see the chariots of fire around them which will follow them wherever they go, their coming out and their going in.  I decree and declare this to be so in the wonderful and glorious name of Jesus.

O my believers strengthen your weak knees and feeble arms and take up the sword of the spirit, lift high your shield and stand strong in the glorious truth that the Lords chariots of fire are encamped around you and your loved ones; for we are over comers.  Drink of the waters of life, power, and victory and feed on the breads of authority found on the risen Christ’s banquet table set before us in the presence of our enemies.

John I am sorry to hear that you have been unwell . At least you know that you are thwarting the work of the evil one when he has his eye on you to attack you. means you are doing something great for the Kingdom.

Let us rejoice together for He who is in us is greater than he who is in the world.

I agree! I have often thought of that passage of scripture you quoted when I have been facing adversity.
