30- November Knock and Keep Knocking
Proverbs 18:14 The human spirit can endure a sick body, but who can bear a crushed spirit?
No one likes to be sick, but most of us would prefer it to being crushed, depressed and heartbroken. The enemy knows this. That’s why he keeps the pressure directed against our thoughts. The battlefield really is in the mind, and the enemy’s objective is to crush us by using our own thoughts against us.
The good news is that we can prevent a crushed spirit. We can keep the enemy from getting close to our hearts. But we cannot let our guard down for a minute. That’s why the Word says to guard our hearts with all diligence. We cannot be crushed when our hearts are filled with the Word and our minds are focused on God’s promises. Keep your guard up!
• I am strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.
• By faith I guard my spirit, soul and body with the Word of God.
• My defense is sure. I will not be crushed, depressed or in despair, ever!
