Another day. I need to go through my routine. I woke up early to read the Bible and pray. After my devotion, I spent time reading policies and procedures as required by my job as a business trainer.
After reading, I exercised, and I was able to complete the program I set for the day. As early as 6 AM I could already say that my day was productive.
But one thing had been haunting me for the past few weeks, sadness.
I can’t explain why I felt that way and I didn’t want to dwell on the thought, so I made a checklist of God’s blessings in my life. Here are a few things:
I have a loving wife. I am married to the woman I prayed so hard for.
I have beautiful children. My kids are lovely and have always made me proud.
I have the post that I prayed for. I love my job.
I’ve been meeting simple goals. God is taking me from victory after victory.
So, why am I sad?
I couldn’t explain why I felt what I felt, but thinking about how God blessed me gave me hope. God helped me overcome the giants of my past, and I’m sure that He’s not done battling titans for me. All I need to do is to keep the faith.
I am feeling a lot better lately. The Holy Spirit has empowered me to fight the demons in my head. I believe that the enemy is attacking me because God has big things planned for me. I am excited to find out what He has in store for me.
King James Version (KJV)
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
