What to Do When You’re in Trouble?

Somehow, the enemy is always better than us at one thing – the level of treat that you pose.

You may not know it, or feel it, but you are a threat to the enemy’s purpose.

We let our self-doubt get in the way of how we value ourselves.

14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.”

– Psalm 139:14 NIV

Yet, we still don’t value ourselves.

Why? Because it’s easier to loathe yourself.

The only other person that knows you better than yourself is God. You know so many of your own flaws that it’s easy to bring yourself down.

You see all the gaps in your body, your personality. You think of all the ways you are inadequate.

But why don’t we see the positives more than the negatives?

Depression is addictive. Negativity is addictive. Negativity is a stronger voice in your head if it’s just it talking.

Negativity hits you hard when you are stale.

When You’re Trying to Live Your Purposeful Life

When you’re trying to live in your purpose, people will hate on you. The enemy will try to stumble you.

That doesn’t mean God isn’t on your side. That doesn’t mean you aren’t living your purpose. It simply means the enemy is threatened.

Do not let their hate cause an emotional crisis in your spirit. Let it encourage you to continue to work towards your purpose.

It is an indication of your upward progress.

It’s a lot like entropy. When you’re rising to the top, someone’s gonna try to bring you down to bring back balance.

But don’t stay average, God called you to set you apart.

What to Do When the Enemy Hits You?

The enemy knows you are a critical threat.

He doesn’t need people to announce how much of a threat you are. Those who are out to get you will inherently be suspicious.

Be glad to have people hating on you, because if they do, it means they see you as a threat.

But in all of this, do not fret for God is with you.

Call to Action

Keep a journal and write down 1 positive thing about ourselves every day. It has to be a different thing every day. It can be absolutely anything, no matter how small or large it is. It can even be something like “I’m good at cutting my nails” or “I am a fast typist”.

In all things, run to God when people hate on you.

1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.”

– Psalm 46:1 KJV

God bless you!
