Trials have a way of getting you down don’t they? You feel attacked, hopeless, angry, depressed, and bitter all at the same time. I wrote a post two days ago that contained my pleading and cries to God over one such trial. That prayer was read and commented on by many of my friends and followers of this blog and their prayers and concern was greatly appreciated.
But I realized that I cannot lose the will to fight. With God’s help and the support of my friends around me, it’s time to strap on the gloves and fight against the lies and poison that Satan has put into my life. Satan has told me that I’m not good enough and I’ve believed that lie for far too long. He’s planted seeds of bitterness and anger in my heart and with my help has allowed them to grow into a tangle of weeds that has choked away any semblance of kindness and forgiveness that used to reside there.
I’ve allowed the past failures and mistakes committed against me to be used as an excuse to control and manipulate things to my advantage. And it was all justified because I was the one who was hurt in the first place. But while I looked out for only myself, I hurt others in the process, even those who were innocent of any trespass. For far too long I have allowed Satan to use me as a tool to wreak havoc around me while he sits back and watches with a smile.
I think it’s about time I wipe that smile off Satan’s face. It’s time to fight. You see Satan, I have God on my side. I have his word to teach me and guide me in the knowledge of your deceptive ways. I have friends and family who love me and are joining me in this fight. I have other Christian brothers and sisters and followers of this blog who are lifting up powerful prayers against you and who are willing to fight on my behalf to see me restored and you defeated.
Satan…I’m not asking, I’m telling. BY THE POWER OF GOD, LEAVE ME AND MY FAMILY ALONE!!!
