I’ve learned that right when you’re about to come out of your wilderness, that’s when the devil attacks you the most. He does this because he knows that once you come out of your wilderness, you will be closer to your destiny.The devil doesn’t want you to get to your God-given destiny because he is already predestined for destruction. And if he can’t have prosperity, then he doesn’t want anyone else to have it. So his goal is to drag down as many people as he possibly can. And the devil used to be one of the most esteemed angels in heaven, which means he knows God’s word – and he knows how to manipulate it into something that it’s not.
But there’s this verse that I’ve stored in my heart this year; it’s Psalm 56:3. It says, “Whenever I am afraid, I will trust in you,” (NKJV). At the time, I didn’t realize how much this verse would mean to me, but now, it has become my anthem.
David wrote this Psalm when he was afraid after he fled from Saul and the Philistines seized him in 1 Samuel 21. Although David was scared, he continued to trust in God regardless of what the situation looked like.
I have chosen to model after David. He wasn’t perfect. He was just as broken and messed up as many of us are. And yet, God chose him to be King. God saw something in David. He saw faith.
So even in my brokenness, I will continue to put my trust in God. The question is: Will you?
