We, as humanity, have been through a lot in the past year or so. That can make it feel as if we’re failing, but really we’ve just all been fighting hard.
So remember this, you’re doing better than you know, you’re loved more than you can imagine, and you’re going to get through whatever is in front of you today.
There is nothing you will face this week that’s bigger than your God. No problem. No struggle. No opposition. He can’t be defeated and therefore you can’t be defeated either. Yes, there may be some battles. You may even be wounded. But you will not be overcome.
He’s in the hospital room when the test results come. He’s in the meeting when the announcement is made. He’s in your living room when the person you love slams the front door and walks into the night.
He’s there in the middle of it all, standing with You on the battlefield, promising You that the war isn’t over, the enemy will not win in the end.
It’s okay to let the tears stream down your face, to pound your fists against your pillow, to feel tired and sad and confused. In the middle of it all, hold tightly to what’s true and refuse to let anyone or anything take it from you.
You’re not weak, you’re a warrior fighting a hard battle.
Your story isn’t done, God is still doing a good work in your life.
And it’s not over, you’re an overcomer with hope and a future.
God, in this world we will face battles. We will have struggles. There will be blood, sweat, and tears. But whatever we may face, You promise that we can and will overcome it with You. Give us the strength to keep fighting, the courage never to give up, and the faith to stand firm no matter what happens. We entrust ourselves to You, the One who will deliver us. Amen.
In all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. Romans 8:37
