O God, don’t stay away. My God, please hurry to help me.
But I will keep on hoping for your help; I will praise you more and more. Psalm 71:12,14
Everything will try to wear us down but nothing has the right to change what God called us to do. There is no reason to give in just because we are unable to change the situation.
The enemy will ridicule, lie and oppose – that’s his role and he will play well. We can’t pray to God that enemy will quit doing his job or change his mind, but we must learn to pay no-attention to him and his threats.
When we know God alone can deliver us, why we should allow the enemy to wear us down? When we know God is faithful and He won’t delay, why we urge Him to hurry? When we know the enemy is determined to destroy our hope, why should we give up our hope?
We must continue to hope in God because it is the best way to frustrate the enemy. We must praise our God more and more because it is the best way to torment the enemy!
Say to those with fearful hearts,
“Be strong, and do not fear, for your God is coming to destroy your enemies. He is coming to save you.” Isaiah 35:4
