THE STRUGGLE IS REAL. Are you struggling today? Good. It means you are still in this fight! There is no victory without conflict. Your struggle means you’re still alive and breathing and you haven’t given up and quit. Your struggle means you’re human and you still have to fight that old nasty flesh. You’re struggling because we have a common enemy that hates you with every ounce of his being and seeks to destroy everything that’s good, right, pure and true.
Yes, your struggle is real, but God is greater than your struggle. He’s greater than any circumstance, no matter how large it seems in your mind. He’s so much more mightier than the devil and He has overcome every single sin that would try to trap you and cause you to fail. “Remember the word to Your servant, Upon which You have caused me to hope. This is my comfort in my affliction, For Your word has given me life.” Psalms 119:49-50 RUN TO JESUS. His Word gives you life and strength for your battles.
Jesus overcame the devil by the Word, and so can you- the old serpent must flee when you speak the Word with authority. Don’t lose hope in your struggle- read God’s promises to you and remember His whispers that He has spoken to you in the midnight hour. His blood grants you access to His throne, therefore go boldly. God is greater than any struggle you will ever go through! Guard your mouth from perverseness and stop complaining. Run to Jesus. Find scripture to give you comfort, have faith in His promises and rely on His strength to see you through.
