The Wily Snake

Satan is a wily snake who will take every opportunity to bring strife into situations in order to try to thwart what God has already set in motion.

As human’s we can’t always see the ways he needles his way in and starts whispering lies that are meant to bring destruction. Believing the first lie starts a snowball affect that can ultimately shut off all view of truth and cloud our judgement.

When we let Satan and his lies in, we lose sight of God and begin to rely on ourselves to figure out what is true. We are often wrong.

Don’t allow Satan to get a foothold on your thoughts, don’t allow his lies to become your truths. As with most things, this is so much easier said than done, but through daily communication with the Lord, immersing yourself in His word, and seeking Him at every opportunity, He will show you what is true and what is good. He will bring you peace and not strife.

Strife is not from God.

Ephesians 6:10-17  Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.  For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.  Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.  In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.  Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

James 4:7 Submit yourselves then to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.
