Devil doesn’t care about you if you’re lukewarm.
He doesn’t spend his time on you if you’re not walking with God.
He figures he has you.
Right where he wants you.
But if you have life that happens….
If you have big things occur, you must matter.
Pay attention, because the devil sure is.
He knows God has a special plan for your life.
Wants at all costs to stop it.
To make you feel like God doesn’t care when your family falls apart.
To feel like God has turned His back when things don’t go your way.
The devil’s goal is to get you to stop trusting God.
To stop trusting God has your best in mind.
That God still even cares about you.
He wants to keep you busy, unaware of the evil influencing your children.
He wants to keep you blind to the repairs needed in your marriage.
He wants to keep you apathetic to the holes in the relationships that matter.
He wants you to think there’s nothing you could do to help anything.
That God can’t or won’t help or maybe isn’t even there.
He wants to keep you absolutely pathetic.
Because then you’re weak.
The next time you are tempted to sink back into old habits, remember that’s where the devil wants you.
Instead, tell him no way.
Don’t give him the pleasure.
Give the satisfaction instead to God, who has promised to never leave you.
“Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.” Deuteronomy 31:6 (NKJV)
