Does God’s Spirit ever hit you on the head when you are reading the Bible or a good devotional? Well, that happened to me today. And this quote particularly stuck out to me.
There’s a reason you are being attacked. (If you’re not, go encourage someone who is) You are blessed and favored by our Father in Heaven. And the enemy…well, he comes after the blessed and favored.
By this I know that you delight in me: my enemy will not shout in triumph over me. But you have upheld me because of my integrity, and set me in your presence forever. – Psalm 41:11-12
Yes…God does delight in YOU! Keep your eyes laser-focused on Him and maintain your integrity. The only power/influence the enemy has over you is what you give him. We have already won because He already has the victory.
This is as much a reminder to myself as for anyone, but I thought I’d pass it on to you as well. Hang tight….your current struggle is not without purpose and Jesus IS walking with you every step of the way.
