Have you experience defeat?
Have you ever felt defeated even before the competition started? Was there ever a time you were out to accomplish something and at the onset you felt like you were headed for defeat. That somehow all your planning and strategy were all going awry.
My friend, God did not create you for defeat. He did not make you a looser. He doesn’t reveal every time we lose a battle. Each day life brings to us many battles. Some of them major and most of them minor or trivial. What we don’t realize is the subtle approach of the enemy to make us think that “it’s okay to lose daily the tiny battles as long as we win the big ones.
This is a lie. He is conditioning your mind and creating a mindset of complacency as he eats away at our defense. It’s not okay to lose even the tiniest of battles. It’s not okay to give in to defeat and allow the enemy a foothold. Before we know it we’ve allowed him to condition our minds. Then it becomes a mindset.
Never give in to the Devil! There is no good in him.
His ultimate plan is your destruction. Don’t allow discouragement to set in, remember God is the strength of your life. He wants to show Himself strong on your behalf, lets cooperate and give the LORD all the room He needs in our life.
Psalm 27: 1-3
1 The Lord is my light and my salvation—
whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life—
of whom shall I be afraid?
2 When evil men advance against me
to devour my flesh,[a]
when my enemies and my foes attack me,
they will stumble and fall.
3 Though an army besiege me,
my heart will not fear;
though war break out against me,
even then will I be confident.
Psalm 27: 5-6a
5 For in the day of trouble
he will keep me safe in his dwelling;
he will hide me in the shelter of his tabernacle
and set me high upon a rock.
6 Then my head will be exalted
above the enemies who surround me;
You are not destined for defeat, but for victory.
