Don’t Take the Bait! [Strong Christian Encouragement]

To my brothers and sisters in the Lord:

During my prayer time this morning I felt like I heard this question in my spirit—


If you had a common enemy, would you not stand against him?


That got me thinking about the widening political divide. We cannot be ignorant of the devils schemes. We have a common enemy— the devil! And he’s baiting us into war! People are not our enemy, the devil is. Hear God’s Word:

“Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.

Are you happy? I mean deep inside where no one else sees. If not, you are not alone. We’re all running and chasing after happiness. Sometimes we catch up to her and enjoy her sweetness. Other times, she seems a million miles away and we’re left feeling abandoned and discouraged. There are also times she seems so close we can see her face, and yet each time we grab hold of her hand she slips away. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could find her, hold on, and never be separated from her? Is this wishful thinking?

“I have set the LORD always before me. Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.”— Psalm 16:8

When you feel alone, unsteady, frazzled, shaken up, pushed to your limits and even crushed, cling to this promise from Psalm 16:8, as if clinging to God Himself:

“I have set the LORD always before me. Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.”

Now, press on with eyes fixed on Jesus, believing that He loves you, is walking beside you, and working ALL things for your good, and for His glory!
