This week, God seems to be opening our eyes and thoughts to His power vs. the power of evil; that we may recognize the deceptive ways of Satan and connect more deeply with God, rather than our problems; so today, I would like to continue on and share some thoughts and words of encouragement with you, as to how we can weaken that so-called power of Satan.
As we begin, let’s turn to a Bible verse in James 4:7…and we read…“Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” Could it be that we are doing the complete opposite of this verse, by submitting ourselves to the problem, rather than God? Don’t we realize that by doing this; that we are also pushing God out of the problem, while allowing the ways of Satan to become more enhanced within our lives.
One thing God recently reminded me of; is that when we walk away from evil and shun its ways; then we are also weakening its power…because when we don’t respond in the way that Satan expects us to respond to the problem; then it makes his plan null and void, which becomes a complete failure for him, rather than for us. On the other hand…when we give up and give into the problem; then this choice actually gives Satan more power. Think of it this way…when a fire is first started, there is only a small flame, as the kindling begins to burn; but as you add more wood to that small fire; then the fire increases with strength and it burns hotter. In a similar way…when we choose to give into the problems we face; then it’s as if we are placing fuel on a fire that is already burning, which only enhances the ways of Satan, rather than deadening them.
The encouragement that I would like to leave with you today; is to not give into the problem that Satan has placed before you; but instead…give that time and attention to God; because when you choose to connect with God rather than the problem; that is when the fiery trial will begin to burn out, while a flame of hope will continue to be the light you need, as you walk through these darkened times of life.
Have a very blessed day!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
