You are Walking in the Valley of Decision
I know you! You are My creation! My word declares My decrees upon man and his destiny. “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked; who can know it? I, the LORD, search the heart, I test the mind, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings” (Jeremiah 17:9 -10). The truth (My word) will set you free from error. Recognize the battle that is before you…God vs. Satan, Good vs. Evil, Light vs. Darkness, and Truth vs. Error; the battle for your eternal soul is going on all around you. You cannot escape the choice set before you: you will choose a master over you before you complete your earthly life. Your choice will determine blessings or cursing. There is no way around this choice! You will reap blessings or cursing according to whom you choose as Lord of your life (God, your flesh, riches, Satan). “Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, and whose hope is the LORD” (Jeremiah 17:7). “Thus says the LORD: ‘Cursed is the man who trusts in man and makes flesh his strength, whose heart departs from the LORD’” (Jeremiah 17:5).
My children, your choices are made clear by the kind of life you choose. The circumstances and tests set before you are often My doing, but the outcome is up to you. For perhaps the first time in your life you feel the quickening of events and a rush to a destination out of your control. Often it is as though you are a puppet and the strings are being pulled by unknown forces beyond your control. These forces will force your choices between good and evil. All of my children who have chosen my Lordship through placing their life in Christ have a “hiding place” in Me. You are secure! “You are my hiding place; You shall preserve me from trouble; You shall surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah” (Psalm 32:7). “The LORD also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble. And those who know Your name will put their trust in You; for You, LORD, have not forsaken those who seek You” (Psalms 9:9-10).
Man fell in the beginning through disobedience. You now are facing events that will force obedience or disobedience. Your choices will determine your destiny. My love for you is ever extended and I have given you a choice to live with Me now and throughout eternity. “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart” (Jeremiah 29:11-13).
It is not My will for you to be enslaved by Satan. You are more than conquerors through My life in you. Your eyes shall behold the fruit of your prayers. “Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.” (Ephesians 3:20-21). If you pray and believe, you will see miracles!
You are seeing the fulfillment of end-time prophesy. You need not fear for I have overcome the world. As you look at the things Satan is doing, I am awaiting your prayers to stop him and to bring his evil down upon his own kingdom. “For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world — our faith. Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?” (1 John 5:4-5).
I have not appointed you to wrath, but to obtain salvation and victory over Satan through the Lord Jesus Christ. Often you have not because you have not asked!!! I have given you power over all the power of the enemy. I have not raised you up to defeat but to give you miraculous victories. I know all about Satan’s works, but I shall laugh and hold his works in derision (to laugh in scorn) as My children ask for deliverance. “But You, O LORD, shall laugh at them; You shall have all the nations in derision. I will wait for you, O You his Strength, I will wait for You. For God is my defense; my merciful God shall come to meet me; God shall let me see my desire on my enemies” (Psalms 59:8-9).
