How many times have you turned something over to God and then it crept up again? The devil uses everything in his bag of tricks to pull it up in front of you again and again. It can be the thought of deceit, the wonder of a lie, or the want of something you don't need.
Pray, pray, pray and continually turn it over to God. Release the stronghold of whatever it is and receive the power of God. Satan has no power over us - only if we let him.
My heart gets very heavy when I FEEL I'm being lied to or someone is being deceitful. When this happens I am letting my flesh rule instead of my spirit. God gave us the power over Satan and his lies. Satan is the one who gives us anxiety and our feelings of helplessness. God gave us His armor to to deflect the arrows that are thrown at us.
If God is truly our Savior and Father, then we can pray continually for release of whatever Satan has pulled up from our past to cause us this feeling of helplessness and anxiety.
Ephesians 6:11-13 (New International Version)
Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.
Put your armor on and STAND.
Blessings to you all,
