We know that we have failed. The enemy knows that we have failed. God knows that we have failed. How are these failures viewed? As born again believers we can still feel condemnation. The accuser will continue to accuse. But what does God say? In Numbers 22 the people of Israel are wandering in the desert amidst many failures. Nonetheless, when Balaam is asked to curse them he is overpowered by God who proclaims blessing, victory, and honor despite the previous, grievous shortfalls. We must press in to God and pray always that we would see ourselves how God sees us. Jesus is mightier than our accuser. He lives, reigns, and intercedes for us! Despite our failures, he will give us the faith, power, and righteousness that we so desperately need. Go with God today!

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

Ephesians 6:10-13
