Feeling insignificant is something I struggle with every day. I must remind myself that I am a child of God. I don’t need to feel little or alone. I am not alone. In a world so full of people living for themselves and material things, “I don’t belong.” This is a common theme in my thoughts. It requires me to remind myself that I was not created for this world, I was created to fulfill God’s promise. I have a purpose. God doesn’t create mistakes
Talking with God throughout my day is easy to do when it is sunny and bright; when events are fluid and every one I love seems happy and at peace. Other days when I really need to talk to him, the words come less easily. Why is that?
There is a great strategist at work in the world trying to steal as many souls as possible. It is Satan. He preys on us when we have tough days. He whispers in our ears untruths and distracts us from our Father, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. They are always with us and especially on those hard days, ready to hold us up, help us through, and bring us peace.
Praying Every Day is a defense against the strategist. His demon soul only finds a way in when we don’t have habits that protect us from his games — we can fall victim. “Get thee behind me Satan!” Jesus spoke these words and so can you! Satan has no power over you! You have all the power through our heavenly Father. You don’t have to be fancy in what you pray. Just pray.

"Draw your strength from the Lord and from his mighty power. Put on the armor of God so that you may be able to stand firm against the tactics of the devil. For our struggle is not with flesh and blood but with the principalities, with the powers, with the world rulers of this present darkness, with the evil spirits in the heavens. Therefore, put on the armor of God, that you may be able to resist on the evil day and, having done everything, to hold your ground. So stand fast with your loins girded in truth, clothed with righteousness as a breastplate, and your feet shod in readiness for the gospel of peace." — Ephesians 6:10-15
