The devil has been attacking me most of my life, through one thing or another. As I have started reading God’s Word more, gathering closer and deepen my personal relationship with Him, the devil has upped his attacks; when the old attacks didn’t work he moved on until he found one that does work….
The devil is attacking me in a place that he hasn’t in a very long time. So this morning instead of doing what I normally would have I pulled out my Bible and found several verses that I am using to rebuke the devil and his evil ways:
*“But blessed are those who trust in the Lord and have made the Lord their hope and confidence. (Jeremiah 17:7 NLT)
*When you follow the desires of your sinful nature, the results are very clear: sexual immorality, impurity, lustful pleasures, idolatry, sorcery, hostility, quarreling, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish ambition, dissension, division, envy, drunkenness, wild parties, and other sins like these. Let me tell you again, as I have before, that anyone living that sort of life will not inherit the Kingdom of God.
*My heart has heard you say, “Come and talk with me.”And my heart responds, “Lord, I am coming.” (Psalm 27:8 NLT)

Why is it so easy to believe in his lies when we KNOW they are lies? Will you believe the lies today or will you stand in the Truth of God’s promises? I am praying for you my friend
