Guilty. Big time. In fact, I really do feel as if I’m heading in 14 different directions. My infinite loop of busyness has been so overwhelming for so long now, I have finally hit my wall. And that is when I found this very message in my email inbox. Coincidence? I think not. This spiritual slap in the face was a reality check that 1) I haven’t been to church since the new year, and 2) I don’t pray as much as I used to — including not utilizing my prayer journal as often as I originally planned — amongst so many other burdens. This current schedule of mine hasn’t allowed time for solitude and moreover, I’ve been slacking in overall health as well. That is the definition of a deadly combination and is by all means not sustainable over time. I want out of this spiderweb — immediately.
Clearly I’ve become a victim of being trapped under Satan’s yoke and Jesus is delicately redirecting my line of vision with a friendly reminder of what is more important. Which is my relationship with Him, of course!
“Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.” ~ Ephesians 6:11 NIV
I need to put on my full armor of God so that I can have the strength and courage to keep going, to stand against the devil’s schemes, trials and tribulations.
If you are feeling tested, stressed, and/or completely overwhelmed like I have been, perhaps you also need to redirect your line of vision… Recharge your batteries by putting on His armor — because all things are possible through Him who gives you strength (Philippians 4:13).
