Who Do You Think You Are?

faith, testimony, lifestyle, teshuva

I know you may have encountered an “important” arrogant person before.  The moment they walk into a room they expect all the “commoners” to cringe and bow in greeting. I know that not all important people are arrogant, and all arrogant people are not really that “important”.

But there is something we need to learn from them (important arrogant people) when it comes to facing the enemy and dealing with life’s challenges. At our appearance darkness must cringe and flee.

As my husband shared with us recently I got thinking.

Most times when challenges come our way, they seem to ask, who do you think you are? The enemy wants to cause us to give up and submit to his authority.

When I was pregnant with our second boy the enemy gave my husband a picture of our child and me dying while I was putting to bed. In that dream, someone came with the news and on his first wake my husband opened his mouth right there in the hotel room, in the dead of the night and screamed “satan… you are maaaaaaaad!!!” And you all know a mad man’s words cannot be taken seriously, I am right here and our boy turns ten in September, hallelujah!!!

Do not sit still and watch the enemy trample on you and make a mockery of you when you have been given rule over him.

Sadly many believers have cringed at the enemy when he puts challenges before us, challenges that question our identity and authority, God’s authority that has been handed to you for your own use, to see if you know your authority as a child of The Most High God, and if you have the COURAGE to use it.

But of course we cannot be courageous enough to look the enemy in the face and exercise our authority over him when we do not really grasp the potency of whose we are and who we are.

Quietness in the face of a storm does not become a believer and it does not denote peace. When you keep quiet for the enemy and beg him to leave you alone, you only fan his ego and present yourself as an easy prey, but when you speak up and let him know that you know that you have authority over him he flees and thinks really hard before coming back at you.

You must:

Discover who you are, Read the whole book of Ephesians

Stay conscious of who you are because what you meditate on informs you behavior and reactions. Joshua 1:8

Declare who you are Proverbs 18:21

And exercise your authority over what ever it is that you are faced with.  Job 22:28

Lets take a cue from

David (He killed Goliath with his mouth before he used the sling)

Joshua and Caleb (Also called the giants in Canaan mere bread and they did “eat” them up and possessed the land.

Jesus (Started declaring His victory over death long before He was sentenced to death)

Was I able to get you thinking? Now seriously, who do you think you are?!

    Very heartfelt, as always. I’m sure your husband’s dream shook him, but of course that’s what it was meant to do, I’m sure. The very simple reminder, ‘You are the child of a King,’ always helps me focus when I’m feeling overwhelmed.

    ‘The one who knows you the most, and loves you the best’ works too.

    Thank you for your posts, they are always great.

    How right you are, Ugochi! I went through a season of horrible nightmares to the extent that I hated going to sleep! The reason was quite simple: I did not know and therefore could not exercise my right as a child of God. Thank God for his special grace by which the truth was revealed. The devil is a bully and until you stand up to him, he’ll keep taking your goods. I now know who I am and whose I am – a blood washed, Holy Spirit filled and empowered princess of the Most High God! Stay blessed!

    spot on in todays culture! I pray the saint Micheal prayer sometimes many times a day…it is an exorcism prayer asking St Michael the arc angel to help defend us in battle…because life IS a battle.

      Life is indeed a battle, and we must constantly ask God for His help in Jesus name!

    {Melinda} I SO, SO love this!! God has really been speaking to me about this issue lately. Satan has been coming after me hard lately. And I’ve finally found my courage. I’m rejecting the lies and more than that I am DOUBLING DOWN. Whatever He’s trying to keep me from doing, I’m going to be twice as determined to make it happen. I’m gonna make that mad man sorry he ever messed with this mama. 🙂
