SHAKE SHAKE SHAKE the devil off! Rise up!
“Shake yourself from the dust, arise; Sit down, O Jerusalem! Loose yourself from the bonds of your neck, O captive daughter of Zion!” Isaiah 52:2
You have the power to arise and shake off the dust. How do you respond to the trial and affliction? It matters.
I think a lot of people are waiting for their circumstance to change, but most often it does not. How long will you stayed in your depressed position? His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness, therefore arise! What’s stopping you? In most cases, you are imprisoned in your own thinking. You think you cannot, so you cannot. You blame others for your depression, “You’re keeping me down! You did this to me!” No my friend, a righteous man falls down seven and gets up eight.
God gives you the power to rise, but you have to look up and take hold of that power. The enemy doesn’t have to destroy you, he just has to render you ineffective and he’s won. You are not a victim, but are more than a conqueror in Christ. Stop blaming everyone else for your struggles.
Struggles are a part of life. Difficulty will always be. My road has been hard and afflicted. It’s the narrow path. Is God not greater than your struggle? Is He not able to overcome any barrier? Is anything impossible with God? If your circumstances never change, your mind can change and your thinking can be renewed. His grace is enough.
