So you are going through a really rough time right now? The devil is leading you by the nose through its special brand of hell. You don’t know what to do. You’ve called out to God but nothing seems to have changed. Depressive thoughts darken the horizon like threatening storm clouds.
There is an answer. It comes with understanding the spirit world surrounding us all; unseen, it rules our lives. There is good and there is evil. They are not entities in themselves, but they come from 2 sources. God is good and only good flows from Him. The devil, satan, is His enemy and hates God and all of us whom God loves; satan is the source of all evil.
Understanding this leads us to answers. The devil is very clever at deception and lies; he is attacking us constantly from all angles.
God loves us and wants to show Himself strong for us, but we must allow Him access. The Bible gives us God’s instructions for attaining all the potential He put in us at birth. It tells us how to establish a relationship with Him. [For more information on this, see the book Cast Up A Highway.] Having a strong connection with our God puts us and keep us on the right road!
The critical key here is where do you keep your focus? As you are traveling down this rough patch, is your focus on the bumps and potholes. . .
or is your focus on God who promises to be with us always? He is the one who will keep us not just riding in the light of truth, but bring us onto a better path where we’ll find ourself stronger and the road smoother.
Sounds like a simple answer to a painful experience. Nonetheless, it is true. The enemy wants you to believe all the evil stuff happening will go on forever and you cannot change it. But Jesus said, come to Me. . .
Matthew 11:28 [AMP]
Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy-laden and overburdened, and I will cause you to rest. [I will ease and relieve and refresh your souls.]
There is a lot of darkness in the world these days from death, poverty, conflict, murders, diseases. My friends, you can travel through the fiercest storms with joy in your heart, but you have to trust God to bring you through it. (In the book above I briefly talk about what God did in my journey through cancer.)
Proverbs 3:5-6 (AMPC)
Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding.
In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths.
