“Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” (James 4:7 ESV)
“Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.” (1 Peter 5:8 ESV)
Ever have one of those days where nothing goes right no matter what you do? It could be a day where you drop everything you pick or just a lousy day.
Let me reassure you, God didn’t do it to you. The devil did it. The devil will do his best to keep your focus off God. But you can one up the devil. Laugh at him. He hates laughter. I have had days where I couldn’t do anything right no matter how hard I tried. But I discovered laughter changes my mood. I would just start laughing and pretty soon I felt better and my attitude had changed.
God wants us happy. I know there’s not much to be happy about these days, but there is always something to smile about. A baby’s smile, a sunrise or sunset, a kiss and hug from your kids and grandkids. Those can make me smile no matter how bad a mood I may be in. God knows we have problems and they are going to get worse before they get better. Don’t believe me? Read Revelation and then get back to me. The end is near! Remember back when people would march around with signs saying the end is near? Well, it’s true. The end is near.
I believe it. But Satan wants us in the dark. Well I say not today! I will spend the rest of days serving God. How about you? Ready to take a stand against evil? We can all fight together. Let’s make Satan sorry he ever messed with us.
Have a great day.
