“If you view Satan’s attacks against you as a battle for your inheritance, instead of a personal fight, you are standing in faith; and this will assure you the victory. If you should see Satan’s altercation with you as personal, it can cause you to feel isolated and become weary” (Pastor Asa Dockery, WHCN). This was the heart of the devotion from my pastor today. It hit a strong chord in me because I never really thought about all of my struggles in this way.
Don’t get me wrong, I know that the enemy of God hates His beloved family, but I have to admit that the battle has been going on in my life for eighteen years and I have grown weary at times. This strengthened me and changed my attitude about the battle.
Satan, you cannot have my inheritance. Jesus gave it to me. It belongs to me and my children and I don’t have to fight for it…just stand on the Truth because He already defeated you.
Me: “Daddy, the enemy is trying to steal what’s mine…he’s telling lies about me”.
God: “Really, we’ll see about that. Come here Gabriel…”
Love it! I need to remember this post whenever I’m feeling “picked on.” 🙂
