When we face impossibilities it gives us the opportunity to trust God. When
we keep our eyes on Christ, everything will come into focus. It should not be
surprising that when trouble interrupts our lives, the father of lies whispers in
our ears and suddenly we are questioning God's goodness. When Jesus tells
us things like this, "Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth" Matt. 6:19.
Satan tells us that the good life is about piling up things here, causing us to doubt
God's good intentions. Our problem is that we, like Adam and Eve, believe Satan's
lies. And when we do, our loyalty to God is compromised. Then our enemy slithers
off to his next assignment, leaving us alone to face our regrets and the realization
that his lies have seduced us away from our truest and dearest Friend. Read the
Bible to be wise, believe it to be safe,practice it to be holy. I cannot say this enough,
if you do not know the Word of God, you will easily believe the lies of the devil. Satan
is the father of deceit. The power of Satan is no match for the power of God's Word.
