Regardless of how we may try and appear to the world, every person has an Achilles heel. That one thing that makes you feel so weak, you don’t think you’ll ever muster the strength to overcome it. And on this faith walk, you have an adversary desiring to bruise your heel at whatever chance he can get.
Knowing you have a weakness and choosing to ignore it, makes you an optimal target for the enemy. It’s the equivalent of knowing a ditch is up ahead, but you still choose to swerve into it. You must come to acknowledge the weakness, and invite God into it. Only the enemy would want you to hide your weakness from God. For he knows that where God’s light shines, the darkness can no longer overcome it. (John 1:5)
In that place of weakness, you must seek the grace of God to be your strength. Let your seek be so intentional, that your heart weeps at the idea of separation from God. Get into the stance where you demand that NO sin shall have dominion over you. Allow the graces of God, to help you overcome and bruise the head of the enemy.
“And I will put enmity (open hostility) Between you and the woman, And between your seed (offspring) and her Seed; He shall [fatally] bruise your head, And you shall [only] bruise His heel.” Genesis 3:15 AMP
“Establish my footsteps in [the way of] Your word; Do not let any human weakness have power over me [causing me to be separated from You].”
Psalm 119:133 AMP
“But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.”
2 Corinthians 12:9 NIV
