Satan seems to be working overtime, as of late.
In the last week, I have had two women flee to my house from their husbands. Another, woman, called for emotional support, as she had just called the police to have her husband picked up for abuse.
All three women and husbands are serious followers of our Lord Jesus Christ. All three events were brought around by drugs and or alcohol. All three are still struggling. One, the wife, is also bound up by drugs.
We can easily see that Satan has a hand in these marriages. We know the story, "Satan is trying to kill me." "Satan is trying to destroy my life." etc. But, sometimes, those quit being the whole truth and instead become an easy excuse for our own choices.
Being relentless keeps my eyes on God. I can not look to the left or the right. To drugs or to alcohol. Because if I do take my eyes off of my object of pursuit, I will fall, stumble, lose sight of my God.
I grew tired in my dream. When the fatigue set in, I could have, by choice, stopped or slowed down. Then, my eyes will begin to take in the world that is around me. My pursuit, might, take on a whole new look and track. Feeling fatigued and resting I see what the world has to offer and just might, by choice, take those things to pursue, instead of God. After all, the things of the world are easily gotten, easily seen, easily excused away.
In these end times, we certainly need to be relentless. Satan is working overtime, in that I am sure. But, we are victorious over the things of Satan and the only way we can fall prey to Satan's schemes is by making a choice to turn to him instead of God. We play an important role in the fight for our soul's, it is a role of choice. Satan does not get all the glory for the misstep of God's people.
So, I can either be relentless in my pursuit of God or I can be relentless in my pursuit of drugs, alcohol, sex, crime, food etc. I can either say "no" to the things of this earth, or I can say 'Yes" to God. It is easy to get caught up in the things of this world, but once you do, you need to take responsibility for that and fight your way back to the one who loves you. In your fighting, BE RELENTLESS.
