Be Watchful

by | Aug 28, 2013

Ladies, I have been receiving emails and comments here that some of you are not receiving your email copy of the Devotions every day.  If you haven’t let me know I ask that you please do.  We are trying to figure out what is going on and how many of you aren’t getting them.  I would also like to ask you to share today’s study on Facebook, Twitter and or email just in case someone you know isn’t receiving their emails either and of course we would love to reach as many ladies as possible for God!  Thank you so much for your help with this!


1 Peter 5:8-9  Be sober, e vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.  Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.

Bill and I both grew up in rather conservative homes where we didn’t talk much about the spiritual world surrounding us but over the years we have both had to face situations that have made us both very aware that Satan is alive and working!  He wants to destroy you, your marriage, your children and he wants to rob you of your blessings!  He is a liar!

One of the biggest attacks that Satan seems to come after us with are lies and I know that as women you all know what I am talking about.  Satan does his best to beat up every woman I have ever known with his lies of; you aren’t pretty enough, you are too heavy – you will never lose this weight, you are too needy, you are not enough, you will never accomplish what you need to accomplish, you can never change!  Once again I say, Satan is a liar!  Those are all lies straight from hell and it is time to stop believing them!  God wants to empower you today and He wants to use you in a great way, it is time to get in agreement with God and throw out the lies that Satan has impressed on you over the years!

In Jeremiah 13:25 it says, “This is your lot, the portion I have measured out to you, declares the Lord, because you have forgotten me and trusted in lies.”  Is that what you want?  Do you want to miss out on the blessings of God because you have chosen to believe Satan’s lies instead of believing God when it comes down to who you are?  God has a plan for you, don’t give up hope and don’t believe the lies!  Choose to believe Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for good and not for evil to give you a future and a hope.

It is your choice whom you will believe, I would encourage you to start today to change the way you think.  Start recognizing the lies of I can’t etc and write down the truths that God has for you that say, “yes, you can”.  I  program Bible verses, positive sayings and affirmations into my phone to go off every two hours to remind me of who I am in Christ and every time I find another lie that Satan throws at me I am going to add scripture to this list to battle the lie.  I don’t want to spend another moment believing and trusting in Satan’s lies and not trusting the Lord of Lords!

    AMEN! One of the worst lies from Satan I have dealt with is that you are alone in your struggles! YOU ARE NEVER ALONE! Not only is God ALWAYS with you, but if you look closely, He places people in your life that are good listeners or maybe they have shared a similar experience to what you are going through.

    Thank you for being such an encouragement and following God! How do you I program Bible verses, positive sayings and affirmations into my phone? I would greatly appreciate the help staying focused.

      It depends on what phone you have, but I have an Iphone and it has a reminder app that I can put reminders in and I use that. If your phone doesn’t have a reminder app already you may be able to find a free one.
