Frozen By Design
I’ve always been a very decisive guy. I typically see things real clearly. However, you get enough thrown your way and your mind is gonna hit overload. I’m just not physically, mentally, or emotionally where I can handle much more. I literally feel frozen as pain limits me, medication fogs me, and life’s demands overwhelm me.
All I can do is what I can do. One, I can pray continuously. Two, I can ask others to pray with me. Three, I can take one God led step at a time. Four I can ask for help from family and friends. Last but not least, I can trust God fully with both the now and later.
One thing I do know for sure. Satan wants to freeze us all. He does this by feasting on our doubts, fears, and even past failures. He whispers constantly in our ears “What if this and what if that?” He wants us to be so distracted and discouraged that we quit moving forward by faith. It’s at this time you must immediately drop to your knees and say the following heartfelt words to your enemy. In the Mighty name of Jesus get thee behind me satan.
“Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. Stand firm against him, and be strong in your faith. Remember that your family of believers all over the world is going through the same kind of suffering you are. In his kindness God called you to share in his eternal glory by means of Christ Jesus. So after you have suffered a little while, he will restore, support, and strengthen you, and he will place you on a firm foundation.”
(1 Peter 5:8-10)
