The Righteous Have But One Strategy (The Power of Staying)



I was listening to a preacher give a message about how the enemy uses strategies to get to us and it made me think. The righteous have and always will have only but one strategy.  The wicked detest the righteous because of this.  The wicked have many many multiple strategies and craftiness to get their way, but the righteous only have but one way and they find much much more success than the wicked.  Look at the enemy and Eve as they talk.  The enemy made the woman keep her eyes off of obedience to God which was her salvation, and instead on the multiple features of life she received from obedience (eating from the trees, whether she will live or die, general knowledge).  Now, understand that the righteous only have but one strategy, they trust in the name of the Lord, Jesus.  And then they keep trusting.  And then they keep trusting . In trust, they obey, worship, and praise the Lord and they find incredible life and success in every area of their lives and their generations for generation after generation and they are blessed because of their trust in the Lord Jesus Christ alone.  Do not sell out your strategy for the multiple useless strategies of the enemy.  Do not move off of this wall.   The enemy knows the value of this, your one strategy and he wants to entice you to get off of that one strategy and the moment you recognize this, just keep trusting, keep believing, keep on the same wall you have always been on and be more confident than ever before in the name, the only name of Jesus Christ.

In God we trust.  And this is the very thing that the enemy wants to take away from the United States, because if he can take this away from the United States there is nothing that the US can do to defend themselves from the enemy.  We must be aware of this;  The righteous on have one strategy: In God we Trust.  Don't move from this wall.

Psalm 20:1
May the Lord answer you in the day of trouble!
    May the name of the God of Jacob protect you!
2 May he send you help from the sanctuary
    and give you support from Zion!
3 May he remember all your offerings
    and regard with favor your burnt sacrifices! Selah
4 May he grant you your heart's desire
    and fulfill all your plans!
5 May we shout for joy over your salvation,
    and in the name of our God set up our banners!
May the Lord fulfill all your petitions!
6 Now I know that the Lord saves his anointed;
    he will answer him from his holy heaven
    with the saving might of his right hand.
7 Some trust in chariots and some in horses,
    but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.
8 They collapse and fall,
    but we rise and stand upright.
9 O Lord, save the king!
    May he answer us when we call.




If you'd like to accept Jesus into your life today, pray this simple prayer of God's love and grace today: Lord Jesus, I thank you for dying for all my sin; now Lord I invite you into my heart. Come and be my everything today and forever. Forgive my sin as I make You and you alone Lord in my life. Amen. Now read the book of God's love in the Bible: The book of John chapters 1-21. God promises He will guide your life. Pray and ask God to bring the right people into your life. God will guide you to the right church full of people who love His words in the Bible. Our God is so faithful. God bless you today.
