“There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus … for the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.” (Romans 8:1-2).
Again, I speak to you: You must know the power of the enemy; you must learn his tactics and his ability to cripple instantaneously. I have taught you much, yet I am teaching you more now.
Do not underestimate his power and his drive. You are targeted. He will fight you on every front to discourage you and to get you to doubt My Spirit in you. Now, more than ever, you must not question who you are in Me, and Who I am in you. You must not question what you have heard from Me.
Know this: if you wonder where I am or why you are allowed to feel so comfortless at times, it is because of My love for you. I am strengthening your inner man in ways you have never imagined. “I pray that out of His glorious riches He may strengthen you with power through His Spirit in your inner being.” (Ephesians 3:16, NIV). I am teaching you to discern the enemy’s voice, his presence, and his deception immediately, so you, in turn, will refute his tactics.
This is not a time to second-guess what I have taught you. You may not be fully aware of the comfort I bring, but I will assure you of My presence. It may come unexpectedly through the phone call of a believer or the smile of one who can be trusted. Take these to heart; they are My signposts along the way.
