Daily Devotional: Time to Arise From Self- Defeat and Oppression

by Tesse Wilson  


What's hurting you?
What's eating you up on the inside?
What is it that is sabotaging your progress?
What is it that stands in the way of your success?

It's something inside of you
Self- destructive thoughts
Wrong ways of thinking
The limits you place upon yourself
The negatives words you dwell on
Rewinding painful memories in your mind
Fearful thoughts about the future
Living in the prison of the past
Worried, confused
Living with a wounded heart
But masking a happy life
Till you suddenly crumble under the pressure
Those around you look in disbelief and ask why
How could this happen to this seemingly happy Christian

It's time to cry out to God
For too long you pretended that you were strong
You fake strength, happiness and peace
You only mask a smile but you are broken and dejected inside
You show a happy face you think everybody wants to see
But if your pillow could speak it tell how many times it got soaked in your tears
If your mirror could speak it would tell how many times you looked with disgust on yourself
Only the discerning would see the broken pieces of your heart
They would see a person weary from emotional and mental battles and struggles
They would see that you have become a prey for the devil, our adversary
They would see that you are oppressed

Precious one!
You are made in the image and likeness of God
Valuable, unique and special
Consider this;
Many times God your loving Father tried to reach out to you
In a song, He even sent someone
But you were blinded and bound by fear, self pity, pride and mistrust
You experienced abuse and betrayal
You feel like you can no longer trust anyone
Afraid that you will be misunderstood you suffer in silence
Child of God it is time to arise from this place of pain
Your Father wants to dry your tears, soothe your fears, and pour his strength into you
Heal your hurts and make you whole
He is near, he waits for you
He would not force himself upon you
You want prayer, but you also want
A shoulder to cry on
An ear to listen
Arms to hold you
Genuine concern for you
A heart to love you unconditionally
You want a true friend
God can send someone, but remember
God is all this and will be so much more to you

Precious one! Jesus loves you
Don't wait
Throw yourself into his open arms
Stay in his embrace
Yield yourself to the Holy Spirit
Let him complete his work in you
You are the clay, He is the potter
Rest assured you are in the best hands
Wounded child, weary child, rest awhile
You will stand, run and soar again
You will do this and so much more
But you must let God work in you
Don't obstruct him, don't oppose him
Surrender to him!
