Are You Believing The Lies?

“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. John 10:10(NIV)

Discouragement, hard times, heaviness, that’s what we hear all around us. Marriages crumbling, illnesses, losses, addictions, so many battles. Satan wants to isolate us and deceive us into feeling like we are battling alone. He wants us to feel the weight and discouragement because then he has us trapped. He wants us to wallow in our pits of despair. We look at social media and see how “good” everyone’s lives look, their clothes, marriages, kids, families. He fools us to believing we are the only one in this dark place. But friend let me tell you it’s LIES, LIES, and MORE LIES! Don’t let him fool you. We are not alone.

God created us for relationships. He gave us circles of friends to wrap around us and pray for us. Just recently I sent out a text to several asking how I could pray for them. Each of them was dealing with something hard. But God was there in the midst of it all. He showed up by a simple text message asking how can I pray for you? He wants to remind you that you are not alone.

Fight those attacks my friend. Don’t get caught up in your pit. Get up and fight. Text those around you to pray. Don’t wait for a text from them. Tell others how to pray and ask how you can pray for them. Open your Bible and read. Let God speak to you and use you in your pit to minister to others and enjoy the blessing of being ministered to as well. Look up scripture to send with your prayers. Don’t just promise to pray, send a prayer in response. Let God shine light where Satan tried to darken. God has a fresh new perspective and a light to shine on your path.

“Father, let me not wallow in my pit but use me to minister to others and fight Satan’s desperate attempt to destroy me and my friends. Let me see clearly with your light shining.”

For His Glory
