You get knocked down, you get back up again. You gain your strength back and are ready to fight. But what happens when you get knocked back down again…and again, and again. It’s so easy for all your hope to go out the window, to let your mind get the best of you and want to just run the other way. But the only way to win, to get that victory you’ve been longing for is to keep persevering. You might seem so far away from winning that battle you’ve been fighting for for so long. But don’t lose all hope yet. If you turn the other way you are bound to get lost, you are bound to dig your hole even deeper. Don’t let your backslides, don’t let the lies the enemy is putting in your head get to you. You ARE capable. You ARE strong enough. And you and not alone, not even a little.
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:29-31
Reread the bolded words. You will soar on wings like eagles. You will, not you might, but you WILL soar. You will be free just like an eagle from whatever is troubling you, from whatever is bringing you down, holding you back. All your bondages will be broken, just keep going. Your strength will be provided to you. Ask Him for it and He won’t let you down. He keeps His promises. You aren’t a loss cause, you aren’t hopeless…you are strong, you are a fighter. And this battle can show you just how capable you are. Raise up the army inside you and run toward your freedom with all you have. It can be scary, it can be hard, and it might be the longest fight of your life. But you can do it, don’t give up on yourself.
