Know Your Real Enemy

Y'all. Satan is no dummy.  

Deception is his biggest weapon and he is quite brilliant at using it.  

He cannot read your mind, He is not omnipresent, omniscient or omnipotent.  Those attributes belong to God and God alone!

BUT he has kept exquisite records of your life.  Yes, little ole you!  Satan and his pals know exactly how to use their storehouse of information to bring about predictable responses in you. 

He will turn his vast knowledge (accumulated over your whole lifetime) of your unmet needs, unresolved issues, unhealed hurts, bad memories, pain, anger, bitterness, unforgiveness and, hidden sin into arsenals to use against you.

YET, one of the most disturbing forms of deception is self-deception!  Self-deception is a form of corrupted consciousness or willed ignorance. 

Wow, I know that is heavy, but as my grandmother often said we must “call a spade a spade”.

The first step to overcoming any life-debilitating act is to identify it.

Are you aware of those areas that need to change, or have you fallen prey to the familiar declaration, “that is just how I am!?

That may be how you are, but that does not mean you need to stay that way.

There is too much life to be lived, victories to be won and love to be shared.
