Numb

Alone, afraid

There was no one

No one to hear her crying pleas

She knew she was already defeated

She was completely numb to it

She mine as well give in

No

Why claim defeat if it’s not imperative

She could cry out to Someone

Someone that has always watched over her

From the moment she asked Him for forgiveness long ago

She could only achieve victory with His guidance

Does she trust Him enough to help her?

That is the question…

 

Yesterday, the dentist numbed the right side of my cheek so that she could fix a filling. For hours afterward, I had almost no feeling in my cheek or lip.

Being numb reminded me of a Bible study Saturday night, when a gentleman asked how does sin begin/creep in.

Immediately, my mind thought of when we watch television and we begin watching shows or movies that may have one swear or violent scene, but when we continue to watch things like that we can become numb to them to where now we would watch a whole show or movie filled with profanity. (Hopefully not, though)

1 Peter 5:8

“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:”

Satan knows our weaknesses. He won’t hesitate to use them to destroy us.

The longer he uses a certain weakness against us, the more we will become numb to it.

When we feel like we are on the verge of falling into the same sin over and over again, we don’t have to fly a white, surrendering flag. We shouldn’t automatically give in.

James 4:7

“Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”

Exodus 14:14

“The Lord shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.”

We can surrender the battle to God. He will fight for us. He can provide the strength to resist the devil and overcome the numbness.

The question is do we truly trust God to let Him fight our battles?

What battle are you facing today?

Will you give it to God? Will you let Him fight for you?
