Job 12:16 With Him are strength and sound wisdom; the deceived and the deceiver are his.
Victory is yours for the choosing! Satan may come against all that you have but He never has the upper hand on God – God owns him! Satan may be lying to you today about your situation trying to make you feel as though all is hopeless and lost but God is still on His throne and always will be so Satan has nothing but lies to offer you today.
In the story of Job, Satan not only attacked him on every level he also sent Job’s friends to lie to him and condemn him. Have you ever had a friend that seemed to “kick you while you were down”? Worse yet, have you ever been the friend holding Satan’s hand kicking someone else when they were down? Don’t allow Satan and his lies to defeat you! Rise up and know that you have victory and that God is still in control and the best place you can be in today is to believe and trust God to bring what is best to pass!
Get on your knees today and ask God for His help, His wisdom, His protection and His victory in your situation then get up and praise Him for all He is about to do! His answer may not always be what you are expecting but His answer will come and it will always be the answer that is best for the “big picture” in your life. You may not see it all right now and understand but know that you can trust Him to do what is right and best.
Since we can see in this verse that strength and sound wisdom are from the Lord and that He owns the deceiver, Satan, then why do we allow Satan to continue making us feel defeated and down? Satan will never bring you truth or strength about your situation so rebuke Him and move on! Make sure that what you are speaking and believing about your situation line up with scripture and if it doesn’t then fix it! Start writing down and speaking the truth and you will find your strength for your situation will be renewed!
