It’s not a fair fight, so just Kill the Spider already!
“Don’t be afraid,”
the prophet answered.
“Those who are with us are more than
those who are with them.”
-Elisha, 2 Kings 6:16
Do you need some encouragement to face your battles today? The story of these fireflies and spiders will change your whole perspective on the battles you are facing.
While you fold your laundry today, I’d sure love to join you. So if you don’t have the 9 minutes now, then remember me and my spider story when you fold!
(Warning… I’m speaking eerily quiet only because my babies were miraculously sleeping… not because I’m trying to weird you out. Ha!) : )
Game changing, eh? Want to study this more? Here’s what I reference:
Here’s that kick-butt devotional: “‘Kill the Spider’ by Carlos Whittaker.” I LOVE it! I ordered his book today, so I’m sure I’ll let you know more about it another day.
Here’s the full story of Elisha and his servant seeing the power of God on their side. Elisha. SHA. Elisha. ; ) 2 Kings 6:16
Here’s the Graham Cooke quote I referred to. Boom chakalaka. It’s paradigm shift powerful:
“There is a day of vengeance for all of us where we turn the tables on the enemy and we learn how to push him back. We learn how to overcome him and then we learn how to be more than a conqueror, which takes place when he realizes he cannot beat us and so there is no point of trying. He cannot afford the resources. He does not have the man power. One third of the angels fell and became demons so we still outnumber them two to one. And we have the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit, and we have one another. This is not a fair fight. This is a good fight; and, a good fight is one that you do not lose. Right? Because that would be a bad fight.
God calls us to a winnable war. He calls us to have a good fight. He gives us favor and vengeance where we come into a place of favor and God gives us the capacity to overcome. Some of us have had some very difficult circumstances in our life. It is important for us to get revenge on the enemy, to make him pay. I like those days.” –Graham Cooke
