Not everything bad that happens in our life is the devil. Sometimes God will allow certain situations to occur to teach us how to have faith and trust in him or to prove to us who he really is. But no matter the situation his desire is ALWAYS for us to conquer. The enemy knows this and he also knows how situations will effect us so he tries to feed us lies and play tricks on our minds, but that’s not the time to get discouraged. We have a job as believers to beat the devil at his own game and we do that by responding to his lies with the word of God. 

 

When he tells you you’ll never beat sickness, your response should be Isaiah 53:5 “...by his stripes, we are healed.” When people turn their back on you and he tries to convince you that you’re all alone, speak Deuteronomy 31:6 “...he will never leave you nor forsake you.”  When you’re experiencing a day where you don’t have enough, declare Philippians 4:19 “The Lord shall supply all of my needs...” 

Whatever you choose to let come out of your mouth is what will shape your reality! You can speak doubt and defeat or you can speak God’s word! It’s your choice — Choose wisely.
