Resist the devil and he will flee

  • Comments 3

Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.  Oh boy, do I need God's strength to resist tonight.  Satan has been messing with my mind all day. It started last night with thinking that DH will want to live married but separate lives, and has progressed into thoughts that he's going to go through with the divorce a week from today.  I am really struggling with purging these thoughts from my mind.   Satan wants me to believe the worst. God wants me to believe the best. 

My hope for this marriage is not in DH.  My hope for this marriage is in God. God alone is able.  When I take my eyes off of God and put them on DH, I'm left with no option but to believe that my marriage will end in divorce. I only have hope as my eyes are fixed on God. I am praying tonight that God will lead me not into temptation, but deliver me from evil, protect me from Satan's assaults.
  • Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice. 5 Let your reasonableness[d] be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; 6 do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Phil. 4:4-7)

    I have the same problem, my wife seems to be doing just the same thing, and my mind makes it insurmountable, "But God" I love that. But God is in control and He will work his will in our lives regardless of the circumstances, if we lean into His grace.

    Remember, all who look to the Lord for life and help are in miracle territory.

  • Evil hits harder for  a time when it sees God's will coming closer to fruition.  Take it as a good sign you and very possibly your husband and marriage are coming closer to conforming to God's will.  Evil pays attention when we come closer to  reconciliation.  but I think it is for a time that  God  will allow the extra attacks.

    Be still and let all these thoughts  go to the foot  of the cross.  Evil surely doesn't  want to hang around the foot of our Savior.  

  • Thank you Lord for putting this in front of me today!

    I have been thinking about starting another round of The Love Dares again and I did today. My reason against it was that I have no contact with my wife. Because of this post I see that by thinking that way I was putting faith in my wife, not God. So I'm glad I started again. I will now put my faith in God and Him alone. He CAN save my marriage.

    I know the devil will flee when you resist him but he tries really hard before finally fleeing. He is still throwing things at me left and right.

    God IS in control. In His time things will always work for His good.
