In the Spirit, I see that many have faced a few setbacks and distractions over the last couple weeks. The Lord spoke to my Spirit and said: “Tell my people that 2018 will be an incredible year of planting and reaping seeds of destiny and promise in their families, ministries, and relationships… for them to contend for it.”

Since the Lord will be very active in 2018 the enemy has ramped up his attacks, side tracks, hindrances, and distractions. He wants to discourage your ability to move forward with POWER into 2018. He is working hard this month to create snares… so don’t fall for it!

The Lord said: “So that Satan will not outsmart us. For we are familiar with his evil schemes.” (2 Cor 2:11) I want to encourage you beloved to “Be sober-minded and alert. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.” (1 Peter 5:8) It is absolutely vital we use the Word of God like never before in the remaining part of 2017. Matthew 4:10 gives us this declaration: “Away from me, Satan!” Jesus declared. “For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God and serve Him only.'” Defeat the enemy by using the Word!

Let me encourage you precious friend to speak forth the word of God and do not get lazy throughout this holiday season. Be diligent living in the Spirit. Use discernment. Stay alert and counteract the enemy with the Word of God. God has incredible surprises for you in 2018 so prepare, use wisdom daily, and contend for it!
