I've got to be honest...

I don't pop out of bed every morning ready to take on satan.  This morning I woke up, after a very long night of very little sleep, thinking to myself, "LORD, help me with my unbelief." 

It's not easy to always be full of faith and encouraging words.  I have to remind myself daily, sometimes hourly, sometimes minute to minute, when satan tries to come against me. 

I think that's what people don't understand.  It's something you have to do.  When the enemy tries to place doubt in you, you have to stand against it.  You have to say No, satan, the WORD of GOD says....

That is why it is so important that we know the WORD of GOD!  Remember even JESUS was tempted by satan, and had to tell him what the WORD said.  (you can read it in Matthew 4: 1-11)

According to II Corinthians 10:5, we are to...
 5Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

I'm not going to lie, it's not always easy. Therefore it's important for us to know the WORD of GOD, meditate on it and pray for our unbelief...which is where I'm at today.  I'd appreciate your prayers also.

Blessings until next time!

I hear you, Bobbi, and will be holding you up in extra prayer. What you have said is so true, and I like the verse that says, "Having done all stand." And sometimes we have to stand, and s-t-a-n-d and S-T-A-N-D. I know I have a few that I've been standing on for years and will continue until my faith is turned into sight!!!
