That's been my week.
So many glorious wonderful moments that God has blessed me with. Money to pay my bills, sun out, children happy..and then the old devil stirs the pot.
It's so so true about referring him to be like a roaring lion, for that's what he is. He doesn't want you happy. He doesn't want you praising God for the miracles in your life. He wants you down and discouraged. He wants you quiet. I know that that's what he's up to. This blog today is my defiance to him. No matter how low you try to bring me, God has my back to push me right back up.
So when the lion comes roaring at you, stand tall and use Gods words in the Bible as a protection and reminder to KEEP going. Don't give up. For if you admit defeat..if you let that old devil drag you down..you'll miss out on the promises of God. The glories of Him in your life. Let go..let God. Let Him lead you out of the devils nasty snare. For God has it all under control. Remember that next time you feel the devil trying to bring you down. It will continue to get harder and harder until God comes..because the devil will want you to fail, but God promises that it will be worth everything when He comes to bring us home forever.
Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)
12 Our fight is not against people on earth. We are fighting against the rulers and authorities and the powers of this world’s darkness. We are fighting against the spiritual powers of evil in the heavenly places. 13 That is why you need to get God’s full armor. Then on the day of evil, you will be able to stand strong. And when you have finished the whole fight, you will still be standing.
14 So stand strong with the belt of truth tied around your waist, and on your chest wear the protection of right living. 15 On your feet wear the Good News of peace to help you stand strong. 16 And also use the shield of faith with which you can stop all the burning arrows that come from the Evil One. 17 Accept God’s salvation as your helmet. And take the sword of the Spirit—that sword is the teaching of God. 18 Pray in the Spirit at all times. Pray with all kinds of prayers, and ask for everything you need. To do this you must always be ready. Never give up. Always pray for all of God’s people.
