Diversions


It Is Written, Psalm 82:5, they do not know, nor do they understand;  they walk about in darkness;  all the foundations of the earth are unstable.
Have you ever really thought about why most people ignore God?  How about when you are trying to follow God and struggling with it?
The answer to both of these questions is satan.  You may not even realize he is doing it.  He doesn't always use a lie directly, because some people may catch on to what he is doing,  so he goes about his business in another way.
satan wants to keep your mind off God,  and ignorant of the fact he is manipulating you.  He does it through diversions.  He has packed the world with diversions.  He will glorify illicit sex, tell you drugs will ease your pain, drinking is cool, and so on.
He tries to numb your mind, by throwing all kinds of temptations your way.  His goal is to take away your conscience, so that evil will become good in your mind, and you will not be able to tell the difference between good and bad.  He wants to make evil, and things your God.
You may say that the world does not affect you that way.  Well, do you have self-pity, envy, anger, and so on?  All are diversions designed to keep you from the one true God.  You can overcome satan by asking God for forgiveness and guidance.  He is waiting for you.  May God bless you and your family.  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.
Thank You Lord
 Amen
