off balance best best

These are difficult days for many including myself.  Many of us have to deal with all kinds of trials….health, wealth, job loss, hurricanes, etc.  To add to this pressure the enemy (satan) is trying to get us off-balance so that we will stumble and fall.  It’s not the things we go through as much as it is a battle in our minds.  Things will always be going on in our lives but…the enemy tries to cause fear, jealousy, mistrust, doubt, worry…just anything to…TRIP US UP!

off balance best

When we are going through rough trials… it’s like we are already hopping on one foot and the enemy is shoving trying to get us off-balance.  I’m sure you have felt wobbly at times.  I have felt this recently and I know just what to do…..

  1. Resist the devil!
  2. Pray!
  3. Sing songs of praise to God!
  4. Get alone time with God and meditate on His goodness!
  5. Think about and draw from the hidden word of God in my heart!
  6. Cast all my care on Him!
  7. Hold myself steady on memories of all the past victories and miracles from the Lord!

I want to leave you with these scripture for today:

1 Corinthians 15:58 Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.

James 4:7 Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

1 Peter 5:7 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.

Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.

Message for today:  Even if we begin to feel off balance….the Lord can keep us steady.

The Lord will keep you steady.

The Lord will keep you steady.
