On those days fear is a stone on your chest and anxiety lines your pockets,
when self doubt is your best friend
and you get tired of walking forward, consider this....
Satan is picking on you.
Leaning in to whisper discouragement,
to stir up words of "I can't do this"
and "I'm not good enough"
or "I am a failure"
Because he knows.
Knows that if you ever threw that stone off your chest,
shook out your pockets,
and got a new best friend -
if you ever realized your potential in Christ
...he'd be ruined.
He only wins if you keep believing lies.
So next time you feel that weight and that doubt,
take it is a compliment.
It just means Satan is scared of what you're capable of.
