Magic or Majesty by Sheri Rose Shepherd
Pharaoh’s magicians tried to do the same thing with their secret arts, but this time they failed. And the gnats covered everyone, people and animals alike. — Exodus 8:18
There is an illusion created by the enemy that appears to be something our heart longs for. But our soul will never be satisfied if we settle for something that is not real. Many times we imagine the things created by the world to be more majestic than the things created by God, but you cannot hold onto illusions for long. Click on this week’s video to uncover more about what the enemy is doing to steal what God has for you.
God's Letter to You
I believe if The Lord was going to write you a personal letter about battles this life brings it may read like this....
I am the God of miracles, but many of my children will never see the miracles I long for them to experience because they have put their faith in a man-made illusion of happiness. I want you to let me help you discern the difference between man-made magic and a real miracle from me. What comes from me is everlasting and will satisfy your soul so much more than any illusion this world can create for you because I am your creator and the ultimate creator. A counterfeit may be able to create a false feeling of comfort in the moment, but it will leave you longing for more and create an addiction that can hold you hostage. I want you to learn to live by what you know and not what you see.
Your Father in Heaven
I lift your precious daughter up before you today. I ask that you would remove the blinders from her eyes and break the chains from around her heart that hold her hostage to anything that is not of you. Amen.
