I’m a bit angry, so bear with me.
So many Christians, believers, followers of Christ are being sabotaged, sucker punched, bamboozled and hoodwinked by Satan. And it pisses me off.
People are being taken out by Satan through his antics, some by his own doing, but many times, by our own inability to see the slick ways he gets us to sabotage ourselves.
I don’t have much to say today but this: the best way to kill a snake is… to cut his head off.
For the Word that God speaks is alive and full of power [making it active, operative, energizing, and effective]; it is sharper than any two-edged sword… Hebrews 4:12 (Amplified)
Cut his head off. Metaphorically and literally.
Speak the word over situations, man. Stop sitting there with your big ol’ mouth sealed shut when things are happening to you or people around you. Get some Word (the sword) and get to severin’ heads.
Look! Luke 10:19 Behold! I have given you authority and power to trample upon serpents and scorpions, and [physical and mental strength and ability] over all the power that the enemy [possesses]; and nothing shall in any way harm you.
Stop letting satan steal from you. Your joy (John 15:11). Your purpose (Jeremiah 1:5). Your sanity/peace (Psalm 4:8).
Also, stop giving satan credit for things he didn’t do. The old adage “the devil made me do it” doesn’t apply when you don’t choose (because it IS a choice) righteousness when the opportunity was given. And trust me, an opportunity is always given.
1 Corinthians 10:13 (read all of it!)
For no temptation (no trial regarded as enticing to sin), [no matter how it comes or where it leads] has overtaken you and laid hold on you that is not common to man [that is, no temptation or trial has come to you that is beyond human resistance and that is not adjusted and adapted and belonging to human experience, and such as man can bear]. But God is faithful [to His Word and to His compassionate nature], and He [can be trusted] not to let you be tempted and tried and assayed beyond your ability and strength of resistance and power to endure, but with the temptation He will [always] also provide the way out (the means of escape to a landing-place), that you may be capable and strong and powerful to bear up under it patiently.
While many say you don’t go into a gun fight with a knife, I’d put my money on the gangsta reeling the (s)word.
