Winners in the Battle
The attack of double weariness has been battled and won by God's people for centuries. When David and his men found Ziklag burned and their families taken captive, the Bible says they wept until they had no strength left.

David's loyal men turned on David in bitterness and wanted to stone him. The Bible shows how David resisted the attack: "[He] encouraged himself in the Lord his God" (1 Sam. 30:6, KJV). As he chose to trust the Lord, God's "double peace" strengthened him. He sought God, won the battle and recovered all.

The great Old Testament prophet, Elijah, won a huge battle against Jezebel and her false prophets. He should have rejoiced and basked in the victory. Instead, when Jezebel threatened to kill him, Elijah succumbed to mental weariness.

Exhausted by the constant mental battle, he asked God to let him die. He needed another voice to silence the threats of Jezebel—God's voice. It came in a gentle whisper, bringing him hope and direction. And as the voice of the Lord came to Elijah, the double weariness left him, and he received his marching orders to fulfill his destiny (see 1 Kin. 19:1-16).

This may be the age of terror, but it's not a time for you to be distracted, discouraged or dismayed. God has a destiny for you! But the voices of the world, the devil and yourself will continually harass you unless you say "no" to terror's voice.

It's time to silence the other voices and let the renovation process begin! If you have been living a mentally defeated, exhausted life, the double cure is for you.

Choose the better thing, as Mary did, and submit to the discipline of the Word of God. Set your mind on things above. Spend time daily reflecting on Jesus, and soon you'll be reflecting His glory from the inside out.

Then the double peace of God will guard and keep you in all your ways. Instead of double weariness, creativity will abound, and thoughts of terror and dread will be far from you. Now, that's a double victory!
