The human spirit is resolute. The Maker made it that way. The Destroyer who has lied to us from the beginning wants us to doubt our inner strength. The Destroyer wants us to doubt the fact that the Maker loves His creation and is on our side. That is the first lie we were told.
The Destroyer spreads lies, doubt, and fear. It is his age old craft. The Destroyer is convincing because he has many collaborators (knowing and unknowing).
We are in uncertain times. The Destroyer loves this. We hear conflicting information and we don’t know who to believe. No one seems trustworthy. We struggle at times trusting even ourselves.
Step away from the headlines, news feeds, and twenty four hour reports. Lay down your devices. Go outside.
Silence yourself. Hear the birds. Feel the wind. Listen to those last few rain drops spattering from the roof to the ground. Look down at the ground. Look up at the sky.
There it is: peace and calm. Let your mind and soul rest a moment from all the chaos. See the bird. She does not know to be worried. Watch her work. Hear her sing. Isn’t her song lovely?
Her Maker and Provider is yours.
Take a deep breath. That’s it! Take another slow, deep breath. Listen to the whispers from the Maker. He speaks TRUTH in LOVE.
Let it drown out:
Your spirit was made with it!
If the Lord had not been on our side— Psalms 124:1
