2 Peter 2:19
1 John 3:20
If our hearts judge us, we know that God is greater than our hearts. And He knows everything.
We’re not waging war against enemies of flesh and blood alone. No, this fight is against tyrants, against authorities, against supernatural powers and demon princes that slither in the darkness of this world, and against wicked spiritual armies that lurk about in heavenly places.
Satan is not a leftover superstition of the uneducated, he is real, living, deceiving & destructive.
1 Peter 4:1-2
Since Jesus went through everything you’re going through and more, learn to think like Him. Think of your sufferings as a weaning from that old sinful habit of always expecting to get your own way. Then you’ll be able to live out your days free to pursue what God wants instead of being tyrannised by what you want.
Giving into your desires is living a life of delusion.
Let no one say when he is tempted, I am tempted from God; for God is incapable of being tempted by [what is] evil and He Himself tempts no one. But every person is tempted when he is drawn away, enticed and baited by his own evil desire (lust, passions).
