It Is Written, Psalm 101:7, he who works deceit shall not dwell within My house; he who tells lies shall not continue in My presence.
As we go through our day, we are constantly bombarded by satan, and most of the time we don't even realize it. He is that good at what he does.
You are going to work, and you are listening to the radio. The news comes on, and you hear a few things that make you angry. So now you start to dwell on what you heard, and your subconscious starts to add some fuel to the fire.
As you start fussing over the news, you notice the traffic you are in. It seems extra heavy today. satan just painted a picture that makes everything look worse than it is. Now maybe you cuss at a few drivers and get more upset.
You get to work and you see yet another picture. You see a coworker you don't like, and now all of a sudden you can't stand the sight of that person. The day is now two hours old, and you have already sinned many times according to God's standards.
satan works on our minds with his pictures. He sets us up to sin, so it is almost like a reflex action. We must realize that that is what is happening. Most things are nowhere near as bad as they look. Take control and reject anything that gets you thinking the wrong way.
Beware these are satan's tricks, and talk to the Holy Spirit, and tell satan you are getting off that roller coaster in Jesus name and tell him to leave. We can't help the picture satan paints, but we can decide if we want to buy them or not. The same is true for thoughts that come into our head. They are just another form of picture satan paints, and we don't have to accept them. If we don't accept the pictures, they are not ours, so we haven't sinned. Have a blessed day. Praise the Lord!
Remember Jesus Loves You
Prayer of Salvation
Lord Jesus, I thank you for what you did on the cross for me. Your blood washed away all my sins, by your stripes I was healed, your death and resurrection brought me salvation. Please forgive my sins, and come into my heart as my personal Savior.
