Stop Fighting Your Rescuer…

08CAA0D0-344A-4F76-BF9D-869BA67EA9FCI remember when I was around 7 or so, someone was teaching me how to swim. He did this by throwing me in the deep end and letting me figure it out. Well today I can swim so I guess it worked.
Life can be that way sometimes can’t it. We feel like we are just thrown in the deep end forced to figure it out on our own. And maybe like with my swimming we could do just that. Figure it all out on our own. But great news for us. We don’t have to. I’ll get to that in a minute.
However we all have things in our life that make us feel less than worthy. Things that weigh us down. Our less than perfect upbringing, the mistakes we’ve made, things others have done to us, being unmarried, being divorced, not able to have children, and more. Things that can make us feel like a failure in life. The enemy wants nothing more than for you to believe that today. He wants you to drown in your deep end of anger, bitterness, sadness, guilt, and regrets. He wants you to believe that you are alone, forgotten by God. Believing that there is little hope of you ever learning how to swim. Then you will just give up and sink down into despair. Then he’s got you. He doesn’t even have to work for it now. We are doing his job for him.
You see Satan is smart. He knows that our human flesh is very weak. Especially when he can get us to give up on God. Get us believing that we are too far gone for God. That our deep end is punishment from God for all our wrong doings. I know this because I almost drowned in mine. I still to this day can’t tell you exactly how I was saved. I just know I was pulled out by God. And trust me I was in way over my head at the time.
I don’t know what you are facing today. I don’t know how deep your water is. I don’t know how much deeper it will get. But I do know that God is waiting to rescue you. Like I had to, you just have to stop fighting against Him. Stop believing Satan’s tricks and lies. (John 8:44) Basically whatever Satan tells you, you can know the opposite is true. So if He is telling you today that you are unloved, unworthy, forgotten by God, you can believe the opposite. You are so loved, worthy of Christ’s blood shed for you, worthy of all your Heavenly Father wishes to give you, and always in Gods thoughts. (Psalm 139:17-18, Psalm 136, Lamentations 3:22-23)
Don’t let Satan win any longer. For Jesus died and shed His blood for you. You my friend are clean. You my friend are already saved. No matter how deep your water is. No matter how long you’ve been just treading water.
Never in the Bible does it tell us to figure it out. It tells us to trust in God. To follow God. To be still and let Him fight for us. That can be difficult for some of us who grew up in the deep end. But it’s so worth doing. Here are are few verses to look up to help you get started.
Joshua 1:9, 2 Samuel 7:28, Psalm 9:10, Proverbs 3:5-6, Romans 15:13. As always I am praying for you. Praying that you stop fighting the one trying to save you and surrender to all He has to offer you. The ultimate life line. ❤️
