The bigger they are…….the harder

Am I a dog, that thou comest to me with staves?Goliath

Seeing the last couple of days I just wonder why we rebel to satisfy the flesh.

Notice then this giant who has never lost a battle,he has no idea what the word lose means,he is a seasoned warrior well versed in the art of war.Much like my self a seasoned warrior of the word,and I should, no, I must be able to stand against any attack and temptation that the adversary throws my way.

But the accuser of the brethren knows me more than I know me,he is somehow able to exploit that very weakness that I have been trying to bury for the longest of time.

And I know there is the spirit man inside screaming so loud to just
stop

When did it come to this why do I do that which I don’t want to do and that which I want to do I do not.

Not only have my decision made me let myself down,above all else I have left HIM down and not to mention her and them.

Oh I need some help here.

Was I too arrogant?
Was I too overly optimistic?
Was I too careless?

Did I not heed the warning?
Did I think the old me had disappeared?

Neither give place to the devil. Eph 4 v 27

We are warned clearly to steer away from giving foothold, but somehow we still do.When are we to learn?

How is it that a season saint (or maybe not so seasoned,as it stands) would go into battle without his armour on?
Have we become Goliaths in our arrogance that we ask if were dogs?

Even David himself knew better,he would rather be chastised by God himself.And he is the one that brought down the giant. When are we to learn?

Heavenly Father I dropped the ball here,
And I ain’t sure how to get out of this one,the guilt and the shame of it all.
Where does one even begin?
But I know what I need to do here,at least I should,run back home to him.

I just wonder how many Goliaths are out there?
How many of us drop the ball just by simply underestimating the challenges we face?
Ignoring the simple problems till they eat away to the very core.

Someone once said the important bit is to get up again after a fall,that the defeat is in staying down.

Someone dear to me just sent this
“I always think that no matter hw big the situation may seem it can still be defeated and great is our victory bcoz the great one lives in US and we shall conquer the world…” – that was needed today.

Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. 1 John 4 v 4

Ah!! Yes

The bigger they are…….. the harder

  1. Grace. Each morning is a new dose of grace for us. Sometimes we get knocked down. But, what we fail to see is that each time it takes more for us to get knocked down. We only see that we have failed. We do not see the spiritual battle that took place to get us there. Where it once took a half a demon to knock us down, it may take a whole squadron to make us trip now. Be encouraged. God knows the very deepest part of your heart and I am certain He is well pleased.

  2. We all make bad choices in life. Some so small that the only person who sees them in God and the only person who feels them is ourselves. But we have only failed when we fail to get again and start that path in front of us. As for Lucifer that old devil, God gave him strength to bruise man’s heel but we have the strength to stand on his head.

    • Amen to that Bev ( sorry can I call u Bev?)

      You know the more I hear this the better.At times in your trial and guilt one gets so isolated and it’s when the attacks come,

      Condemnation,guilt and regret all bundled up in one,
      And when one is far away from other “saints” that’s when one is more vulnerable.

      But Thank God For the internet and the iPhone 🙂

      • I have an even better one, which i am extremely good at . It goes something like is – someone else sins against you and yet you think you are accountable for it and feel bad/sad because of it!

  3. I have had to face both deep sorrow and deep shame because of wrong choices I have made in my life. God, in He grace gave me time to grieve, and then He asked me If I believed His word that tells me “I am forgiven” ? And I do.
    Here’s one of my favorite verses ..”I tell you, her many sins have been forgiven; that’s why she loved much. But the one who is forgiven little, loves little.” Biblically speaking, we are in good company. God Bless! PS. I think you are going to do just fine! Refined Silver!

  4. When I think I am strong, have the answers – then I don’t need his hand – then I am vulnerable.
    When I think I cannot, have nothing to offer – then I hold his hand – then I am strong (like right now this very evening as I type this – holding tight and finding I can)
    And when I think about it all – then my brain explodes! 🙂

      • Not my thought – never my thought when another needs. Just this:

        When you grow in Him, you grow in you. Knowing is growing. Let slip the hand we hold so tight. Walk alongside – so very right. Hand in hand like lovers do. On ice I slip, in pooh I slide. Then grip His hand again hold again tight. Last night in poop so sh**et I held, looking ahead and gripping tight. One step and another and slowly it came right. Then I looked back. Then I had sight

        (He says stop writing. He is holding you. I know.)
