The only part of us the devil can use to attack us is our mind. The devil knows how powerful our minds are. That thing knows if it sows bad seeds in our minds and we believe it we will start doubting Jesus. That we will not truly believe we have been saved or that God loves us and is here with us. Satan knows as we think we become. So if he can implement fear and worries upon us we would not be able to focus on God. The devil wants to take our peace and wants to do the complete opposite of what my Father and Brother Jesus stand for. Satan wants to ruin their reputation and tarnish their names. “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” (II Timothy 1:7 NKJV)
This is why we need to put on the whole body armor of God. 13 “Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; 18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints..” (Ephesians 6:13-18 NKJV)
Therefore, be careful how you think; your life is shaped by your thoughts. (Proverbs 4:23 GNT) The devil has been trying to get in my mind these past couple of weeks but I know who my Father is. Jesus saved me when everyone doubted me and turned their backs on me. I don’t praise them because of what I think I could get from them. I praise them because of what they have already done in my life. There are plenty of times I didn’t get my way but I still praised them. I’m not in it for the riches. I’m here because they showed me what true love is. I never had anybody in my life genuinely love me for me. They could have given up on me a long time ago but to them I was worth fighting for.
