He is Sneaky.

SPIRITUAL STRENGTH

Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.” Matthew 26:41 New King James Version

Satan is sneaky.

He does not destroy you all at once. He begins with little thoughts. They slowly grow like cancer. When they become cemented in your mind they lead to actions. These actions lead to destruction in the form of addictions, cheating and others.

So for example there is a beautiful woman at work. You catch a quick glance at her. You start thinking about her and become obsessed with her until you invite her out from a drink. The drink leads to a hotel room. The hotel room leads to an affair and then your marriage is destroyed.

The best defense is to memorize Bible Verses and have them written out and carry them with you. When the temptation comes, whip out the Bible verses and tell Satan to go take a hike while calling on Jesus to protect your mind.

Yes it is just as important to call upon Jesus.

Satan is smarter and stronger than you but is a wimp before Christ.   Joseph- Anthony: Green

Pray for Jesus to destroy your bad habits because they are too strong to defeat on your own.  I know. There was one in particular that had me enslaved.  I tired therapy, diet, hypnosis and my own strength. They all failed. When I completely surrendered it to Christ the chains that held me were instantly smashed and I have never returned to that habit since.

 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Yeshua (God our rescuer) for delivering me from the destructive jaws of Satan and his minions. I thank you for this protection day by day, moment by moment. I with great gratitude give thanks for this magnificent blessing in the name of He who defeated Satan on the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

After faithfully serving the Lord in China for ten years as a teacher I have been called home to care for my aged mother who has numerous disabilities. As well I regularly do volunteer work visiting seniors in a seniors home. I love being in nature. I say the closer we get to nature the more we see Jehovah. We are blessed in this area with many amazing, easy to ride bicycle trails on old railroad lines that takes us all over Southern Ontario.

  1. Absolutely true. The evil one is very cunning and plans for our destruction just as God plans for our success! We need to keep this in mind all the time, every day, and be on guard against Satan and his “minions!”

    • We need to remember if it is true, if it is love and if Jehovah would approve. If we do not know if He would approve we need to ask Him and wait for His answer

      • I think if we can decide that something is done from love, we have our answer. For God is love, therefore if something is loving it is true and of God…

        Thanks my friend,
        Steve

      • That is the best way to discern if it is from God
