Ugh! My mind was awhirl. I awoke way to early, hit with a reminder of one of the previous day’s failures, something I should not have said, or should have said or done differently, followed by a full-blown attack with me as the punching bag.
When this happens, we can evaluate what is true and decide what to do differently in the future, including whether an apology is needed. But, when our mind continues to hit the ‘replay’ button, we need to move from defense to offense!
Reading or quoting Scripture against our enemy is powerful. It was the weapon Jesus used when tempted by Satan in the wilderness. Other times we find victory in reminding the enemy who he is talking to. Hit it!
