I believe that one of the lies we often face is that we are the only one fighting against the devil. The devil likes to isolate us and make us think that we are the only one going through what we are going through.
The truth is, we are all fighting. You’re not the only one who gets weary. You’re not the only one who gets tired of standing and resisting Satan’s lies and even resisting your own feelings.
I have to fight the good fight of faith just like you do. And there are countless other believers standing with you against the enemy.
Best of all, God is with you every step of the way. Isaiah 43:2 promises that we’ll make it through trying times because God Himself goes with us. When we go through the waters, we won’t drown, and when we go through the fire, we won’t be burned, all because He is with us.
So be encouraged. Press on. God will give you strength and wisdom for every battle you face.
Prayer Starter: God, thank You for being with me and for all Your followers who are also fighting against the enemy. I won’t believe the lie that says I am alone. You are faithful and always with those in the body of Christ.
