when Satan hits hard...
When Satan hits hard... be still.
When evil attempts to prevail... stand firm.
When hurt and sorrow and frustration and pain overwhelm... wait on the Lord to renew your strength.
When the lion prowls, when the snake slithers, when the arrows fly, when the trial comes... stop and rejoice through the tears.
God will fight for you!
God will see you through.
Keep praying and trusting.
The Lord is in control.
THE LORD IS IN CONTROL!
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. (Ephesians 6:10-17)
