In the Word we read about Elijah being sent a message by Jezebel, saying she was going to kill him (1 Kings 19 v 1 and 2).
Have you ever wondered why she did not just send men to kill him instead of sending a message?
I think it was that she was concerned about the reaction of the people, and as a result of this had no real power over Elijah; she could only intimidated him with threats.
This is a picture of what the enemy can do to us.
He has no real power; he has no authority over us.
As sons and daughters of the Living God we are the ones with the real spiritual authority.
Without power and authority the enemy can only intimidate us.
He will lie to you, try to deceive you and attempt to intimidate you.
He can only do this as he has NO REAL power over you.
He is trying to make you worry, fear and eventually panic; having taken your eye off the Lord and onto his nonsense instead.
In the Word you see that Elijah was indeed intimidated and ran for his life (1 Kings 19 v 3 and 4); this unfortunately is what we do sometimes when the enemy bares his teeth.
If we focus on the Lord and believe the truth instead of his lies and deceit then we will not be intimidated.
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that I do not require to be intimidated by the enemy, I can focus on you and stay in perfect peace”.
1 Kings 19 v 2…..Then Jezebel sent a messenger unto Elijah, saying, So let the gods do to me, and more also, if I make not thy life as the life of one of them by to morrow about this time
