No matter how strong we think we are, we doubt. We struggle, we wrestle, we go back and forth…one moment riding high on our faith and the next moment crashing down amidst fear and doubt. It is our flesh and we struggle day to day to put it down and overcome it.
How weak our flesh is and how easily we are driven to hopelessness, eagerly giving in to despair and accepting failure as our lot in life. It is easier to believe in the reality of failure, then to hope for that which we do not think possible. Our minds hand us defeat, while everything in us is clinging to faith and trust.
The adversary comes when we are weak…he whispers lies and convinces us that all hope is lost. He urges us to give in, to give up and he convinces us of failure. He robs those who succumb to his lies of their faith, hope and trust…those things that we need to endure to the end and inherit the Kingdom of Elohim.
Abba did NOT call us out to fail! He does NOT put impossible tasks before us. He does NOT abandon us in the midst of a fiery trial. It is in those times that we MUST cling to Him and LISTEN to His voice above all else, as He beckons us onward…
35 Who shall separate us from the love of the Messiah? Shall pressure, or distress, or persecution, or scarcity of food, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? 36 As it has been written, “For Your sake we are killed all day long, we are reckoned as sheep of slaughter.” 37 But in all this we are more than overcomers through Him who loved us. 38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor messengers nor principalities nor powers, neither the present nor the future, 39 nor height nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of Elohim which is in Messiah יהושע our Master.
Always, seek the truth…rethink, relearn, return.
