GOD's Promise To You

There is a promise in Genesis from God to Abraham that comes right back to you. One that we can take and use against our enemy, whatever that enemy might be.

Gen. 22 v 16-17.... "By Myself I have sworn, says the LORD, because you have done this thing, and have not withheld your son, your only son; blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply your descendants as the stars of the heaven and as the sand which is on the seashore; and your descendants shall possess the gate of their enemies......

First, God swore on Himself, this promise. In other words, He said I tell you the truth, this is a fact, write it down and meditate on it, I do not lie. He told Abraham, since he was so faithful to do what He had told him to do, to sacrifice his only son, that He would increase his descendants. In other words you are a descendant of Abraham, you are like a grain of sand. So even as insignificant as you may feel about yourself, you feel like you are nothing more than a tiny grain of sand, but you are still counted in this promise. The promise being that you shall possess the gate of your enemy. In other words, any sickness, disease, sin that might be trying to attack you is an enemy, and the LORD says that you shall possess the gate of your enemy. In other words you have VICTORY over that enemy. AMEN!

Remember who you are. You are a child of God, which makes you a descendant of Abraham, which means that you have the promise that God told Abraham all the way back in the beginning that even his descendants shall possess the gates of their enemies.
So whatever is trying to come against you, It is an enemy. Remember God says, no weapon formed against you shall prosper. It might try to form, and it may even form, but GOD HIMSELF says, IT SHALL NOT PROSPER!! AMEN!

ISA 54 v 17...."No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in judgment you shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is from ME," says the LORD.....

That pretty much sums it up. Now you just have to receive that promise with faith, just like Abraham when God told him to sacrifice his only son. He knew GOD would provide the sacrifice and it would not be his son, because God had already promised him that from his son would come many nations of people. AMEN!

Quit trying to fight your enemy and KNOW that you have already won the battle. GOD HIMSELF SWORE IT TO YOU. AMEN!
