I let them win!
I got so mad at myself yesterday because I let a person who I know ain’t right get at me. This situation has been brewing for a few weeks and I let my guard down. I have been praying about it and asking God to keep me and I was diligent until I wasn’t. I got comfortable, relaxed and boom, yup one wrong word to me and I forgot all about my prayers, I forgot who has my back. It was only about 5 minutes but my flesh almost rejoiced in its freedom to vent. In my defense I did not let Bam out, I was professional but I got my point across. See the problem? I got MY point across when really, God had already put his plan in motion and did not need me. Can I say I’m ashamed? Even though I acted professional, I knew it was not my fight.
Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. (Ephesians 6:11-13 ESV)
It does not say fight anywhere in this, it says stand firm!
Pray with me that today, I will Trust God in ALL THINGS!
