If there is one thing I’ve let go unnoticed in my life for far too long, it’s the lies that Satan has been feeding me ever since I was a young girl.
For me it was:
You aren’t good enough.
You have to work to be loved.
Your past defines you.
What is it for you?
Lies of perfection? Lies about your worth? Lies about your hope?
Satan is the master deceiver. He does all he can to lay low and to weave his schemes into our lives.
Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. -1 Peter 5:8
And the crazy thing is, more often than not, we let him!
We become sad, angry, hopeless and we blame ourselves, our jobs and our families.
I’ve done this over and over despite the victory that I already have in Christ.
If there is one thing we, as Christians, desperately need, it’s a revolution.
We need to take a stand against the one who tries to steal and destroy the hope and victory we already have won.
I want to begin this series by saying that the battle against Satan is something that each and every one of us will be fighting until the day we meet our Savior in heaven.
You’ve been fighting it since the day you were born and I want you to know the victory and strength Christ has for you.
You are not fighting this battle alone.
You are not fighting this battle empty-handed.
So every Thursday for the next several weeks, you will be sure to find encouragement, tools and stories that will equip you and empower you to stand against Satan and to live in the victory and hope Christ has already given.
I will be welcoming several friends to share their personal stories and testimonies as a part of this series. Their stories of hope will encourage you, strengthen you and equip you to find the strength to stand against the enemy.
If you have a story or a piece of encouragement you would like to share, please email me at email@example.com.
Your testimony and your words can bring light into the darkness.
So let’s stand together against the lies that Satan has woven into our lives and discover true peace and true victory against the one who has no power in the presence of the Lord.
