How old do I have to get?
How many experiences do I have to have?
How many times will I see miracles happen?
How many promises are kept?
How many dreams are realized?
Before I quit listening to Satan’s whispers in my ear!
Genesis 3:1 Now the serpent was more crafty than any other beast of the field that the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God actually say, ‘You shall not eat of any tree in the garden’?”
Now, I’m gonna admit something here. Self doubt runs a muck in my mind. It’s a learned trait. Never seemed to quiet measure up to those I sought love and admiration from. Not sure why and not blaming. It just is.
But now………. I know better. The ONE I seek love from created me, knows me and still loves me with un-measurable love.
Yet, when that crafty prowler gets in my ear, I still begin to listen.
1 Peter 5:8 Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.
It happened to me just the other day. Some things were going on in my world and Satan was working overtime. But you know what, I recognized his skeeming and called him out on it. Satan ain’t gonna win this one! Cause my God has me!
I understand that as long as I live and as long as I’m seeking my God daily, living out my salvation given by Jesus and allowing the Holy Spirit to lead me………….. Satan’s gonna keep trying!
Not today Satan!
10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. 14 Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. 16 In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; 17 and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, 18 praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end, keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints,
Thank you again Lord!
