What Satan fears most is a child of God in prayer. It’s no wonder that he distracts them by putting thoughts like, “It’s no use fighting anymore. You are too weak.”
The devil wants you to take your eyes off the victory of the cross. He wants to turn your focus onto your weaknesses, your sins, your shortcomings. He wants to make you believe you aren’t strong enough to go on. Your strength, however, is not the point - You must remember Jesus is your strength, your victory. Jesus has given you weapons that are for pulling down strongholds (2 Corinthians 10:3-5).
We have been equipped with weapons that Satan cannot withstand: The Word of God, prayer, fasting and faith. Above all, Jesus is with you to fight the battle on your behalf. STAND BOLDLY! STAND FIRM! You will see the victory soon!

Jesus came the first time as a Sacrificial Lamb. John the Baptist said, "Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world."
Just as surely as He came the first time as a Lamb who was slain for the sin of the world, He will come back the second time as a Conquering Lion.
The second coming of Christ will result in His kingly reign. The lion and the lamb are opposites. One is known for meekness, the other for majesty and power. Jesus came to earth like a lamb to show God's gentleness and kindness and will return as a Lion with the majesty of a king to rule and judge His people. Aren’t you excited that all the corruption of this world, the injustice, the pain and suffering will one day cease?

NEVER GIVE UP!
Are you feeling depressed? anxious? feeling like life is way too much and overwhelming? like you cannot handle another second more of it? Please! oh please! do not give up! You can do this my friend! This life is so quick (I know it doesn't feel like that, but it is!) Our future with Jesus will last for all eternity.... ETERNITY! this life is just a tiny spec of time and then it’s over! You will get through this. You can win this race! Take a hold of Jesus’s hand and never let go no matter what! Whether you get angry, sad, depressed or make a mistake always turn to Jesus for he has promised never shall he leave or forsake us, he shall forever be with us! Things may seem chaotic right now and feel like Jesus’s return is mountains away but let me just say that our God moves mountains! He can make a mountain move in an instant, and his coming will happen in the blink of an eye. Just simply blink your eyes...
That is how quick.
We must not give up and await his coming no matter how long it is. We must also be ready for our own departures for we are never promised tomorrow and we want to have Jesus with us every moment, every minute, every second of our life so for when we leave this Earth, we will enter eternal paradise with our Amazing, incredible, Lord Jesus!
Things may be rough right now, but just imagine this:
*You enter into Heaven and the Angels shout with Joy, playing beautiful music and Jesus’s smile lights up the entire room gazing at you with just utter joy and happiness as you are finally home with him. All he has ever wanted for you, and now you get to be happy forever and be with Jesus for all eternity!*
Praise God! what joy we have ahead of us! So my friend, please never give up, never surrender, never allow the Devil to snatch away your Eternal life with Jesus for you are worth so much more than this little spec of time. God Bless you and always remember:
Isaiah 41:10 - Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.
Matthew Chapter 11
28Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
29Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
30For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
WE ARE CHILDREN OF GOD!
WE BELONG TO JESUS CHRIST!
