The Things You Have

by Donna L. Watkins

So often we are caught up in the circumstances of every day ... or in the battle of life for a long season, but one thing that will always encourage you is when you begin to list all the blessings you have outside of the circumstances. If we focus on the present earthly conditions in our life, we will be dragging along, but God has given us a choice to rejoice in all things, for He has won the victory already. We just simply have to enforce that victory with the power and authority that He gave us.

When the seventy returned with joy, saying, “Lord, even the demons are subject to us in Your name,” Jesus said to them, “I was watching Satan fall from heaven like lightning.  Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing will injure you.” (Luke 10:17-19)

When we are weak He gives us strength. Faith appropriates the work of the Cross into our lives. It's simple, but definitely not easy to stand when you want to crawl into a hole and whine. It's okay to cry ... some days you can stand with your armor and other days you just crawl into the Father's lap and rest.

Don't give up no matter how many times you fall down. The Enemy is not stronger than you are. That's a lie and deception that he wants you to believe.  All he can do is deceive and if you come into agreement with him, he will accomplish his mission in life ... to kill, steal and destroy us!
