Strategic Warfare that Turns the Battle -#5 No Fear!
5. No Fear! Don’t let the enemy intimidate you. God is not with the enemy, He is with you; therefore, the enemy is already on a path where he will stumble into his own destruction.
Don’t panic, rather, consider what you are good at and what you have confidence in and focus on that. When you demonstrate confidence, it creates fear in the enemy. The more the enemy becomes paranoid, the more he will plot and scheme to try to do something even more foolish, but it will be his paranoia that will eventually trip him up and cause the enemy to be brought to justice. #refusetobeintimidated
Dear Lord Jesus,
Ride into battle and create fear in the enemy camp. Give those that are on the enemy’s side troubling dreams. Show them, like you did to the Midianites in Gideon’s day, a dream of their opponents defeating them. Show them that You are not on their side fighting ungodly battles with them. Show the enemy that You have delivered them into the hands of Your servants and that there is no way they can win. Demoralize the enemy and cause them to lose hope in their ungodly leader(s). Let them lose hope in themselves and know that they cannot defeat those that have the King of Kings fighting on their behalf. Turn their hearts and loyalties to come over to the Lord’s side, and to act courageous in taking a stand for righteousness. Compel them to do whatever you tell them to do. Let them see themselves surrounded by those they consider their enemies and know they are already conquered. Open the eyes of Your servants to see in faith those that are on the Lord's side are more than those with the enemy. Give us eyes to see angels in our midst so that our fears are silenced. In Jesus name, amen.
“And when Gideon had come, there was a man telling a dream to his companion. He said, “I have had a dream: To my surprise, a loaf of barley bread tumbled into the camp of Midian; it came to a tent and struck it so that it fell and overturned, and the tent collapsed. Then his companion answered and said, “This is nothing else but the sword of Gideon the son of Joash, a man of Israel! Into his hand God has delivered Midian and the whole camp.” Judges 7:13-14 NKJV
“The king's heart is in the hand of the LORD, as the rivers of water: he turneth it whithersoever he will.” Prov. 21:1 KJV
