Happy Friday to you!
One of the characteristics of the devil is that he is a liar. He will attempt to get you to believe things about yourself and your circumstances that are utterly false. His hope is that the lies will weaken you to the point of destruction. The moments where life seems toughest are when the enemy likes to draw your attention. When your income is low, the enemy likes to discourage you and get you to complain. When there is division amongst your family, the enemy likes to play on emotions and deepen the divide. When sickness takes over your body or your mind, the enemy likes to get you to believe that you’ll never get well. When there are problems in your career, the enemy likes you to believe that there are no solutions. Thank God that Jesus has already overcome satan and the world.
In Christ, there is a perfect solution to every dilemma.
Your duty each day is to refocus on God. In your own strength, you will not be able to overcome every single dart that the enemy throws your way. Remember, the Bible says that the spirit is willing; yet, the flesh is weak. There will be times where your flesh will want to react to the lies of the enemy. In those moments, you have to make a decision to pursue God with all your might. Glorify God and submit to Him completely. That is the only strategy by which you can have victory over the enemy. God will equip you with strength, power, and authority to live your best life. When you’re frustrated, God will give you peace and comfort. When you lack, God will provide. When you’re lonely, God will fill the void places in your life with the right things. God has sent His Holy Spirit to comfort and instruct us. He will help you to have a stronger prayer life. He will help you to respond to challenging situations with wit and wisdom. He will heal every sickness in your life and bring light to every dark place.
You may already be aware of the truth. Or, this may be your first time receiving the aforementioned message.

It’s important for you to remember that putting God first is the only way to live triumphantly.
