Abundant Life

Life can be brutal these days. Our fast-paced lives often leave us depleted and exhausted. It is in that state that the enemy moves in, sidling up next to us and whispering lies. He is intent on dragging us down to his level.

We single women have a unique tender spot the enemy loves to prod when he moves in. He’ll spin tales of how God doesn’t love you because He hasn’t given you a husband. Wouldn’t life be easier if you were part of a couple?

Those falsehoods are just words that are blown away on the wind of God’s voice beckoning us to join Him. He offers not only life but abundant life. This life has nothing to do with marital status or bank account balance. It’s found in the resting and trusting in Him that our life makes sense, and when life is based on the sense the Lord provides, the enemy has no power.

So, the next time life gets overwhelming and the enemy slithers in, turn away. Lean into God and find the abundant life He promises.
