The truth shall set us free only if we apply it with wisdom. Most of the time we fight the wrong battle, we fight those we love in the name of Jesus. Don’t allow yourself to be a pawn in his chessboard. You are the missing piece in his puzzle. He’s got the plan in place you are the only one that can make it successful, he will use the truth to fight you. Be alert at all times.
Introspect and evaluate your actions and see if you didn’t support his plan. 1 Peter 5:8-9 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world. The main aim of him attacking a union is to destroy it. What you are experiencing, your partner is experiencing in a different way but all work together for him. When he challenges your marriage, he can make one to be stubborn and allows you to play your part, he knows you’ll use the truth to judge the situation, in your truth you comply with him by fighting the spiritually inflicted partner.
He knows how Christians thinks, he’s been one of us. Matthew 16:23 But He turned and said to Peter, “Get behind Me, Satan! You are an offense to Me, for you are not mindful of the things of God, but the things of men.” Peter only knew the normal human behavior and responded the normal way a caring friend would do but Jesus realized that Satan has inflicted him. He dealt with the spirit behind the confusion not the person.
Your brother might still be in sin but he is not a sinner. Remember that God waited for you also. Don’t use what you see to make judgement. Satan is like a thief, he studies his subject and knows the strength and weaknesses of his opponents. He doesn’t just attack a person without facts. He knows even to use the truth to fight us. Job 1:9-10 Satan replied to the LORD, “Yes, but Job has good reason to fear God. You have always put a wall of protection around him and his home and his property. You have made him prosper in everything he does. Look how rich he is! God has not left us to be vulnerable, the Holy Spirit is there to guide us. He speak through a His Word and gives us wisdom. Be sensitive and obedient to Him as He speaks. Mark 13:11 But when they arrest you and deliver you up, do not worry beforehand, or premeditate what you will speak. But whatever is given you in that hour, speak that; for it is not you who speak, but the Holy Spirit.
Most of the time we know when we acted in an unjust way to others, because in any situation, He is always speaking. Jesus said “It is written” What is the scripture advising you to today that you are refusing? Check yourself.
When we proclaim the Word of God and it’s promises, the enemy won’t rest until he proves it otherwise. It’s not that others don’t make mistakes, he wants to embarrass you. By being a Christian, you have declared war to his kingdom. 2 Samuel 12:13-14 So David said to Nathan, “I have sinned against the LORD.” And Nathan said to David, “The LORD also has put away your sin; you shall not die. However, because by this deed you have given great occasion to the enemies of the LORD to blaspheme, the child also who is born to you shall surely die.”
Girls that are all over, changing boyfriends, can do this for a long time without falling pregnant but as a Christian child, you cheat once and that can leads to pregnancy, you become the talk of Town. People will have all sorts of comment about church and Christian behavior.
When God wanted to kill the Israelites, Moses used the promises that God made as a bargaining tool. Numbers 14:13 But Moses objected. “What will the Egyptians think when they hear about it?” he asked the LORD. “They know full well the power you displayed in rescuing your people from Egypt.
2 Corinthians 11:14 But I am not surprised! Even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.
Job 1:7 “Where have you come from?” the LORD asked Satan. Satan answered the LORD, “I have been patrolling the earth, watching everything that’s going on.”
Luke 22:3 Then Satan entered into Judas Iscariot, who was one of the twelve disciples. Don’t win arguments and loose relationships. Make sure you understand and know your enemy. We are fighting a common enemy, some are just available to be used. Ephesians 6:12 For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.
John 10:10 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.
Take out the evil spirit in a person, you’ll see the good in them. Something makes people behave in an unacceptable manner. See God in every person. Leave at peace with everyone. Luke 22:3 Then Satan entered into Judas Iscariot, who was one of the twelve disciples.
Genesis 3:1 Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said to the woman, “Has God indeed said, ‘You shall not eat of every tree of the garden’?”
In soccer they say play the ball not the man. Matthew 16:23 But He turned and said to Peter, “Get behind Me, Satan! You are an offense to Me, for you are not mindful of the things of God, but the things of men.”
No one is completely bad, take out the spirit in a person and see them the way God see them.
John 13:2 And supper being ended, the devil having already put it into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, to betray Him.
