“Whom have I in heaven but You?
And besides You, I desire nothing on earth.”
“My soul thirsts for God, for the living God; When
shall I come and appear before God?”
These scriptures paint a picture of my love for God. I really
need more of Him everyday. I am nothing without Him.
Where could I go and what could I do without Him???
He really is the love of my life!
But I am in a war right now and the results of the war will have
a huge impact on my relationship with God.
The fight caught me unawares. For some time I supplied the
enemy with the arsenal he needed to have an edge on me.
Can you imagine that?!!!
I was totally blindsided by the enemy.
You see, the war I am engaged in is not happening on a plain
that is easily recognizable.
The war I am engaged in is happening right at my doorstep, as a
matter of fact it’s happening closer than that. This war of epic
proportions is happening right in my home!
How could I miss it? How did I not recognize the enemy’s tactic?
A face to face confrontation wouldn’t have done the trick. I would
have quickly dismissed him. Instead he came slyly into my
home through television, social media, and so on. I used to spend
so much time with Yeshua in the past. When I would get home
I would make sure I spent my time in prayer, and word.
Yes I would do other things but they were not the “main” things.
Spending time with God was on the top of the list.
But one day that pattern changed.
I would get home and put on the television.
If there was nothing to watch I would go online.
There was even a time I would forgo church functions to watch
The war is real friends.
When God by His grace opened my eyes to what I was doing
I realized I had to cut things out of my life. The first thing to go was
the television. I had to look to God for help. I couldn’t do it alone.
But that didn’t go without a fight!
What the heck!!
I am slowly gaining the ground I lost in the beginning. The fight
has been brutal but I will keep fighting because my relationship
with God depends on it. He is the love of my life.
He is the One I desire above all else and I am not alone in this.
He is right by my side helping me!
I want to fall deeper in love with Him and nothing must stand in
the way of that.
Friends, as hard as that was to write the goal is to help you see
how far the enemy is willing to take the battle. Your battle will
be different from mine but you must know that the enemy will
take the battle to your home!
if you are single this post is for you especially, the time you have
now is so important. It is in this time you get deeper with God.
Don’t make the mistake I made by allowing distractions to take
away the precious time I had kept aside for God.
And if you are strong in this area then please pray for me.
I need all the help I can get!
It is a winnable war. God bless you.
Thank you for that Victor!
I am also with the same situation as you are. However, the distractions are most likely my hobbies and goals, like lettering, reading and listening to music. Most of the time I am forgetting to have a devotional and/or read the Bible and/or even pray.
But as Victor said, this is a winnable war! I’ll pray for you! 🙂
Thank you for praying for me. I will be praying for you as well.
The enemies tactics will not be victorious……
