that Satan tries to influence each of us daily
because of one thing he loves to do...
keep us distracted from growing with God.
but when I pray,
when I read the Bible,
when I discuss these concepts with other believers,
I find one thing very compelling;
that while Christ is actively pursuing us
through other believers and the Holy Spirit,
Satan is also pursuing us.
but because he loves himself so very much
that he wants to keep us from loving God the Father.
is by telling us lies which we often choose to believe,
“I am too dirty to approach God. He would never accept me as I am now.”
- As if God could never like us, much less love us.
“God doesn’t listen to me, or atleast doesn’t want to.”
- Like I am an unimportant distraction to God.
“I am doing so well, I dont really need God in my life right now.”
- The lie that we can do “life” on our own.
for us to come to love Him, know Him, and trust Him.
When we are overwhelmed with details, we cannot focus on Him.
When we are facing painful circumstances, the pain seems to big.
All of these are a ‘mental-fog’ that life here on earth brings us.
These are the instances that try our faith.
or will we allow ourselves to be too overwhelmed?
Because I have struggled with each of them.
I have doubted God’s love for me.
But I have also done so “well” that I doubted my need of Him.
And these are examples of the types of thinking
that led me to prison for my accident.
You can read more about that HERE.
God loves me,
and He loves you.
He wont ever deny you.
He will always accept you.
You and I are His children.
And nothing can ever keep us from this truth!
