Satan is very good at deceiving people, and he is also super good in laying down obstacles to hinder you from running along the right path. He especially likes to attack those people who have just started on doing something good, people who just encountered God, and people who just decided to go through a process of change.
But i’m also hear to tell you that Jesus Christ is with you and if you will just let him, he will help you overcome every hindrance no matter how big or small satan lays before you. Because Jesus is victorious, and he defeats all these deception, believe me He is more than able!
So please, if you ever are just starting off a journey with Christ, or if you ever just decided to avoid something bad, or if you started forgiving and loving people just don’t give up, and don’t ever think that the road which you decided to leave was better off. For The path to righteousness and love is narrow, but the reward at the end is great. Look unto Jesus no matter how hard it gets, keep your eyes fixed on Him and on what He is. For He is powerful, He is mighty, He is majestic, and He is everything you will ever need to finish the race.
Why am i talking about this?
Because i sort of just witnessed someone who decided to give up all her heartaches and forgive those who’ve wronged her, and of course satan hated that. Satan caused her to be hurt from the same people again, and reminded her of every wrong thing they’ve done to her, and now she’s kinda depressed. Satan hates it when people gets healed emotionally or physically, and when people start to Forgive each other. Wanna know why? because it was said in the bible that :
For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins. (Matthew 6:15)
Satan doesn’t want us to forgive, because the forgiveness of your sins and of others is a head start to a journey filled with the love of Christ. That is why the bible always says to forgive first because it is very important:
leave your gift there before the altar and go. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift. (Matthew 5:24)
Fellow brothers & sisters, it is so hard to keep going if you will do it in your own strength, ask Jesus to be your strength for we are weak without him. The moment you start to choose the path that leads to life & love choose to focus on what He said, and focus on what is waiting for you in the end. Do not look behind and don’t ever give in to the thought that what you left is better and easier, cause right now you are going for the best ,so stay focused.
In times of weakness God is your Strength, when satan hinders you Jesus will be with you to overcome it.
