Every time you are going through the wilderness season the devil will try to tempt you so that you can walk away from God’s plan for your life and out of His will.
The enemy will try to provoke you and use God’s word against you so that he can get you to quit. Remember the devil is like a lion looking for who to devour. The scripture says he looks like..( he is not a lion). Which means he will roar..in other words try to threaten you, scare you by causing affliction upon your life, causing you to speak negative at your destiny, he will cause situations that will discourage you and make you think that he is stronger so you can be scared and give up.
I got good news for you we have only one lion and that is Jesus Christ the lion of Judah. He is the great and the almighty one, the all knowing and all powerful one, our strong tower. He conquered Satan and granted you authority over him. Never let the enemy intimidate you or mock your purpose and your destiny and remember he was defeated at Calvary.
Behold, I give unto you authority to tread on serpents and scorpion’s, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.- Luke 10:19
As you are going through the wilderness where everything is not making sense and your feeling lost and confused about the future, don’t allow the enemy to torment your mind but trust God and His word and stay focused on Him and He will guide you and give you the power you need to overcome your adversary the devil.
In the wilderness silence and block out the devil’s lies and noise with the word of God. The devil is afraid of God’s word because it has the power to destroy him. Stay alert and vigilant in the wilderness and renew your mind with the word of God because it will give you strength and courage to destroy the enemy ( the devil) when he tries to tempt you.
And be not conformed to this world, but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.-Romans 12:2
The devil will continue to use different situations like your friends turning against, financial luck, sickness and disease, in other words he will mess with your mind with challenging things that your facing or going through to try to get your reaction. Remember the devil is relentless and he doesn’t give up because his goal is to destroy and kill your destiny that’s why you have to be on guard always and stay prayed up so you can discern his ways and destroy him in Jesus name. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Always remember when you give into temptation the enemy will use it to destroy your life. Use God’s word against him always for it is a powerful weapon aganist him.
Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. James 4:7
