Verse Of The Day : You are from God, little children, and have conquered them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world. 1 John 4 : 4
LISTEN : Do you know what the devil wants you to believe? He wants you to believe what God wants you to resist and reject. He wants you to believe the opposite of God’s good plans for your life. He wants you to doubt God’s promises and ability to provide for you. He wants you to believe that you are rejected and forsaken. (Psalms 27 : 10). He wants you to believe that all hope is lost, therefore life is worthless. (Psalms 27 : 14 ; Psalms 130 : 5). He wants you to believe that your condition has no solution and therefore should give up on life. He wants you to be depressed and die worrying. Beloved, these and many negative things are what God wants you to resist and reject. God wants you to say no to depression, defeat, fear, hopelessness, anger and all the negative thoughts the enemy wants you to embrace. God wants you to know that you are special to Him, and cannot be ruined by the enemy because, “Greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.” (1 John 4 : 4). Beloved, cheer up! Our God is bigger than your situation. Invite Him and let Him take over the battle. Surely, He will give rest to your troubled heart. Henceforth, refuse and resist what the devil wants you to believe. Be wise!
