The enemy loves to magnify our problems. He can take the smallest fraction of a problem or even a hesitation and turn it into a tragedy. Once he knows our weaknesses, then he will do everything in his power to use them against us.
The battle goes on in or mind. In all reality, the devil can’t defeat us. Our souls belong to God. The enemy torments our flesh by causing us to doubt, worry, and over think. Then once we get in the right frame of mind, he sneaks in the lies.
It’s a constant battle. Whenever we figure out the ways of the enemy, he changes his ways and comes at us in a different way. While we might be vulnerable and weak, our Lord can defeat him for us. So often we try to fight the battle on our own. When we really just need to take it to the Lord. He is our Creator and our Protector. Our God can stop the battle with one word. His power is greater than anything we can imagine.
When the enemy is beating us into the ground, we need to remember how David defeated Goliath. The Lord stood up for David and He will take care of us as well. We have nothing to fear. Nothing can separate us from the Lord.
John 16:33 (KJV)
33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
During times of trouble, the best thing for us to do is take all to the Lord. When we give Him our troubles, our doubts, and fears, then He will give us His peace.
Love and blessings,
