Everyday we grow a little older with our bodies growing a little weaker. Everyday we line up for battle as the war wages on between good and evil. It can become wearisome over time as we continuously fight against the evil of this world while trying to save others in the midst of fire. It is easy to lose heart as time goes on, but fellow brothers and sisters please do not lose heart.
“Therefore do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day.” (2 Corinthians 4:16 NKJV).
The devil wants us to lose heart and give up on God and what He has in store for us. When we give up the devil gets a temporary win for himself and when we really give up, he then gets another soul that joins him in his final destination. Everyday he will try to beat you down and cause you to stumble. The key is to get back up each time and not stay down.
“For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.” (17-18).
Jesus has already won the war and it is up to us to win the day to day battles, but thankfully we are not alone as the Lord is there to help and strengthen us along the way. It is up to us to wake up and put on the armor of God daily while leaning upon Him and being filled with His Holy Spirit. What areas has the devil been attacking you in today? Let the Holy Spirit renew you each day, bringing refreshment, power and strength both spiritually and physically in your life.
