She Bear

IMG_0627

 
Do you hear the mocking voice of the enemy?

 

You’re not loved. You’ll never do this. You’re ugly. You’re fat. You can’t do that. You’ll never overcome that. It’s too big. Why are you wasting your time? Worthless. Stay in bed. Why try? How you gonna pay for that? He’s gonna fail you…

 

And on and on. And on.

 

Elisha heard some mocking voices. 

 

They were calling him names. Taunting him. Laughing. Scoffing. Making fun. 

 

2 Kings 2:24 And he turned back, and looked on them, and cursed them in the name of the LORD. And there came forth two she bears out of the wood, and tare forty and two children of them.

 

I’m gonna challenge you:

 

Bring out the she bear in you! 

 

Rise up with all your strength. Fight with all you got. Silence these voices.

 

Hear the truth of God’s word:

You are loved with an everlasting love. Jesus died for you. Not so that you could live a depressed anxious worried life, but to thrive. To be alive. Have joy. You are beautiful. A precious daughter of the King. Our Lord does not look at your outward appearance. He sees the heart. Your heart that beats for Him. Shines for Him. Wants to please Him. You will overcome. Because He overcame. He overcame death. That same power that rose Jesus Christ from the dead resides in you. Nothing you do for Him is ever a waste. It is precious to Him. He sees it all. Nothing goes unnoticed by Him. He who sees in secret will reward you openly. You are valuable. Your life is precious to Him. No matter what season you find yourself in, He has purpose for you. Jesus will always provide for you. You’ll always have enough. Because He is enough to sustain you. He will never let you go. 

Jesus never fails. 

Now rouse yourself up.

Work double time.

The Lord has need of you.
