How’s your hearing?

In Part 7 of The Necessity of an Enemy, Ron Carpenter Jr. offers some final tips on winning the battle with the enemy.  Discussing Matthew’s account of Peter walking on water to meet Jesus, Pastor Carpenter notes that Jesus’ spoken word to Peter sustained his walk on the water.  Peter only got that sinking feeling when he saw the wind and the waves and realized that what he saw contradicted what he had heard.

The author then extends his thoughts to the present: “Right now . . . you may be at a point in your career, your marriage, your finances, or another area of your life where it feels as if an enemy is destroying you.  If that’s your situation, I have great news for you: the presence of an enemy is telling you how available you future and calling still are!”

That’s why it’s so vital for us to affirm what we hear in God’s Word and what we possess through our faith in Jesus.

Romans 10:17- “So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.”

  • After reading this last meditation, I can’t help but say to myself….”keep the faith baby”… maybe a little trite and overused, but that is the only way to gain freedom from our demons that plague and taunt us. And, as long as we can do it, even in our darkest moments when we really feel so isolated from the Father He will let us know that we aren’t alone, He will always walk with us.
