Use Your Words


Earlier this morning as I was praying I was thinking about an encouragement that I see often across social media in various forms. The thought is if we are meeting with resistance or experiencing push back then surely God is getting ready to bless us. I’m still looking for where that is specifically in Scripture and if you have any verse references please leave them in the comments.

Resistance and push back are simply part of the enemy’s plan to lie, cheat, steal and destroy.  Especially when we begin to choose to go deeper into an intimate relationship with God. Satan doesn’t want us to know one iota more about our identity, authority or inheritance in Christ than we currently do because he knows what that will look like for him and glory to God it isn’t pretty!

As I continued to pray this morning I heard Holy Spirit gently whisper, “You push back, you resist.” In a moment’s notice my prayers did an about face and I began to fight back in prayer like the mighty warrior that I am.

Spiritual warfare is so real that is why it is so important to be in God’s word everyday. Holy Spirit infuses you with Scripture that he imprints on your heart and in your soul and when the moment is called for He brings the right verse to mind. He gives us His words for the battle.

Precious One, as the old saying goes, “Them’s fightin’ words!”

  1. I don’t know of any verses which say specifically we are about to be blessed following persecution, if that’s what you mean. The closest I can think of is (Matthew 5:11-12), which says: “Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me. 12 Rejoice and celebrate, because great is your reward in heaven; for in the same way they persecuted the prophets before you.…”

    Primarily I think we experience “push back” in order to learn perseverance in our faith. People may not agree with us, nor appreciate our way of life, but we are here to please the Lord. If people don’t approve, we still must persist in following our Lord.


    • I agree, Steve. I think it is dangerous to buy into that God is getting ready to bless simply because we are experiencing push back or resistance. Thank you for stopping by to read and comment!!
