Food For Thought!
When it isn't our finances, it's our health. ~ When it's not our health, it's our relationships.
Fighting evil and bad is a lifelong battle. Yet, our Lord told us to be of good cheer. Yes, there will be tribulations but we will always overcome!
To defeat evil, however, we must understand what or better, who it is. Evil is not your mother-in-law, your husband, your wife, your ex, your gossiping coworker or even bad luck. Evil is a person.
Satan is the catalyst behind all evil.
He is the one with the influence and vast army of wicked minions(demons). His ability to play possum and stay hidden behind the scene is his most effective strategy of vexing, resisting and defeating each one of us on the battlefield of life.
Satan will never be your friend. His only goal is for you to suffer in his kingdom with him for eternity. In our ignorance, we beat the air by fighting people and not understanding circumstances.
Solomon said that the principle thing in life was wisdom. Wisdom is light, clarity, and truth that comes from the mind of God.
He knows all. He understands all.
Without wisdom, we are blind, deaf and dumb.
We get depressed.
We give up!
It's just too hard! And, it is!
Satan is too crafty for us. We need the Holy Spirit to open our eyes to see it's Satan saying those mean and abusive things.
He is the one resisting prosperity.
He is the deceiver behind the two-faced people.
He is behind the health issues and on and on it goes.
We overcome him by submitting to God's word.
We overcome him through fervent prayer and faith.
We overcome him by walking in love and never giving in to hate and revenge.
Through Jesus, yes, we are more than conquerors!!!
"Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men." (James 4:7)
