If I have gotten anything from Beth Moore, it is this…the enemy will ALWAYS strike after a close walk with God.
I can’t believe I wasn’t prepared for it.
God tried to prepare me for it. Tried to warn me. I felt the urge to be in my bible all day yesterday…into the evening. And I just didn’t make the time for it. I was actually up and about a bit and I needed to get this and that done and suddenly, AI was over and my man needed to get some rest and out went the lights and in came the darkness.
It took me four hours to figure it out.
It took a particularly insidious thought to jerk me to the reality that I was being stalked and I had to immediately cry out to God…like a babbling idiot I started whispering aloud any and all scripture that came to my mind.
The one that took root was,
1 The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.
2 He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
3 he restores my soul.
He guides me in paths of righteousness
for his name’s sake.
4 Even though I walk
through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me
I repeated it over and over along with Psalm 63 which is the only bit of scripture I have managed to memorize.
I foresee a really difficult time coming up and I am going to have to stay faithfully in His word, in my current bible study, and just sticking to Him like glue!
