The devil tries to get us right where he wants us. Often times it’s when we’re struggling or trying to grow spiritually. Honestly, he’s out to destroy us every chance he can get. We cannot let him consume our thoughts. We cannot allow him to cause us to turn our backs against our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We have to be strong and stand up against him. Instead of getting upset with God because of our struggles, we must continue to give Him praise! God is and always will be an awesome God! We must submit to Him and the devil has no choice but to flee (James 4:7). Tell the devil NO!! As we suffer we can rejoice in the fact that Jesus overcame the same sufferings for He was also tempted and beat the devil at his own game. 1 Peter 4:12-13 states,” Dear friends, when the fiery ordeal arises among you to test you, don’t be surprised by it, as if something unusual were happening to you. Instead, as you share in the sufferings of the Messiah rejoice, so that you may also rejoice with great joy at the revelation of His glory,” (HCSB). Keep holding on and have Joy and Peace knowing that God will never leave you,for He knows just how much you can bear!
