Get back up

When sin creeps in and knocks you down...
you get back up.
"They will fight against you but will not overcome you,
for I am with you and will rescue you," declares the LORD." Jeremiah 1:19
It feels good to feel strong. To feel confident that the Lord is refining the  struggle that continues to break you down. 
It feels good. It feels happy.
I feel blessed.
But its at that very moment that Satan thrives on attack.
Keep your head held high, your shoulders lifted.
And when it starts to happen, and you feel your joy start to dwindle...
get back up. Resight this passage and know that
 He his your warrior when satan tries to attack.
"The LORD will march out like a mighty man, like a warrior he will stir up his zeal; with a shout he will raise the battle cry and will triumph over his enemies." Isaiah 42:13
  I am a work in progress. And I know God is still molding me and reteaching me from what I've known for so long. Refining a struggle takes time. I will be changed. I will overcome this.
So I encourage you, when satan continues to creep in and steel your joy, your hope, your courage...dont give up the fight!!You will overcome this. Whatever your struggle is. Whatever your fight. Whatever is too heavy for you. Lay it down. Break the chains and let God take on this burden.
God will prevail!
