This morning, as I began my morning, I had a phone call to make…and then it would be time to check the ministries website, along with my emails. As I entered my main email account, I noticed that I had a notification from google webmaster tools…a site that I use to collect data for the ministry. As I opened the email, I quickly came to see that I had an urgent problem that needed to be fixed on the website right away. After validating what was wrong on google webmaster tools…so it could be fixed, I left the office to take a mental break…because you see, it has been one thing after another this past week.
After taking a short break…I came back into the office and decided it was time to throw something back in Satan's face… for all that he had attempted to do to me and this ministry; so I began to look through God's word…and as I did, God led me to a Bible verse in John 10:10, which reads… "The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full."
One thing that I have been reminded of this week; is that Satan does have power…not a power as great as God's; but it is a power that is meant to steal, kill and destroy. As I have traveled a long and difficult journey in life, I have found more and more that the one who truly remains faithful to God will be attacked in this way…but at the same time we must not allow our minds to be grounded within these thoughts. We must remember that Jesus not only went to the cross to love…save and forgive; but to also give us life more abundant. In other words…no matter how powerful Satan may appear to be; there is One who is greater…One who can override these difficult times and lead us into something better…something even better than what we once had before the trial began.
The encouragement that I would like to leave with you today; is to not allow the works of Satan to take you down…through thoughts whose only aim is to lead you down paths of defeat and total destruction. Instead…why not do as I have chosen to do and take a trip back to an old rugged cross…a place where Jesus' death defeated evil…a place where you can be reminded of all that Jesus did…to not only save you from sin; but to also help you override the difficult times that you may be facing right now.
You know…Satan has a way of displaying himself in a powerful way…one that can make us believe that we won't survive these difficult times in our lives; but I'm here to tell you that there is One whose love for you is so real. In fact…it was that love that gave up Himself for you; because He saw down the road…and He knew what you would face…before you would even reach these moments in time.
No matter what you may be facing today…just know that God is right behind Satan, with a power that can love and care for you. May I encourage you take hold of this most powerful God today…because one thing I know for sure; is that when you do…He will fight these battles on your behalf, until the works of evil are destroyed completely.
Have a very blessed day…and always know that there is someone greater than the one who has afflicted you!
It's Always & Only Because of Him…
