Phew! You finally have the chance to just sit. No interruptions. No distractions. Just you, your thoughts and your day. If you’re really lucky, your day was perfect and not so horrible that you need to really decompress. If you’re normal, like me, you need time to reflect upon the successful moments and the not-so-picturesque moments of the day. When I do have moments (
which are few and very far between) to just reflect about the day I make it a priority to invite God into my reflection time. Why? Even in the midst of an innocent moment like this the enemy of my soul is always waiting to pounce. It can start with one thought that could lead to many CRAZY thoughts.
Before you know it you could begin to feel inadequate, overwhelmed and stuck!
In that moment, the love of God surrounds and reminds me that I am HIS! I am not alone! This is how you fight these battles! You rest within His arms and recognize that you have power to overcome these things because HE IS POWER! Jesus said, “I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; NOTHING will harm you.” As a matter of fact, it ALL works FOR YOU! God is so good!!!!!
One thing God has spoken, two things I have heard: “Power belongs to you, God!”
