Good morning and happy Wednesday to you! I was sharing my current life "storms" with a friend the other day and she said something to me that gave me a different perspective.
"You must be doing something right because the devil sure is trying to work on you."
I had been so consumed with my circumstances that I never considered that it could be satan trying to trip me up. That is his goal, you know - to keep our minds focused on everything else, anything else besides God. It took that reminder from my friend to awaken me to be very cautious of satan's schemes.
The negative thoughts, the feeling of hopelessness, helplessness, dread and confusion - all schemes of satan.
It is time to stop - stop allowing him in my mind, in my thoughts, in my actions, in my words.
Get behind me satan. I am a follower of Christ. I am a child of God and I want no trace of you in my life!!
Say it with me - I refuse to allow satan any hold in my life. I refuse to believe satan's lies when I know the Word of God to be true. I will trust in God because He is my Creator, my Father, and my Savior. He loves me and wants the best for me and satan only wants to destroy me.
Do you feel empowered? You should, the Creator and Sustainer of the Universe LOVES you!!!
James 4:7 Submit therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.
Living fearlessly in Christ
