Life can get mighty overwhelming and even somewhat scary from time to time when left to our own devices. Much like ferocious meteorological storms there are life storms. And these personal storms can even match or exceed the massive power of such weather events.
For example, we all have had family members who have died, most of us have dealt with the loss of a job or very special mate, or have suffered the consequences of having made a wrong decision or choice. These are natural occurrences in life. But there are also supernatural occurrences in life. We have to understand that the biggest enemy we will ever face is the devil. He has control over all of our unsaved enemies, all liars, thieves, murderers, and all sinners who oppose our God.
Indeed, they stand against our faith and over all that we as Christians stand for. The point is that even though we know that Jesus really defeated the devil at Calvary some 2,000 years ago that Satan (the devil has not yet been thrown into his final nonresting place.

Our God is most wise and has made us and met all of our needs in Christ.

God’s wisdom and power is so much greater than the devil, his demons, and every person who has ever lived, past, present, and future combined.

How many times have we allowed ourselves to be intimidated by the devil and life circumstances, feeling defeated when we already have the victory in Christ.  We are more than conquerors (Romans 8:37) and there is nothing that we can’t accomplish through him (Philippians 4:13).
God has blessed us to overcome every adversary and challenge we’ll ever face.

It is when our attention is diverted away from God, when we start

establishong ungodly soul ties – listening to the wrong voices (be very careful who you buddy up with), slack off in reading God’s Word and prayer, when we start worrying about the things of this world, comparing ourselves with others, and depending on our natural abilities rather than looking to God for His Supernatural help that we get overwhelmed. Instead of looking through the victorious lense of Jesus we begin to look through our human lense of weakness, doubt, and defeat.

The good news is that when this happens we can turn it around.  Just ask Jesus, if you are in sin, to forgive you, repent (turn away from sin) and ask him to restore you. Return to your ‘first love’
(Jesus).  Reestablish your prayer time, Bible reading, buddying up with the right (Godly) people and having right conversations, not being unequivocally yoked (tied to the wrong people whose desire is to take you away from God), etc.

As unbelievers we were once defeated but now that we are Christians victory is ours.

P. S. This does mean that we don’t have contact with people who are not saved.  We would have lose contact with human society that case. But we must always be vigilant remaining steadfast in our faith while loving people into the Kingdom of God.  While we are not confrontational we are immediately to any spell, whether wittingly or unwittingly the attempt to speak into our lives. When refusing or rebuking what they say we also take every opportunity to strongly but gently correct them.

In and under God’s love, presence, and anointing we desire and are always looking to win more people to Christ. Bur we don’t do it in forceful ways. Our job is to plant seeds and water them as we share the Word of God.
