You woke up and it started. The demands of the day. The world in a state of chaos over an election. Over a virus that won’t go away. You have bills that need to be paid. Things that need to be figured out.Relationships that need fixing. Decisions to be made. Before you know it you’re spiraling. You go to the book. The book where you’ve always found your peace.The book that has all the answers.
Folding your hands together you bow your head and whisper out all your concerns and needs. You pray for wisdom and guidance. You open your eyes and begin to read. God shows you His truth. Calm washes over you. Your mind opens and you smile. You feel like you could weep. Versus of scripture you’ve read a thousand times take on a new meaning and you’re able to understand better than before. All the fears and chaos melt away. You feel renewed, comforted, and confident to take on the day.
Later that evening, after you’ve dodged attacks from the enemy all day doubt slowly creeps in again. This didn’t work out. That didn’t go as you hoped. Another day has passed and you’re no closer to finding the solution. It doesn’t make sense. You brought it all to God just this morning and he transformed how you felt and thought. But it also made you vulnerable to Satan’s attacks all day. Taking little pieces of you, manipulating you, and manipulating the truth.
You feel weary. Failure echoes over and over again in your mind. How can you be this weak? How could God have already forgotten how much you needed him to carry you? Then you hear the whisper, child nothing changed on my end. Your faith may have wavered depending on your circumstances throughout the day but my love and truth never did and never will.
