Sometimes our greatest joys can be marred by the intruder, who tries to invade our homes to rob us of not only of possessions, but also our freedom. There is hope read and be blessed, you do not have to be afraid of the intruder for the Greater One is protecting you!!

It is a time of excitement and great joy. You have just received the keys to your newly constructed home. Without any delay driving swiftly to inspect your new home. It is discovered rather quickly that an intruder had forced one of the bedroom locks, and had gained entry into the home. What is even worse, the intruder had also broken open one of the walls beneath the bedroom's window. What a horrible sinking feeling of emptiness, and not wanting to live in your home anymore.

In your walk with God in spite serving of serving Abba Father faithfully, the intruder comes into your home and steals your loved ones away. Turning your home upside down momentarily, leaving you in fear and with a void that only Abba Father can fill. There is continual anguish in your heart, and the tormenting question resounding " Lord why me? " The answer speaks from the word of God in the book of Isaiah 59:19 which says " When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him. " What does this all mean? The pain of losing your son or your daughter, the grief that you are experiencing at this very moment, because your spouse had walked out of your life. Yes you have completed the necessary repairs of the damage caused by the intruder. Yet the the pain and the loss remains, but the fear won't go away as your heart still aches.

The intruder has made you a prisoner in your own home, even to the point of being afraid of going to your own kitchen alone. Suddenly one night in the wee hours of the morning, you are awakened and beckoned to go and pray. There is absolutely no fear! You begin to pray, only to experience sleepiness and to find that you just did not know how to pray, or even what to say to the awesome presence that is surrounding you. As you turn to get up off your knees, the comfort of the word speaks to you from Hebrews 13:5 saying " I will never leave, nor forsake thee. " Then the word reminds you of what 2 timothy 1:7 says " For God hath not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love and of a sound mind. " In an instant your whole perspective changes, fear and torment vanishes away. Your pain and grieving heart receives the healing balm of the word of God. With the act of forgiveness that penetrates your heart, through the infusion of Abba Father's Agape love.

Yes the questioning of why may never be answered. Yet the word speaks to you again  from Isaiah 59:19 " When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him. " Only this time your understanding is enlightened by this word. You now understand that in route to your divine destiny the intruder will come in and seemingly disrupt, and sometimes hinder you in many ways. Yet there is an assurance that Abba Father will intervene on your behalf. The intruder will not succeed because you are the winner. Yes you are what God says you are in Romans 8:37 it reads " Nay, in all these things we are mors than conquerors through him that loved us. " Don't you ever for one moment forget that 1 John 4:4 says " Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world. " Remember Abba Father has given you power and authority over the intruder. Give the Almighty God all the praise and glory. The intruder is defeated and all of his works are rendered null and void!!!
