Through the battles my family has dealt with and my hands lifted to God asking ‘WHY’….Here’s what he has shown me.
* Don’t rest in success. Look what happened to Jesus after his baptism. When you receive incredible blessings from God, watch out! Satan targets us when we are off guard.
* Stay in Gods will. I remember saying “if it’s this hard it can’t be Gods will” and I would quit. I found out that just because I was doing the right thing doesn’t mean I was immune of evil. Jesus was in God’s will when the enemy attacked Him. – When things are bleak, don’t lean to your own understanding. That’s the time to ‘trust in the Lord with all your heart’. Prov. 3:5.
* Know the Scriptures. Every time Jesus was attacked, He countered with ‘it is written’. God’s word is called “the sword of the spirit” Eph 6:17. It is our primary weapon against evil. Jesus used it to defeat satan, and so must we.
