Days rush by filled to the max...yet somehow you are hurting inside...
no one knows you're not okay.
Battle Strategy #1- Bring Your Struggle to the Light
* Nothing is too hard for God. Cry out to God and let Him know you are hurting. (Jeremiah 32:27)
* Talk to someone who will pray for you and give you godly counsel.
John 10:10 The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My (God's) purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.
Battle Strategy #2- Recognize the Any Temptation
* When you are hurting, what do you do to try to relieve the hurt?
*The enemy may tempt you to do harmful things when you are hurting.
Ex: Hateful thoughts, Cutting, Self-loathing, Drugs, Alcohol, Escape, Suicide,
* Ignoring your struggle may temporarily help, but you are still carrying the pain.
Philippians 4:8 "Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise."
Battle Strategy #3- Power Exchange... through Prayer
* Tell the enemy to "SHUT UP!"
*Ask God to help you stand up and battle against the enemy's lies.
1 Corinthians 16:13 "Be on guard. Stand firm in the faith. Be courageous. Be strong."
*Ask the Lord to shed light where darkness is trying to take over.
2 Corinthians 4:6 "For God, who said, “Let there be light in the darkness,” has made this light shine in our hearts so we could know the glory of God that is seen in the face of Jesus Christ."
Battle Strategy #4- Fight Back with God's Word
Read Ephesians 6: 11-17 "Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places. Therefore, put on every piece of God’s armor so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm.
Stand your ground, putting on the belt of truth and
the body armor of God’s righteousness.
For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News
so that you will be fully prepared. In addition to all of these,
hold up the shield of faith to stop the fiery arrows of the devil.
Put on salvation as your helmet, and take
the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
