Now is a time for clarity and focus in the Spirit. Now is a time for clarity and focus of mind.
The enemy of our souls is using the demonic time-honored strategy of confusion and obscurity. The strategy is quite simple. Obscure the Truth with as much commotion and obfuscation of his real agenda as possible. This comes through the dissemination of lies, half-truths, misdirection and emotional turmoil. Consider this; he does not have to stop your quest for the Truth. All he has to do is merely send you to look for the truth in the wrong direction or searching for the wrong facts. Whether this concerns the issues of the world, politics or the use of spiritual gifts in the Church, the demonic strategy has been the same.
Remember admonition of the Word of God:
“For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.” – 1 Co 14:33 KJV
God will never obfuscate or confuse the issue(s). If you ask Him for wisdom, He will freely give it to you.
“If any of you is deficient in wisdom, let him ask of the giving God [Who gives] to everyone liberally and ungrudgingly, without reproaching or faultfinding, and it will be given him.” – Jas 1:5 AMPC
God will never lead you to anything less than the Truth. The issue for many people seems to be their inability to accept Truths that are beyond their ability to perceive things beyond natural facts.
For example: It may be a fact that you may be experiencing debt or poverty, but the Word of God says in Truth,
“Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.
I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.” – 3 Jn 1:2, 4 KJV
If the enemy of our souls can obscure the Truth concerning your health, your relationships, your finances and etc, he can cause you to become fearful. Through this demonic strategy, he can bring about confusion of thought and incorrect decisions. Whenever fear is present, it can be difficult to think clearly under pressure.
“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” – 2 Ti 1:7 KJV
God has made available to us the Dunamis (Explosive) Power of His Holy Spirit to overcome insurmountable odds. He gives us the supernatural empowerment to win when everything around us makes it seem like we should fail. He has given us the ability to love people and do the right things by them even when they may cause us pain. He gives us a sound mind. The sound mind that He gives us is the ability to remain calm and remain in the place of peace even when it doesn’t make sense to do so. As we keep our focus upon Jesus and as we keep our mind upon Him, we will remain at peace.
“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength:” – Isa 26:3-4 KJV
Do not allow the enemy to turn your focus towards the distractions, but rather focus on the Truths of God. Stay calm and allow Him to show you a way that perhaps you have not considered.
Our prayer for you is that the wind of the Holy Spirit will blow away the smoke of confusion, mistruths and emotional upheavals. Our prayer is that the Holy Spirit will lead and guide you into all Truth. We do not declare man’s version of truth, but Truth only as can be given by the One and True Living God!
May God’s Grace Abundantly Reign In Your Life!
