It’s impossible to be a Christian and believe the devil isn’t real.
If he wasn’t real, there would be no need for a Saviour.
It is easy to get caught up in the feel-good aspects of Christianity and ignore the fact that we are in a spiritual war.
Every single day, there is a battle being fought for our souls.
Dark stuff right?
So today I remind myself of a few things:
1. The devil’s aim is to make my life as miserable as possible so that I will cease to believe in a loving, caring God.
2. He will use people to try to accomplish that goal.
3. The same way in which he can use someone else, I too can allow myself to be used based on how I respond to the situation.
4. Everyone is struggling; my struggle is different from yours, but let us both be kind.
Christianity is not an easy road to walk. We will stumble at times. But when God is for you, no weapon formed against you can prosper.
Because He did, we can.
