You Are Not Alone

Greetings My Friends;
When you are a sinner, satan talks to you all of the time. You don't realize it, because you are a sinner, and his suggestions seem very agreeable. You may even consider the worst things, as normal or good, because in a lot of cases, he has taken away your discernment of right and wrong. Your heart becomes corrupted.
When you find the Lord, satan will attack you for sure. He is relentless. He knows from experience that if he is persistent, a lot of people will cave in and go his way.
As we have said before, one of his best tools is doubt. He tries to convince you that you are not saved. Why would God forgive you? He tries condemnation by trying to convince you that God no longer loves you, because you just don't measure up.
There are probably millions of other people in the same boat. You aren't the only one. The best thing you can do is go to the concordance in the back of your Bible, and find a couple of verses you can use to defeat him. Say these verses often. He is attacking you because you are on the right path, and that scares him.
In our church, we pray for healing for anyone who needs it. This is every Sunday after the service. In talking to some of the people, you hear a lot of the same thing. They will say things like "I was healed, but three days later the pain came back". Further conversation reveals that they were waiting for or expecting the pain to come back. That was the door for satan to come back, so he did.
When you pray about anything, you must believe, and continue to believe. God does not bless you one moment and take it away the next. When he heals you or answers the prayer, it is for good. Only you can give it away to satan.
It would be a good idea to keep this fact in mind. Your faith is not what makes things happen. What causes healing for instance is your belief and trust in the Lord to do it. When you speak to the mountain in Jesus name, your faith and belief is that Jesus will then bring your command to fulfillment.
Here are a couple of verses to quote to satan. Remember that attacks on you will happen. You can be the victor through Jesus. Remember that Jesus always forgives, no matter what you have done.
1 John 4:4 "greater is he who 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".
Galatians 1:4 "I am delivered from the evils of this present world, for it is the will of God".
Remember Jesus loves you
Prayer of Salvation;
Father, I repent of all my sins. I believe Jesus suffered, died, and rose again to forgive all of my sins and to make salvation possible. I ask Jesus to come into my heart to be my personal savior. Thank you Lord.
God bless you and keep you
God make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you
God lift up his face unto you and give you peace
