Getting Low

Sometimes you need to fly low to avoid the snags and entanglements of this world. Satan wants us to fight, he likes nothing better than a chance to toss our struggles right back in our face and say -You can not beat this, you can not win this battle, this sin is way bigger than you. He is right, on our own we will eventually wear down and fall victim to temptation. Christ offers us freedom from the things that drag us down. While we get low and crawl out of harms way He steps in, takes our place and the fight is over. Father God, my prayer is that you would reveal the weaknesses in my life and allow me to turn them over to you. Dig into those deep places, the strongholds, and areas that have been hidden. Help me to stay low, trust, and through you find victory. Help me to desire what you desire, love what you love, and find joy in in what you find joy in. Amen

Romans 8:31-39 (New International Version)

31 What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? 33 Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. 34 Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? 36 As it is written:
“For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”
37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[b] neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
