“You’re unworthy,” the voice says. “You’ll never make it. Why don’t you just stop trying?”
The battle rages on and on in my brain. Daily Satan tempts me, encouraging me to give up on what is true and right and believe his lies of deceit. His lies are good ones, ones that focus on my own weaknesses and past failures. He knows how to push my buttons.
But I serve a God who is greater than Satan and his lies.
I serve a God who promises to invade my life with peace and joy.
Sometimes, as I walk through a particularly hard day, it’s a continual battle. A continual process of taking those doubts and placing them in the hands of Jesus.
Because I long for peace so much more than strife.
I don’t want to dwell on past mistakes and failures.
I don’t want to remember, once again, how other people have let me down.
Instead I want to focus on how great my God is.
And so I pray, once again, that peace would invade every corner of my heart. Because there’s no better place to be.
