Why is there so much evil in the world?
Why are addictions the plague of our century?
Why are innocent children being abused and killed?
Why do bad things happen to good people?
Satan takes the credit for all of this in the first chapter of Job.
He tells God that he just got back from “roaming the earth, going back and forth on it.” (vs 7 )
And Satan leaves a wide path of destruction wherever he goes.
That’s what we’re seeing – the work of Satan.
Satan smiles whenever we lie.
He smiles when we do anything that wrecks a relationship or a marriage.
He smiles when we are impatient. (Oww! These all relate to me but this one hits the bullseye).
He smiles when we are self-centered and focus on #1 (ourselves).
Satan smiles when he can do anything to distract us from our relationship with God. He’ll even bring good things into our lives if they will lure us away from God.
Satan is roaming……
going back and forth……
back and forth.
We need a full set of your spiritual armor each day, Abba Father.
