Peace family, I just want you to know that no matter how alone you might feel today, God has not abandoned you. He is a warrior, and he is fighting for you.
Sometimes the negativity in our lives can feel overwhelming. We feel left behind, rejected, abandoned, unwanted, or our own sins get us isolated. Once the devil gets something into your mind, especially if it’s a lie “taught” to you by your family of origin, it can wreak devastation in your life. Peace family, that is NOT your destiny. Your destiny is victory in Christ!
The Bible says that in Christ, you are a new creation. It says that God chose to take the punishment for your sins, that Jesus did not consider his divinity something to be grasped, but humbled himself, and accepted scorn, affliction and death, even torturous death on a cross. He knew and did no sin, but took all of our sin upon himself, so that we could be made clean and acceptable before God when we turn our lives over to him.
Yes, fighting to obey God is hard. Yes, we are often born into tragic and difficult situations. But Christ himself was “a man of sorrows,” and not esteemed by anyone, even though he deserved to be. Lean into him. Trust him. Give yourself to him. Trust that his plan is better than what the devil tells us we want.
God loves you! He will not leave you like an orphan. He is fighting on your side.
Peace family, be encouraged today. When something tells you that you are worthless, tell it that no, you are worth dying for. The Creator of the Universe knows your inmost heart, and he is fighting for you. He is in your court and by your side. He is not going anywhere.
