We have all been there. Things are going well. We are confident in our next move and then evil steps in. Something happens that literally stops us where we are standing. We immediately begin to question everything. Am I where I am supposed to be? What am I doing wrong? Why does this keep happening to me?
You are not alone. We have all felt discouraged, deflated, let down, disheartened. We all have different reactions to this. Some want to sit in a corner and eat their feelings. Some want to cry. Others get mad.
When the hit comes, know this – you must be doing something right for evil to pay attention to you. Satan is not going to waste his time on people who are not living for God, he will target those that are making a difference. In a way, this is good news. You are on the right path. Your life is making a difference.
While you might want to sit still and stop moving, do not let this stumbling block keep you from serving the Lord. Remember that there is a plan in place for your life. It might not feel like it now, but you are doing great.
Prayer is key in these situations. Pray in your quiet place. God knows what is happening and He wants to bring peace and comfort in your life. Seek out support from other Christians. We have all been through it and we would love to pray with you and lift you up.
Walk through this time in your life. Keep on the path with God. Do not allow evil to win this victory in your life. If you need a momentary pause, take it. Stand still and allow God to move in your life. Then, take that next step and keep moving forward.
Turn your discourage into encourage and have courage. God’s got this.
