Stand Tall on Your Knees

Most people think that Satan is the exact opposite of God. In many ways he is. But, for the most part, Satan will use just enough of the truth to get you hooked, then throw you into a lie that you will believe. This is what it means to be "deceived".

1 John 2:15
Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

This world will deceive you into believing that you don't need God in order to survive. The truth is that, without God, you do not even exist to survive. God is permeated in everything. Pushing God aside for what the World offers is inviting death.

When you fail (which you will), there is always hope in Jesus. The World offers no hope. The World likes kicking people when they are down. Only Jesus offers the hand-up that you need to keep going.

So, when you are alone, beaten up by your problems, tired, burdened with stress, heartbroken, frightened, at your weakest and knocked down on your knees, use that to call out to Jesus.

Standing on your knees as you reach out to Jesus will find you taller than you've ever been in your life.

Matthew 11
28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
