Have you ever felt like everyone and everything has abandoned you; that you were totally alone and that no one cared what happened to you?
I think everyone of us at some time in our life has felt this way or will feel all alone in this way.
Life can throw us some weird things so and make us feel things we didn’t know we could. I have been in those places and I’m not proud of the bad choices I’ve made because of them. If your not careful it will lead you down some very dark paths.
Despite the people who are trying to help you out of these situations. Sometimes the only one that can help during these battles is God, because what we are fighting isn’t physical it’s spiritual- it’s a battle in our spirit. The devil love to come during those times to get us to think God has forsaken us and will not help, but the devil is wrong.
We can rely on God’s promises in Hebrews 13:5-6 it says “Be free from the love of money, content with such things as you have for he has said, “I will in no way leave you, neither will I in any way forsake you.” “So that with good courage we say, The Lord is my helper. I will not fear. What can man do to me?”
Jesus felt this way also, He felt like God had forsaken Him even while He was doing what the Father wanted Him to do. Mark 15:34 states that “And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, “Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?” Which is interpreted, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”
Our greatest spiritual battles are when the devil tries to get us to give up on ourselves and God, Jesus in the flesh cried out what He felt, but in His Spirit He fought the battle knowing thatGod was with Him no matter what it seemed like on the outside. He won the battle because He cried out to God “into your hands I surrender my Spirit.”
So many times in my life I have had to ask God to help me, so many times I have cried myself to sleep, asking God to fix it- fix me. He has always come through on His promises.
We cannot stop the battles of life from coming, just as we can’t stop a bird from flying over us, but when the battles comes and are fought in our minds we can still fight the good fight by standing on the knowledge of God’s Word and our relationship with Him.
When it comes to our battles in our own minds, we can either allow them to dwell and manifest evil or do what the Word of God tells us to do and that is yo cast down vain imagination and everything that exalts itself against the Word of God. Nothing is obtained freely but we have to fight to obtain victory. Don’t allow the devil to win in your life but allow God to help you fight the good fight of faith.
