LOVE OF GOD

1 Samuel 18:10 The next day an evil spirit from God came forcefully upon Saul. He was prophesying in his house, while David was playing the harp, as he usually did.  Saul had a spear in his hand and he hurled it, saying to himself, “I’ll pin David to the wall.”   But David eluded him twice.

The Scene: The figure represents; 1) a God-loving person, 2) the yellow gold around the person  represents the presence of the Holy Spirit, 3) green hue in the background represents the spirit of jealousy.

Saul could not overcome the strongman– the spirit of jealousy, because he did not love God, and did not have God’s protection from the evil one.

2 Timothy 1:7 For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.

We are to be filled with His Holy Spirit, then when the enemy comes, to steal, kill and destroy, he cannot harm us.

Ephesians 6:10-11 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood,  but against rulers, against authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realm.

Zechariah 4:6b …”not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit”, says the Lord Almighty.
