Isaiah 54:10 (TM)
“For even if the mountains walk away and the hills fall to pieces, My love won’t walk away from you, my covenant commitment of peace won’t fall apart.” The God who has compassion on you says so. Often times, satan tries his best to bring discouragement to our hearts. He tries to get us weary with life’s challenges and ensures graduation to a stage of depression then total burnout.
Remember Elijah’s story, he had to flee because he challenged the status quo and Jazabel sought after his life. Elijah got wearied at heart, he experienced a total burn out to the extent of telling God to take his life. God reminded him there were still prophets who had not given in to the pressure, that encouraged him.
Sometimes, satan plays that trick. Never forget he only tries and you can’t give in to his pressure now. He is not a lion, he only roars like it. Shine the Light of God’s word on him and see how toothless he is.
Gird your heart with the shield of faith, rest in His wonderful arms, you are not discouraged and disadvantaged because you have God as Father. His love will never never depart from you.
Read, the Opening text again.
I am not discouraged. My heart is filled with the overwhelming love of God. Amen
