Feel Like Someone’s Trying to Wear You Down?

WEAR YOU DOWN

He will speak out against the Most High and wear down the saints of the Highest One”

SHARPEN PENCILThis morning I was getting ready for church and I went to sharpen my eyebrow pencil but there was nothing left.  I had sharpened it so many times that it was completely worn out, there was nothing left inside.  I looked at the pencil and thought it was a pretty good representation of how I was feeling.  Issues unresolved in my life for almost a decade have left my energy depleted.  It’s frustrating because in so many areas of my life I have seen such tremendous growth and increase, yet in this area the enemy ‘seems’ to have the upper hand.

Have you ever Felt Like Someone’s Trying to Wear You Down?

Proverbs 17:22 says, “a broken spirit saps a person’s strength.”

You see, there literally is someone trying to wear You down.  The enemy of your soul is trying to break your spirit so he can sap your energy and get you to quit.  When talking about the devil, Jesus reminds us that he comes only to steal, kill and destroy.  The devil doesn’t have any good plans for your life…but God does!

God has planned for your victory. 

VICTORYUnderstanding victory is only achieved through a battle helps you accept that although victory doesn’t come easy, it will come!

If you’re feeling worn down, worn out and sapped of strength today…please don’t give up! Fight the urge to “become weary in doing good, for at the proper time” you “will reap a harvest if” you “do not give up.”3

Prayer

Father…I thank You for promising me victory.  The enemy will do his best to try and wear me down, but Your joy will be my strength.  You have given me everything I need for life and I trust that you will use this current battle to bring about overwhelming victory4 in my life!  In Jesus Name…Amen
