As I was reading Isaiah 22:1-14, the Lord started talking to me about where we are as a body of believers in regards to destruction in our physical bodies. It’s important to understand that we are under physical attack. The enemy will do what he can to prevent our bodies from performing at optimal levels. As this happens, he has found a way to break down our military forces as the body of Christ.
We have to be strong in spirit, soul, and body if we want to win this battle. And who wants to fight back when they have no energy or oomph to do so?
One major way the enemy sneaks in without us recognizing is in our goods. We’re opening ourselves up to sickness when we choose to ingest those processed and chemical laden foods. This gives him a legal right to invade our bodies. It opens the door for him to walk right in and dine with us at our own table, serve his garbage and call it nutritious?
It’s time we educate ourselves on the truths that are displayed clearly in the word of God and stop looking at sickness and disease as something we’re stuck with as we age. It’s not anything I ever plan to own. On the other hand, we’re responsible for what we know. It you are filling your shopping cart and plate with foods that lead to sickness and disease, then the likelihood of you living a life of health and vitality is not great.
What did God say to me in Isaiah 22?
We are running around as broken people, as if we don’t know what to do. There are so many that see this physical attack on the body for what it is, but there is no strategic plan in place to cancel the plans of the enemy. Then there are those who believe what they want to, only because it’s easier to just live in their comfort zone.
What do we get when we choose to do nothing or refuse to change? We make it easy on the enemy. He doesn’t have to worry about us putting up a spiritual battle because he has already won the battle in our physical bodies. So we end up lying on the battlefield plagued by disease. We surrender without resistance because we feel it’s just too much to carry on.
My heart breaks, along with the Fathers, as I watch the lives of many around me being destroyed so easily. I can’t help but notice those who are sick in their bodies. I cry out to God and ask Him to help His people, and He gently reminds me that He has given us that task.
There are so many around us who don’t understand the physical attack the body is under. So for those of us who do, it’s our job to expose the lies of the enemy.
It’s time to get serious and look to the Father for help. But we must also take authority in who He’s called us to be. If you’re a child of God, you have the power to stand up and win this batter. The word tells us that the greater one lives in us.
It will take a change in our current lifestyles, yes. It will take action on our part to help ourselves as well as assist those around us. Is your feasting today worth dying in pain and agony tomorrow? That is something we all must ask ourselves.
