“The angel said to the women, “Don’t be afraid. I know you are looking for Jesus, the one who was killed on the cross. But he is not here. He has risen from death, as he said he would. Come and see the place where his body was.”
Matthew 28:5-6 ERV
I know the devil keeps telling you that you are not good enough. I know he reminds you of every thing you have ever done. I know he would have you believe that you have messed up so bad that God doesn’t love you or want you. I know the enemy has told you that no one cares and it would be easier for everybody if you stay down. Get high, sniff it, shoot it, sex it, spend it. Whatever your it is, he will entice you to use it in excess.
But I want to remind you that the God we serve loved you so much that He sent his only Son to die on a cross and rise again so that you could have the right to the tree of life. So you can be free, free from your past and your pain. Free from condemnation and sin. Free from anything that would try to enslave you. Remind yourself of this scripture ..
“I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”
Philippians 4:13 KJV
Even if it means saying it over and over in your head until your soul catches up. Don’t ever forget that you can do anything because of the Power of the Holy Spirit that lives in you.
Cry out to God, he will give you what you need to get up from your bed of destruction..
“Lord my God, I prayed to you, and you healed me. Lord, you lifted me out of the grave. I was falling into the place of death, but you saved my life. Praise the Lord, you who are loyal to him! Praise his holy name!”
Psalms 30:2-4 ERV
Then praise his Holy name because he can do it, he can help you get up too.
“Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,”
Jude 1:24 KJV
