Listen, I know the struggle is real. I know it’s hard when you feel like if one more bad thing happens in life, right off the edge you’re going to go. It’s overwhelming and frustrating when it’s hit after hit. Life can feel just plan hard sometimes. But let me remind you of few things…
A) God is good, all the time.
B) “I can do all this through Him who gives me strength.” Philippians 4:13 NIV
The enemy wants us to live in the struggle. He doesn’t want us to just step over the edge. He wants us running and jumping over the edge. And he will do everything in his power to take us there. So let me give you a different perspective when you feel those repeated hits.
If the enemy is repeatedly hitting, God is setting you up for something good.
Why would the enemy want you to stay in line with God? He doesn’t. He wants to tear us down, break us into pieces, and have us going over the edge. So we have to stay steadfast and stay in line with Lord.
So if you feel like you’re close to the edge and just don’t know how much more you can take…take a step back, go to your knees, and take a moment with God. He’ll guide you, he’ll hold you if need be, and he will most certain help you stay away from the edge. And remember…this just may a season that God is preparing you for goodness; and not the attack that it feels.
Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.
James 1:12 NIV
Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Matthew 5:3 NIV
Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings.
1 Peter 5:8-9 NIV
