This past week, the devil has tested my faith more times than I can count on my own two hands. You can ask any of my friends and they would agree too (trust me, they’ve heard all about it). When times get tough like this, all I know to do is to write it out in words and give it to God.
Now I’m not gonna sit here and tell you every little thing that has happened this week, but I will say I’m having to type this from my computer because my phone crashed on my way back to school IN MY MOMS CAR because my car is messed up too 🙂 just a little piece of it.
But it’s in the lowest times in life when I trust God the most. While driving to Starkville tonight, I thought about how just the smallest things can get us so far down and make us feel like we have nothing left; when in reality, we have all we’ll ever need in Jesus. He will NEVER leave us or forsake us and the devil has NO PLACE where Jesus lives. It is SO easy to let satan tear us apart and let him think he has control of us. But the closer we are to Jesus, the further we push the devil away. So many times we get so caught up in the world that we forget whose we are and why we’re even here on earth. Our sole purpose is to serve Jesus and Him only. Not our worldly things, not our problems, not anything that the devil puts in our way.
So whenever you feel like your world is falling apart or that the devil has a hold of you, trust in Jesus harder than you ever have. Talk to Him and give Him all of your thoughts, worries and needs. Hold on so tight to Him, for He is the only one who can give you a peace like no other. He is so much bigger than anything we face, especially the devil. We all go through times that we call tough, but nothing is more tough than the One who died for you.
