the devil

Greetings My Friends;
If you are human and alive, you have had many encounters with the devil. From the time you are very small, he has tried to influence you in every part of your life. You did or did not do many things that he planted in your head. I will explain that statement.
satan hates God, and satan hates you. If you think about doing something good, he will do his best to get you to forget it. He will provide you with any number of excuses to make you change your mind about the good deed.
satan will also plant bad things in your mind. He will tempt you to steal, cheat, and lie. He tries to influence how you feel about everything. People, your job, where you live, and what you do. He knows that God hates complaining, so he tries to put you in a situation where you will complain. It doesn't stop there.He even tries to get people to commit murder and all other kinds of violence. He has even convinced some people to kill themselves.
satan knows that God is a jealous God. The first commandment tells you that . satan will entice you with all sorts of worldly things to get your mind off of God. He will introduce you to porn, drugs, alcohol, adultery, gambling, and any other sin you can think of. He again will provide excuses for you to make it seem okay. He will tell you what you are doing is all right because you can handle it. He wants the pleasures of the flesh to be on your mind all of the time. Remember what occupies your mind the most becomes your God. satan does not do this stuff with people because he likes them, he just wants their company in eternity.
Another tool Satan has is doubt and fear. If he can get you to do either one, he wins. Doubt and fear are unbelief and lack of trust. When Jesus was on earth, unbelief grieved Him the most. He did not perform many miracles in his hometown because of the unbelief of the people.
Fear and doubt or unbelief is so serious that it will keep prayers from being answered. They literally opened the door for satan in your life. Did you ever stop to think that fear, doubt, unbelief is faith in satan? They accomplish his work in your life.
One more point. Why is it so hard to believe that God talks to you, when it is so easy to hear satan. Some comforting thoughts;
1 John 4:4 I am of God and overcome satan, for greater is He that is in me than he who is in the world.
James 4:7 I am submitted to God and the devil flees from me because I resist him in the name of Jesus.
God Bless You And Remember
 Jesus Loves You
Prayer of Salvation;
"Oh God in Heaven, I believe with all of my heart that Jesus has been raised from the dead. I receive Your Word, and I repent of sin. I renounce the past. Come into my heart, Lord Jesus. I receive my forgiveness. I receive the new birth, cleansed and washed in the Word and in the precious blood of Jesus. Fill me with Your Spirit, in Jesus name. Amen"
