“Be ever engaged, so that whenever the devil calls, he will find you occupied.”
~ St. Jerome ~
“Satan trembles when he sees the weakest saint upon his/her knees.” ~ William Cowper ~
“If you don’t set the tone for the day, the devil will set it for you.” ~ Joel Osteen ~
“You can hide from the devil but he’ll always find you.” ~ Allen Iverson ~
“One of Satan’s most deceptive and powerful ways of defeating us is to get us to believe a lie. And the biggest lie is that there are no consequences to our own doing. Satan will give you whatever you ask for if it will lead you where he ultimately wants you.” ~ Charles Stanley ~
“When you make a mistake and the devil comes and tells you, ‘You’re no good,’ you don’t have to take on the guilt and condemnation he wants to put on you. No! You can immediately confess your mistake to God, thank Him for forgiving you and cleansing you with the blood of Jesus, and move forward in the victory of His grace and forgiveness.” ~ Joyce Meyer ~
“Those who play with the devil’s toys will be brought by degrees to weld his sword.”
~ R. Buckminster Fuller ~
“Satan tries to counterfeit the work of God and by doing this he may deceive many. To make us lose hope, to make us feel miserable like himself, and believe that we are beyond forgiveness. Satan might even misuse words from the Scriptures that emphasize the justice of God in order to imply there is no mercy.” ~ Dieter F. Uchtdorf ~
Since that day in the Garden, Satan has lied to all of us: You’re not pretty enough. You’re not thin enough. You’re not good enough. You’re not smart enough.
You’re not ______________________ (fill in the blank with Satan’s lying whissssssper) enough.
And the worst lie of all: God doesn’t love you. (Which is, basically, what he told Eve. “IF God loved you, He would allow you to eat of the fruit…”)
God loves each and every one whom He has made in His image. Our heavenly Father canNOT love us any more than He loves us nor can He love us any less! Your choice is to (a) believe his lies or (b) don’t believe his lies. Yep, it’s only one of two…believe or don’t believe.
God says, “You are enough…not because of anything you’ve done but because of my gifts of grace and mercy. Grace being you get what you don’t deserve and mercy being you don’t get what you do deserve.
