The mothers heart broke as she listened to her daughter’s cries. Faith had just had another fight with her boyfriend and each time the cycle was the same. First anger then such sorrow and pain. How could he continue to do this to her? Each time the fight was about which boy she had talked to, or where she had gone. Why didn’t she answer her phone each and every time he called her? Was she hiding something from him? Was there another guy on the side he didn’t know about?
She thought back to a few months earlier when she had received that phone call at two o’clock in the morning from her daughter. Faith was in total fear. Her boyfriend had hacked into her email and knew that she was conversing with another guy over the internet. He told her he was going to get his gun and kill her because she didn’t deserve to live, she had lied to him. Her daughter was spiraling downward. Why she seemed to need this guy’s approval was mind blowing. He was controlling and manipulative, destructive and unsafe.
Her Father watched as the woman’s emotions spun her into the deep crevice of despair. “I’m a failure!” She cried out, “I can’t do anything right.” “I wish I had never been born” “They would all be better off without me.”
Her Father’s righteous anger was sparked. Why did she listen to the lies of the enemy? Why did she just lay down and submit to the slaughter of her mind, instead of standing and fighting the battle? What had become of the armor He had given her for protection? She was better than this. She was His child, a child of the King! He thought about the future, one day the deceiver would be cast into the lake of fire. One day he would no longer be free to roam the earth like a roaring lion seeking whom he would devour. Till that day God would bide His time. He would strengthen the weak and send encouragers to walk beside and uplift them. He would wait, wait for the time when He could send down His holy anger and annihilate the enemy.
