“You prepare a feast for me in the presence of my enemies.” Psalm 23:5
One of the hidden truth’s of the Bible is that the enemy knows that God has provided everything.
Every blessing of God, every treasure of God, every pleasure of God freely given to us has been lavished upon us in the presence of our enemy. The enemy is fully aware of the measure of all God’s love and grace.
The enemy will try everything in his power, use all his influence, lie, deceive and manipulate to stop you from enjoying and living in the provision God has made for you.
Just take a glance at the Garden of Eden, where is the midst of infinite pleasure and provision, the enemy deceived Adam & Eve into believing that God would be pleased with them by doing something that would make them accepted when they were already accepted. His message has not changed, he sneaks around trying to make us do things to please God, when we’re already the delight of God’s heart.
The enemies subtle whisper is that God is holding out on us, that we have to plead with God to get the full measure of his glory has been so embedded into our minds that we have become suspicious of believing that God has poured out into our hearts the completeness of heaven.
The truth of the finished work of Christ is magnificent and wonderful that the nature and acts of God are now imparted into our hearts for the King of heaven to manifest himself through us in all we are and all we do. His grace revealed in his love is the full provision of the victory of the cross, bringing forgiveness, health, wholeness, joy, peace and reconciliation.
The enemy knows the truth and wants to deceive you into settling for less when you already have it all.
Today, put on the finished work of Christ, live in his glory revealed in Christ and deposited into your heart. Be rooted and grounded in the unconditional love of God and let the power of Christ shine out of your life. Take hold and be all God has called you to be, for that is the best way you resist the devil as you take hold and rest in the infinite grace of his love.
