Squashing the Voice of the Fear of Doom

Normally I try to have these blogs polished and all that, but I wanted to quickly share something that happened yesterday. Do you ever have a really good day? I mean a day where things go above “good”. That was yesterday. I had a three situations where I was encouraged and affirmed and was so thankful that God would use me in such amazing ways. Then “the voice” came.

“You know this is only happening because God is building you up before something really crummy happens.” In seconds, the air started to go out of my balloon. 

But I’m so glad that the Lord has me far enough down my healing journey that now I stand on God’s truth instead of Satan’s lies. Does “life happen? Yes. But not all the time. The Bible says, “So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries.1 If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!2 This is the day the Lord has made. I will rejoice and be glad in it.”3

“The voice” would have won the battle and stole God’s joy from me in the past. Yesterday truth won. I pray you will have victory over the lies and enjoy God’s blessings as well.
