I’ve been there.
I have often felt the attacks of the Evil one. So I can relate to the Israelites when I read in Jeremiah that the siege ramps were being built against the walls of Jerusalem. The attack is coming! I can feel it.
I’ve been there.
When I read that the city will be conquered through war, famine and disease, it all sounds familiar. Attacked on all sides – I’ve been there.
How does Satan attack me? It’s not unusual for my computer to start not working well when I sit down to enter these blogs. If my computer is behaving, then the internet or WordPress will start being uncooperative. Satan doesn’t like these blogs and he doesn’t try to hide it.
Satan also tries to distract me from the Truth with his whispers in my head at night trying to make me question the fact that God is good. I normally start reciting scripture and the whispers stop. My questions also stop because I am reminded of the truth.
Satan often tries to get me to focus on the negative things in my life. He’ll pile on the junk trying to get me to think about all of that instead of God. He attempts to make bitterness, frustration and unforgiveness look like the natural response to situations in my life. Regular reading and study of God’s word keeps me grounded in the Truth.
None of these attacks are working, Satan.
Meanwhile, I know God’s Army of Angels surround me and they are fighting my battles in the spiritual realm. We already know the end of this story – God and his armies are the winners.
Satan with his siege ramps has no power unless I give it to him.
And he isn’t getting a toehold here.
Thank you for your Truth and your Army of Angels, Abba Father.
