Take back what he stole from me!

Do you know this song?

I went to the enemy's camp and I took back what he stole from me.
Took back what he stole from me!
Yes, I took back what he stole from me!

He's under my feet
He's under my feet
Satan is under my feet!

I'm trading my sorrows, I'm trading my pain, I'm laying them down for the joy of the Lord!
I'm trading my sicknees, I'm trading my pain, I'm laying them down for the joy of the Lord!

I say Yes Lord, Yes Lord, Yes Yes Lord!

Do you know that song?
I love that song. If u really let it sink it, it is so true. We have the ability to take back EVERYTHING that the devil stole from us. Whether it is emotional, physical, or spiritual. Its up to us. God gave us the ability to make choices. God gives us His strength to back us up. So if we are leaning on God, there is no way the devil will be stronger than us. We just have to make the choice to follow God instead of following our own selfish ways. Sometimes that is easier said than done, but it is certainly worth striving towards. Don't you agree?

Have u ever been fatigued?

In 1 Samuel chapter 30 it tells the story of David destroying the Amalekites. But before he did that, the Amalekites had raided and plundered his people, and took all the wives and children with them. When David and his 600 men set out to find them, they had to cross a river. However, 200 of them were too fatigued to do this. They stayed behind while the 400 continued on searching for the Amalekites. When they did find them, they won the battle and got all their wives and children back, PLUS all the spoils and riches of the Amalekites. When the men traveled back to meet up with the other 200, David rejoiced in their victory. However, some of the victors (from the group of 400) grumbled that because the 200 had not participated in the battle they should only receive their families back and not any of the riches. David said no. They were a team and they would behave as a team. If some stumble, the others help. If some guard the equipment, while others fight, they still all rejoice.

There are times in everyone's life when they get a bit fatigued and may need the help or aid of someone to get them through. Remember, YOU can be that person to help them.

In life, there will always be some who get fatigued. We need to work together as a team. We don't leave them behind. When I am at the gym, and I start to get drained, my teammates cheer me on and boost me up. They support me in my time of need. We need to do this to everyone we meet. Help them in their time of need.

If someone lost a job or is them.

THEY are fatigued.

They need the help of those who are still fighting the battle, just like David and his men.

Don't let an opportunity pass you by to be a blessing to someone else.
