If God Is In Control, Why Is My Life Such a Mess?

FOR YOUR GIFT OF ANY AMOUNT

As Christians, we will face opposition because of our faith. A neighbor might snub us, for example, or a co-worker may ridicule us. In the middle of these attacks, we may be tempted to call them the enemy. But our true enemy is spiritual in nature.

Are you under a spiritual attack today? Perhaps Satan is tempting you to sin. Or maybe he is using a broken relationship to grow seeds of bitterness in your soul. Whatever tactics the enemy uses to try to trip us, we have no reason to fear because we have God on our side.

We will face opposition because of our faith.

 
In Psalm 27, we see that David trusted God to provide protection and strength.

The Lord is my light and my salvation—whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life—of whom shall I be afraid? When the wicked advance against me to devour me, it is my enemies and my foes who will stumble and fall. Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear; though war break out against me, even then I will be confident. (Psalm 27:1-3)

Prayer: God, help me to trust You for protection and strength in the midst of the spiritual attacks I am facing. I pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.

"The Lord is my light and my salvation—whom shall I fear?" (Psalm 27:1).
