Sometimes life can get so heavy, it feels like your entire world is crashing in. You can’t move… you can’t see… you don’t really even know what to do. You’re STUCK… and ready to give up. And that’s exactly what the enemy wants you to do: throw in the towel, wave the white flag, give in to “defeat”.
And, ironically, this IS the time to surrender… not to the enemy… but to GOD. THIS is the time to be strong IN THE LORD, and in the power of HIS might (Eph. 6:10)!
The enemy… the devil… wants you to give up. Jesus wants you to give IN… to HIM…. to continue trusting Him and walking by faith… to continue holding on to the fact that He has not abandoned you… that He gives strength to the weak, and increases the power of those who have no might.
He went to the cross to prove His love for you… and He defeated death and rose again to prove that ABSOLUTELY NOTHING can hold Him back!
Don’t give in to discouragement! Lean WHOLLY on God (Prov. 3:5-6), and trust HIM to bring you through! Cry out to Him, and ask for His favor… believe in His promises… trust in His Word… rest in His grace… and know that you are NEVER WITHOUT HOPE!
“I love You, Lord… and I lift my voice… to worship You… O, my soul… rejoice!”
