IF THE ENEMY HAS A BULLET

Years ago our family went through a “bullet” season. You know the kind that once it hits your family, you are down for the count?  It’s  reminiscent of a 50 cal bullet going off in your chest. A bullet season are those moments  that completely take your breath!  They knock you to your knees and can shake even the strongest Christian.

 


I wholeheartedly believe that if the enemy has a bullet he will use it. I also think that’s perhaps sometimes God allows what He does in our lives so the stinger can be exposed!  I don’t know how many times I’ve been “privately” stung by the enemy in regards to something I did in my past.  He stings and stings and stings!  When he strikes us, we can’t bring it to light because as a rule the pain from the sin is so great. But sometimes God allows the bullet to be shot so they stinger can be plucked out! So many times God brings things to light we would have rather stayed hidden. It stings and brings pain but it is needed for the journey God has us on.

For many of us, the bullet had lodged in the chamber for a long time. It’s been ready to be used by the enemy for ages. It was just waiting to be shot and God knew it.  Sometimes on this journey of being favored, God exposes what He does to make us bullet proof for the journey. God perhaps was tired of thousand private stings the enemy has pelted you with over the years.


No one is immune my friend…no one.
All this is about the gospel going forward…..All of it! If the hidden bullet hinders you then why wouldn’t God allow it to be shot?  Is there some repairing to be done from the damage? There always is but once the scar heals, we will never forget what the bullet costs us. I’ve given the analogy before in connection to the life of Joseph. Joseph was in the prison for a season. I am sure the stocks around his feet left scars. Some of us have scars from seasons we would have never wanted to walk through but the scars remind us how important it is to never be imprisoned again.


This my friend is the backfire of the bullet on the child of God.  Boom!  Jesus is in the backfiring business! The enemies work backfires when God steps in!

 


God brings it to light and exposes it is so the bullet in no longer in the chamber!!!!   When we feel like God is systematically allowing us to be taken out…He’s not!!!  God is getting rid of the bullets!  I will prophetically speak that to the top of my lungs. If the enemy has a bullet he will use it, then God steps in to soothe, correct and adjust us so that His glory can be shown even in a shrapnel filled body.

If they enemy has a bullet and he shoots it, God won’t waste it my friend!

Jesus took the stinger out of death! If the enemy has a bullet, that stinger has been paid for!

“Where, O death, is your victory?  Where, O death, is your sting?” 
The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
I Corinthians 15:55-57
