Hello everyone…and a very happy and blessed Tuesday to you all! I truly hope and pray that your day is going well…and even more, I pray that we will come to truly experience a God who is greater than ourselves…or any other thing we may face in this life, including the works of Satan…Amen!!
This past Sunday, as Keith and I were spending some time with God, I was reminded, as to how we can suffer needlessly; just by the way we react to Satan, during a time of need. For example, I remember a time when I was facing some very difficult moments and the person I was talking with at the time said… “Oh, just say… Satan get behind me.” I’m not saying that there is anything wrong with that; because we shouldn’t allow Satan to have control over our lives; but at the same time…words like these can become only words we memorize and speak at the right time…and when we react to Satan in this way, I would think that he is probably laughing in our faces. Yes…we have a powerful being living within us; but we must remember that when we just speak these words in a habitual way; then the power isn’t contained within those words.
As I have said in the past…words alone won’t do it. Instead, we need to react in a way that will give Satan a clear message that we aren’t going to give him the time of day…and the best way I have come to see and experience this; is when I ignore him. For instance…lately, I have been going through numerous attacks from Satan on my health…and I pretty much know why…and that is because of the writings that God has been giving me to share with you lately. You see…when we do something good that can make a difference within our own lives…and even in the lives of others; then that is when Satan fights back. The thing we must remember though; is to not fight back on our own…for the battle will only become fiercer.
Anyways, as I have been experiencing, what has seemed to be one thing after another; I have gotten to the place where I just say to myself…here we go again…and then I ignore the attack…and why…because when we ignore Satan; that becomes a way of letting go and releasing the problem directly into the hands of almighty God, where He can fight for us, which in the end makes Satan powerless within our lives.
As I was looking through several Bible verses this morning, God led me to a couple verses in Romans 16:19-20 and we read… “But everyone knows that you are obedient to the Lord. This makes me very happy. I want you to be wise in doing right and to stay innocent of any wrong. 20) The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. May the grace of our Lord Jesus be with you.”
We all know how Satan can use the good in our lives to bring us down and even out of commission with God. Let’s face it…as long as we choose to remain faithful to God…we will always fight the opposition, which is Satan; but the one thing we must remember; is to always remain true to God…no matter what; because when we are able to press on…no matter what may come our way; then like I said previously…we will be letting go of what Satan has attempted to bring us down with…and in the end, our God will take care of Satan for us…where his ways will be crushed under our feet.
You know…there were times in my life, when I suffered needlessly and that was only because I was backwards, in the way that I reacted to my problems. In other words…instead of ignoring the works of evil, I began to add more fuel to a fire that was already burning, by giving Satan the time of day, while trying to fight these battles on my own.
No matter what we face…and no matter how difficult it may seem; we must get an attitude with Satan and never give way to his childish schemes. Even though they may attempt to convince us that their power can bring us down…there is no power greater than the power of almighty God…Amen!!
One thing I can say for sure as we close; is that life isn’t easy and it may never be, as a follower of Jesus Christ; but there is a way to rise above the deceptive ways that attempt to take us down…and it’s not through ourselves…religion or no other means; only through the power of a God who can crush evil and bring it to its knees; so ignore Satan…connect deeper with God and let every need go into His powerful hands, where these battles can truly be won for good…Amen!!
Have a very blessed day and I will see ya soon! God bless!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
