Why is my mind disquieted this morning~ feeling weak and grumpy? It’s like something is stirring an evil mix into the atmosphere. I sit with my coffee and begin to praise my Lord, but my heart is not in it. I call out to God: Why am I feeling so bland this morning? Yesterday I was strong and good. This morning feels like all the inner toughness has seeped out leaving behind this niggling fear.
My ever faithful Holy Spirit brings to mind Scriptures of Gods promises:
Psalm 138:8 (AMP)
The Lord will perfect that which concerns me;
I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me
[I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me;
I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency].
Isaiah 41:10 (AMP)
Fear not [there is nothing to fear], for I am with you;
do not look around you in terror and be dismayed,
for I am your God.
I will strengthen and harden you to difficulties,
yes, I will help you;
41:13 For I, the Lord your God, will hold your right hand,
Saying to you, ‘Fear not, I will help you.’
As God’s Words go in through my eyes and penetrate my mind, they re-infuse His strength into me. The enemy is so good at catching me unawares with a bombshell, and often it is just a false thought He calls into the mind and feeds my imagination to magnify it. It is a great distraction, but I refuse to allow it to reign for long.
Jesus, why is this happening today? He tells me, “I am preparing you for the darkness that is coming, so My light in you cannot be diminished, that you will always maintain strong mindsets and not be distracted nor deceived by the enemy.”
The Lion of Judah is promising to help me, so what have I to fear?
Thank You Jesus. You are awesome in Your love for us! You answer prayer and You help us when we need it. You know the future and what it will require of us, so You, our conquering King, prepare us for victory!
Is He preparing you?
