He loves to attack in the wee hours of the morning when sleep is evasive.  He reminds you of the worst things you have ever done. In the dark, they seem unbearably terrible.  You feel beaten.  You feel like a complete failure.   Your mind is a giant screen that plays and replays moments you would give anything to forget.

     In the dark, the bills smother you, and the amount of work to be done is overwhelming.   The worry about your children is more intense.

     Fear, regret and self-doubt swirl about. 

     When the sun comes up, it is different. 

     There are mental beatings that take place in the night for all.  There is an enemy who hates you and it seems he has more room to move about in the dark.

     Learn to resist the enemy.  If you pray about this, the Indwelling Holy Spirit will remind you to think on the things God has promised.  You might need to get up and sing.  Or write a note of encouragement to someone.  Memorize a verse.

     Catch it as soon as it starts and recognize what is happening.  Resist and he who intends to harm you will flee.

     Talk to Him about it and do it aloud.   The enemy shouldn't be allowed to get your attention in the same manner again.

     Do it today.
