I wonder what would happen if I could literally hear my Creator and God conversing with the Devil about me. Imagine, based on knowing God and His love for me through His Word, it would go something like this:
Yahweh (God): “Have you considered my servant, Stacey?”
Satan (the accuser): (laughs) “HER? Oh come on, you gotta be kidding me! Not her?!? Anyone, but her! I mean, she is not talented, pretty, smart, or even worth much.”
Yahweh (God): “Oh, but she is. See, you do not know her like I do. I have gotten to great lengths to pursue her. She is my beautiful daughter. Though she may fail, My grace is all she needs. She doesn’t need you, or this world’s version of perfection. She has all she needs: Me!”
This, friends, is just a glimpse. If only, we understood the spiritual attacks beneath our circumstances.
What would happen if we challenged the voices inside our heads that question our unworthiness to be God’s children and walk in obedience to Him. What if we questioned the lies and cross-examined our thought train?
In Job 1, we learn Satan attacks those who are following after God. The harder we follow after God, the harder the attacks may come at us through circumstances, people, or temptation. God pursues us, and we can follow His leading. He is always in control. He is always good.
- How is your thought train?
- Do you habitually practice replacing the lies with God’s truth?
- How is your time in the Word?
- What part of your thought train needs evaluation?
