When it feels like people are asking more than you have after you have already given so much, God will empower you to give more than you thought was possible while blessing you to overflow. Rest in HIM and HiS example and you’ll realize no one can ever demand of you more than HE has already given. When I need to regain perspective about how others treat me or how I treat others, Philippians 2 is my “go to” chapter of the Bible when I find my attitude being pulled in the wrong direction. It’s like a #PerspectiveResetButton.
And no, I am not talking about the lines for Black Friday shopping. That is one battle I’m choosing not to fight this year – LOL!
However, if you’re breathing …. sooner or later you will experience a battle for your very soul. The enemy in this battle will try to rob you of your joy, peace, and maybe even your sanity. But the good news is: You don’t have to go into that battle unarmed. And when you put on the whole armor of God, not only will you survive what you never thought you could – you will also conquer and become a glorious story of grace.
So, I would encourage you…. If you feel like you’re in a battle line today, do not be passive. Instead, actively engage in worshipping God – not only praising Him, but also declaring words of truth over yourself, your heart, and your situation. This quote from Holley Gerth says it well: “Worship is an act of War against the enemy of our hearts.”
A friend just shared this verse and quote with me that made me reassess where my “center” is today. Great stuff – so I thought I would share!
“…who saved us and called us to a holy calling, not because of our works but because of his own purpose and grace, which he gave us in Christ Jesus before the ages began.” 2 Timothy 1:9
I’m ditchin’ the Pity Party.
I have better things to do then to sit around and focus on things I have no control over.
