Right Way-Hard Way

By now, most of us know that God has a plan for each of us. That plan is to help us get back to Him at home in Heaven for eternity. When we follow God's plan, our trip is much more satisfying.
Most of us also know that following God's plan can be very difficult at times. So what makes it so difficult? First of all, we can't see the whole finished puzzle. We see only one piece at a time, so it seems to us that it doesn't make any sense. We want the whole picture up front, to see if we like it or not. But perhaps the biggest problem is letting go of what we see as control.
The next thing we must realize is that as soon as we decide to follow God's plan, satan starts to try to stop us. satan is supernatural and has most of the power that goes along with that. He hits us with the world and its so-called pleasures. He keeps looking for our weak spots so he can use them against us.
satan works very hard trying to deceive us, and keep us away from God and His plan. satan is constantly creating diversions, to try to keep us from the truth, because that would be the end of him in our lives.
What is this truth, he is so desperate to keep from us? When we became children of God, He came to live in our hearts. We have the Holy Spirit, and have power over satan. He can only do what we allow him to do. If we keep satan under our feet, we have victory with Jesus.
You have heard most of this before, probably from a number of sources. It bears repeating, because it is the truths, and is vital to our salvation. God has given you power over satan, and it is up to you to use it against your enemy, the devil. 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
