This blog is a Red Alert:
Realize this folks, that if you are a sold out believer in Jesus the enemy will do all he can to try and discourage you! He will use people and situations to try and dig at you and take you out of your relationship with Jesus and your God ordained mission in life.
He is a master at doing this because he has been at it for a long time, since the beginning of time.
Personally, I can testify that Satan was so slick in some situations in my life with words and situations from people and I wasn’t on my spiritual toes all the time. I got caught up in engaging in something that was a scheme from the pit of hell. Till the Holy Spirit showed me what was really going on and helped me to get back on track.
So realize it’s going to happen to you, also realize it’s not you it’s the enemy causing discomfort in your life.
The closer you get to the Lord and walk in His awesome presence, the more the heat is going to be turned up to try and discourage you.
Learn to be rock solid and let the attacks roll off your back like water off a ducks back and keep going on! You must learn to relax in faith and not let words from people or situations in life get you off track. If you can master those situations with patience and faith then God can use you in a greater way.
But if you can’t get by those attacks you will always stay on a lower level of spirituality.
Here is how the Apostle Paul declares our reaction should be to the schemes of the Devil.
I don’t want Satan to outwit us. After all, we are not ignorant about Satan’s scheming. 2 Corinthians 2:11 (GW)
The Apostle Paul was saying that they were always aware of the schemes of the Devil and they were not about to let him outsmart them.
His key is to outwit you and get you frustrated and ultimately make you quit!
Smith Wigglesworth a mighty warrior of God who lived in the early 1900s went to sleep one night after a long day of preaching and ministering the word of God. Approximately 30 minutes after he had fallen into a deep sleep he was awoken by the room atmosphere changing and the sensation of someone shaking his bed. He opened his eyes and saw an evil spirit that had manifested itself seated at the foot of his bed. After he cleared his eyes, it is reported that he looked at the evil spirit and said, “Oh, it’s only you!” He rolled over and went back to sleep.
That’s a man that understood a fact that the Devil has no power!!! Oh that we would be that bold.
Know this that the Devil hates you and the very air you breath. The reason he hates you so much is because you are made in the image of God and he hates God and His creation. I can’t stress enough that the Devil hates you with a passion and wants to see you and your witness totally destroyed.
He would love to see you dead.
So folks, there is no playing around with the Devil, don’t give him any reason to stick around in your life.
But command him to get away from you in Jesus name. See Jesus has already defeated him so the Devil is a sore loser. He is not going to be a sore loser in the future, he is currently a sore loser now.
You have much to do for the Lord Jesus Christ so fly high with the spiritual eagles and don’t ever again let him get you frustrated!
You win, you win, you win!!!
