“A Bigger Reason Why”

Thought for Today: A Bigger Reason Why

There are so many promises that God has made to those who have accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior. And so many were taught that the devil just doesn’t want you to have the promises of God simply because the enemy does not want you to have the things of the kingdom of God.  

There is a bigger reason why the enemy does not want you to know that God is the one that gives you the power to get wealth, as seen in Deuteronomy 8:18.  

There is a bigger reason why the enemy does not want you to know that God has given you power over all the power of the enemy and nothing by any means shall hurt you (Luke 10:19). 

There is a bigger reason why the enemy does not want you to know about the “peace that surpasses all understanding that shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:7). 

There is a bigger reason why the enemy of your soul does not want you to know that “the things Jesus did that you will do also, and greater things will you do because Jesus ascended to the Father” (John 14:12).

There is a bigger reason why the enemy does not want you to know that “God will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go and God will guide thee with his eye” (Psalm 32:8). 

There is a bigger reason why the enemy does not want you to know “No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord” (Isaiah 54:17).  

There is a bigger reason why the enemy does not want you to know that God said He will “bless them that bless you and curse them that curse you” (Genesis 12:3). 

It’s not just that the enemy of your soul just doesn’t want you to have the things of the kingdom of God or the promises of God in and for your life; It’s so much bigger than that.  

The devil does not want you to know all the promises of God because of this one truth.  The truth of the matter is that the enemy knows that God will not leave you until He does what He says He is going to do.  

And so, if you take God at His word, it does not matter when, how, who, where, or what God chooses to do, you know that God will always be with you because God is not man that He should lie. And the promises of God are yea and Amen.  

It’s not just because the devil doesn’t want you to have joy, peace, grace, mercy, love, prosperity, or any of the things of the kingdom of God. But the enemy knows that if God said He was going to do anything in and for your life, He will not stop until what He said manifests in your life. 

For it is written, “‘And behold. I am with thee and will keep thee in all places whither thou goest and will bring thee again into this land; FOR I WILL NOT LEAVE THEE, UNTIL I HAVE DONE THAT WHICH I HAVE SPOKEN TO THEE OF’ And Jacob awoke out of his sleep and said ‘Surely the LORD is in this place and I knew it not’” (Genesis 28:15). 

The bigger reason why the enemy does not want you to know the promises of God is simply that when you hold on to the promises of God you are holding on to God Himself, simply because you cannot separate God and His promises, they are all one and the same. 

Hold on to God today and Be Blessed
