Being humble is the key to winning every single battle. And allow me to clarify. Being humble is in no way, shape or form the same thing as being weak. It is being so very powerful, using every ounce of strength enough to fall before the Ultra-Powerful God of the universe and admit you need help and ask Him for it. Then He fights for you and He wins for you any possible battle ever. And the shame is that most people will not allow God to prove this truth in their lives. They prideful want to cling to each battle and keep it going for years and keep trying or running (addiction fantasies) for years, getting depressed or beat down or bitter or ruined. The winning is so simple if you choose it but it requires taking off the pride and clothing with humility and falling before God. So simple. So true. So beautiful. Worth a go, truly. It works. My life attests to this truth.❤
All of us who follow Jesus and draw closer to God every day are tired. We are still fighting the fight but the air is thick with spiritual/demonic activity and darkness. There is still nature where it is not but everywhere people are, there are spiritual attacks, illnesses, difficulties, financial issues, lust issues, greed, malicious words, lack of truth, whatever the case may be. It is thick. The spiritual war is hot and heavy and it is exhausting, even when you give everything to God for Him to handle. Families are being hit hard and even when we are right, we have sadness for those who are lost and refuse to listen. We know their fate and it is a burden of great magnitude. So we fight but we are tired. We need to delay rest until heaven (not far off now) and keep fighting, prating, reading our Bibles, loving people, telling only the truth in love, serving. We need to. We have to. Maybe one more will listen and be saved. Maybe we can encourage each other. Fighting tired is the reality but keep in your joy and peace and keep fighting. God bless you and your efforts.❤
When you are doing anything for the Lord, the enemy attacks. His first attack is personal and often involves the immediate family. Evil loves destroying families and ruining homes and us. Sometimes it is subtle jabs and criticisms that make people feel unappreciated. Sometimes evil induces family squabbles and majors on minor things to begin fights and stir up animosity and doubts and anger. Sometimes it is more blatant like hormonal imbalances and mood swings as well as temper flare ups and the like. Our families are always vulnerable to the enemies’ attacks because they mean the most to us and hurt us the deepest when disrupted. Sometimes the enemy drudges up wrongs or sins or criticisms of the past that had been forgiven and forgotten for a while and allows them to dig in and weaken us. Other times the enemy brings up something brand new like a false accusation or outsider or even friend all of a sudden saying something hurtful or abandoning you or whatever. You get the idea. Probably experienced one or all of those as some point which had one redeeming value. It reinforces the fact that you aster a threat to the enemy. He sees potential for God in you, sees God’s reflection in you, sees potential in your family and feels threatened. Good news: all bullies (even spiritual ones) are cowards. God is bigger and has already won and nd when you remind these vile creatures of that, they have to go. Of course cowards come back when they feel safer but if you keep standing on God’s truth against them, they have to go again. So take these cowardly attacks as compliments that you are on the right track with God. The enemy won’t try so hard with whom he has already. (Cowards are pretty lazy too.) And keep in Truth and prayer to fight the enemy. And know God always loves you/us and fights alongside. I am never alone and neither are you. Love you!
