This was written during a difficult time in my life when I was trying to walk closer with God. It seemed that no matter which way I turned, the enemy was waiting around the corner to devour me. Do you ever feel this way? Do you ever feel like carrying your cross is next to impossible? Do you ever wake up, and before your day even begins, feel defeated? Fear not! You are not alone! This is the daily journey we as Christians face–the battle and the inner struggle to be more like Jesus!
My dear readers, be not dismayed; more difficult times than these are ahead of us than ever before. Stick close to Jesus, for He sticks closer than a brother! Know that when you stand solid upon His Word, He will back you up! He will never leave you nor forsake you! This you must remember!
Psalms 18:2, “The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.
The enemy comes against me daily, causing torment, anguish, and pain. He is relentless as he robs me of my joy and my blessings.
Lord, I want to please You; I strive to find You and my purpose in this life. I give my life to You! Yet, old ways of sin and habits that I should not have been a part of consume me; they are hard to put to death. Some things, Father, are far more difficult than others.
Please provide for me a way of escape this time so that temptation cannot have her way and cause me to sin against You! I cry out to You for Your help and for Your mercy, Lord Jesus. May the temptation not even present itself, at least not this day when I am not yet strong enough!
I sense in my spirit that if I give in, since my eyes have now been further opened, that Your anger shall rise up against me, O’ Lord! Your wrath shall surely be upon me! For my enemies (Satan and his wicked demons) lie in wait for me. If I give in, it shall be as a blood-soaked piece of meat being tossed before a pack of wild dogs–viciously devouring to no end–while fighting each other to be the first to devour it!
O’ Father, release me from this yoke of bondage in which I am imprisoned! Release those I love from the curse of my sin!
Pour Your Holy Spirit upon me, sanctify and cleanse me from all unrighteousness so that I may be clean before You.
In Jesus Name, I Pray, Amen.
As I search His Holy Scriptures daily, I am reminded of His power and glory. I am reminded of the godly fear that I am developing for Him. God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit (the Trinity) are one! I am listing just a few notes about each one so you can see how all three together perfectly make the one.
God: Power, Anger, Jealous, I AM, Wrath, Law
Jesus: The Voice, Love, Compassion, Healer, Teacher, Merciful, Life Giving
Holy Spirit: Intercessor, Comforter, Helper, Witness, Discerner, Interpreter
