Hello everyone! Today, I would like to welcome you to Moments Spent with God! I pray that your day is off to a great start and that you will truly experience the presence of God…deep within your heart and life today!
You know…today, I was thinking on how we become the most vulnerable to Satan’s tactics and that is usually when we are the weakest. Yesterday…as I was finishing up for the day…I was feeling pretty drained, from the work that I had been doing, for most of the afternoon. Later into the day, I received some news that was only a minor matter; but because of how tired I was at the moment; this minor situation began to feel like something enormous. I’m sure that you have probably had days like this too, when life just seems to feel a little more than what it really is.
As I’ve been sitting here…thinking on how that moment caught me by surprise; I also began to think on how Satan can take a weakness in our lives and blow it way out of proportion…making us think that life is so much worse; then what it really is. Satan seems to know that we are the most vulnerable, at a weak moment; so he continues to stalk us…waiting for us to become wounded and broken within; so he can catch us by surprise and attempt to have control over our lives.
I don’t know about you; but when I experience a moment in my day; that makes everything feel out of whack…I find it comforting, to just sit in the quiet presence of God. These moments seem to help the weight of the burden to melt away, while helping me to reconnect with God.
It seems like these last days on earth are becoming more and more of a struggle; but we must remember that as long as we have God in our lives; then these moments that can seem so out of control, can be put back in control, by a God who is so much greater than our weaknesses or the evil that attempts to control our weaknesses.
As I look back on my life, I remember many times in the past, when I would allow myself to be caught up in these moments that seemed so overbearing; but one thing I found out; was that these moments increased in strength…the more I fell prey to them. You see…Satan wants to know that what he is attempting to do to us is working and the way I believe he knows that; is when he sees our actions pointing in the direction of the problem, rather than the direction of God.
We might as well face it…we are going to have moments, when we just don’t see clearly enough, when it comes to the traps and snares that Satan has awaiting us. Even though we lose our connection with God for a moment and fall prey to these weaknesses; there is a God…whose love alone can be the arms of strength we need…to lift us up and out of these pits of despair.
Today, I pray that during the overwhelming moments of a day; we will take the time to quietly reconnect with the One, who can put our lives back into perspective.
Blessings on your day!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him...
