For whatever reason you had a particularly lousy Tuesday, whether it be….
….your boss told you, “We won’t be needing you after all”
….the doctors said, “We are out of ideas….”
….your loved one hurled insults and accusations that cut like knives
….you started day one of fourteen days of radiation
….your dear friend ended her own life
or not quite so earth shattering like…..
….the scales refused to budge
….the kids refused to behave
….no one noticed your new skirt
….you are not especially needed by much of anyone these days
Dear friend, no matter what Satan has used….
…….to tell you that God does not care
…….to make you believe that you are alone
…….to convince you that prayer is worthless
…….to trick you into just walking away
it’s only because he knows this truth and he lives in light of this promise….
…”He (God) seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil, or Satan, and bound him for a thousand years, He threw him into the Abyss, and locked and sealed it over him.” Rev. 20:2-3
and knows that in the end….he loses. Forevermore and amen!
And we win… in Jesus we always win. Even if not in this life….then in the next.. we win. In Jesus, we are more than conquerors.
So go to bed now. It’s OK if you need to cry a little. Tomorrow morning the sun will come up, His mercies will be in brand new supply and you will have just enough grace to make it through a Wednesday. You may even find that prayer works after all and while it may not change your circumstances, it can change you. You may just find that even though Tuesday was a loss….Wednesday is a win!
