Satan has a way of convincing us that we are not one of God's children.
He will say that you are not worthy.
You are not good enough.
You will never amount to anything.
You will never be happy.
You can never do "that."
You don't deserve "it."
Who could ever love you?
You are not smart enough.
You are not pretty enough.
You are too fat.
You work hard, you deserve "it."
Go ahead. No one will ever know.
It's just a little white lie.
More money will make you happier.
Me, me, me...my, my, my...
It's all about you!
So not the case. We are here because we were chosen by the Creator. Each one of us has a purpose in His Kingdom. Your life is worth something and don't let anyone tell you differently. Not even yourself. The mind is a dangerous place when we sit in the "dark." Satan knows this and lives to taunt and deceive us.
Reading God's promises helps to rebuke the lies of the Devil. He is a liar.
Feeling abandoned by my birth father as a young girl, being distant from my mom as a teenager, and various other pitfalls in my life gave the devil an opportunity to get inside my head. He remained there for many years. I did not grow up in the Church and the word was not taught in my household.
Once I discovered who I was in Christ Jesus, the devil packed up his belongings and moved on. Not to say that he doesn't check on me from time to time to see if I'm still grounded in the word of God, but with my FAITH and my Lord and Savior walking beside me, I am surely not as vulnerable as I once was. If I've learned nothing thus far, I've learned that the word of GOD is true and that I stand on solid ground knowing that he loves me. I AM WORTHY and so are YOU! There is no favoritism with God.
When I am afraid, I will trust in you.
In God I trust; I will not be afraid.
What can mortal man do to me?
Love for a great day!
