“Stay Behind the Force Field” by Dr.J.

It doesn’t faze me if anyone “comes for” me or my child. When those who are “coming” arrive, God and His angels have already created a force field around us. Our natural opponents can’t see the Force Field so they keep coming. They can’t figure out why they can’t get to us. They hurl attacks, slick comments, disrespect, and even conspiracies and they can’t figure out why the weapons won’t prosper. This Force Field can’t be penetrated.

See some of us peer out from behind our force field and see people on the outside cussing at us, not teaching our children in the classroom, being unfair to us or our family, trying to get over on us, stealing from us, talking about us, conspiring against us on the job, trying to intrude in our relationships and our marriages, and innumerable other attacks. The enemy plants seeds of anxiety and even discord in us. We start to think, I‘m not weak. I don’t have to take this. And then you, from inside the force field, allow those thoughts to penetrate your heart and you step outside the boundaries of the force field to go after your natural opponents. Huh? You came out of the safety and protection of the force field to act in the flesh and get your “natural” opponents back? Pride. See the devil and his demons can see the shield but they know there is a chance in our flesh that we may step from behind the shield and that’s when he can get us- in our flesh. That’s when we become vulnerable – in our flesh. If we could only remember, our weapons are always spiritual and never carnal. Never.

Yesterday, a grown man at a three way stop ‘shot a bird’ at me and Jaylen. I didn’t see it. Jay quickly turned his body around and then quickly faced forward again. I looked in the rear view to see what Jay saw. The man shot a bird at me too. I looked forward. I asked Jay, ‘Did he “shoot a bird at you?” Jay replied, ‘Yea.’ I said, ‘Jay that man is being used by the devil.’ He said, ‘I know mama, that’s why I just turned back around and didn’t do anything back to him.’

That was a victory over our flesh. Both of us literally had to “die to flesh” in that moment. Now we may not win every battle but the victory is so sweet, knowing that Jesus’s example was seen in us. See, through the power of the Holy Spirit (I can’t do it by myself), I’m trying to teach my son that God is our Vindicator. We can never repay evil for evil, no matter how severe the natural circumstances appear. We don’t ever need to come from behind the Force Field. We have to stay in the Spirit. God doesn’t need us to fight these petty battles for Him; He’s too big to need our assistance. If He tells us to fight, it certainly won’t be in our flesh.

Keep coming Satan and his helpers, and you’ll keep bouncing back off us because we’re protected with a Force Field so strong that nothing you do, no matter who you use shall prosper. Dr.J.

It’s Fasting Season (Post 6): Be Sensitive to the Holy Spirit by Dr.J.

“Fasting keeps you sensitive to His Spirit, enabling You to live Holy.” -Jentzen Franklin

The Holy Spirit has something to say to you during this fast, things you haven’t been able to hear Him say because of all the noise of the world, the chatter of sin, and the commotion of self-gratification. But now as you suppress your physical desires, God can unleash His spiritual desires for you through His Spirit. You’ve had questions about what to do about a situation. You’ve been struggling with people being used against you. You’ve dealt with the emotional impact of being abandoned. Your finances are not enough to make ends meet. The enemy is trying to destroy your relationship or he has already. God says continue to sacrifice for intimacy with Him and read His Word and listen. Listen.

In addition, in order to truly hear the Holy Spirit, you must live holy. Holy means “set apart.” You can’t do any and everything during your fast and live a life that is different from the world at the same time. When you fast, you are so in tune with the Holy Spirit that the Spirit can whisper and you can hear Him and turn from the evil you were about to commit. But when you sin, the Holy Spirit can’t communicate with you because sin distorts your hearing and severs your relationship. Sin separates and deafens you too. Not living Holy while fasting is just, well, a diet. Be sensitive to the Holy Spirit so that you can make the most out of your sacrifice for God. Dr.J.
