Those days where you want to quit, to just finally give up and say, “Enough!” We all have them. And that is what the enemy wants. What he feeds on, puts his hope in, encourages, and where he exerts his energy.
Creating quitters who walk away from situations that are tough. Or his favorite; Christians who walk away from their faith.
Hes’ a cunning liar. Just like in the garden with Eve, he whispers lies. “Phst, God didn’t really mean you have to stay in this marriage if you’re unhappy.” Or “God didn’t really mean you had to be respectful to that boss. He knows how difficult she is to work with, surely He didn’t mean for you to . . .”
Before we throw in the towel and walk away, we need to decide if what we’re hearing is in line with God’s word. Or is it a deceitful whisper from our enemy who seeks to destroy us?
God did give us authority to say, “Enough!”
Enough of the lies. Enough of the deceit. Enough of listening to one who slithers around, sneaking into the cracks in order to take us down to his lowly level.
My friend, keep going. PUSH – Pray Until Something Happens. Because when you come out of this trial, you will be able to look back and say, “Look what God did!” Instead of, “Look what the enemy ruined.”
Triumph! You’ve got this one!
