Do you Sing-along or change the station?

“But the Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen you and protect you from the evil one.”
2 Thessalonians 3:3 NIV

I like to listen to the radio. I usually rotate between a few stations that play Christian music, so hearing the same song more than once a day is inevitable. Occasionally, I turn on the radio and “Good Good Father” is playing for the seventh time. Don’t get me wrong, I love me some Chris Tomlin, but sometimes I get tired of hearing it and will change the station hoping to hear a new song.

Satan is much like hearing that same song; he is a broken record, always filling our head with the same thoughts of doubt.

You’re not good enough

You don’t know what you’re doing

No one will love you

You will fail

If I already know the lyrics to the song I can either sing along or I can change the station.

When we don’t like what we are listening to, we change the radio station in our car. The same principle applies to our thoughts. I rather listen to the truth of God’s Word than Satan’s lies any day. God gives us exactly what we need to deflect the attack of the enemy through His word.

  • guard your heart (Proverbs 4:23)
  • take captive every thought and make it obedient to Christ (2 Corinthians 10:5)
  • do not conform to the patters of this world (Romans 12:2)
  • put on the armor of God (Ephesians 6:13)

When you surround yourself with the truth, you can spot the lies. These verses are the truth on which we stand and rely upon.

The Lord is faithful to strengthen and protect us by giving us His word to study and His truths to sing! My sweet friends, let’s surround ourselves with the truth of the word of God, so we can drown out the voice of the enemy!

Many Blessings,

Given Authority

“When the seventy-two disciples returned, they joyfully reported to Him, “Lord, even the demons obey us when we use Your name!” “Yes,” He told them, “I saw Satan fall from heaven like lightning! Look, I have given you authority over all the power of the enemy, and you can walk among snakes and scorpions and crush them. Nothing will injure you.”
Luke 10:17-18 (NLT) 

authority-1235389-639x426Jesus gives us authority over the enemy, but only through His Name – His Power. “He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.” (1 John 4:4) Satan would like nothing more than to distract or discourage us and to abolish our mission to share Christ with others. We must resist him and he will flee from us, but only in the power and name of Jesus Christ our Savior. Today, thank God for the authority He has given us over our enemy, and pray that we may gird ourselves daily with the Armor of God, so that we may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

Power Over the Enemy

“When the seventy-two disciples returned, they joyfully reported to Him, “Lord, even the demons obey us when we use Your name!” “Yes,” He told them, “I saw Satan fall from heaven like lightning!”
Luke 10:17-18 (NLT) 

giant-maze-or-mouse-trap-1187992-638x366Jesus knows our enemy, and He is stronger. He has complete control over Satan and his demons, and He is the one directing our lives. So what have we to fear? If God is for us, who can be against us? (Romans 8:31) Today, be encouraged that the Creator of the Universe is on our side. Pray that He will keep the enemy away as we seek to share the Gospel with those who are lost and desperately need hope. Also pray for wisdom, so that we may discern the Lord’s voice and not fall prey to the enemy’s traps.
