How much does God care about what we are going through? He sees our difficulties and promises to never abandon or leave us. But do we believe Him or do we believe our emotions? It’s pretty easy for the enemy to manipulate our emotions to feel abandonment and then whisper lies that God doesn’t care. “Because… Read more »

How do we handle painful situations? Too often we seek the Holy Spirit’s comfort, even as we embrace the enemy’s lies. Letting the enemy lie and steal, while waiting for God to swoop in and rescue us from our situations. But God’s already shown a light on our path: We have to reject the lies (2 Cor. 10:5)….
