I can tell you, for the past two weeks Satan has hounded the heck out of me. On first impact, my thought is to tuck and run. I’ve battled depression for most of my life and Satan knows how and where to strike. This time, he’s under estimated me.
I always know when he’s coming. It’s when God is moving in my life in powerful ways. He wants to distract me…to keep me from focusing on the things of God. I’ve been writing a women’s bible study. It begins tomorrow and I’ve been very deep in prayer for the participants as well as myself. It hasn’t been easy. “I know I’ve got an enemy waiting that wants to bring me pain”.
I’m sure I’m not alone. Perhaps you’re going through a storm yourself or Satan really has you in his cross-hairs. Whatever your battle, whatever your storm, remember… “For God has not given you a spirit of fear, but of power and of love, and of a sound mind.” (II Timothy 1:7)
I hope you’ll join me in the bible study titled “An Habakkuk Faith” and in facing Satan head on. May this be your prayer. “I will not retreat or surrender…so bring it on.”
