Satan observes you

28 February 2014, 09:29
“The joy of the LORD is my strength.”

When Satan looks at you and finds you so faithful to God and to his truth – it is like looking at a phenomenon. He looks at you with wonder and amazement. Your conduct, behaviour and faithfulness to God surprise him. He cannot quiet make sense of you. He sees you as a very foolish person a...nd hates you for being so stupid. He cannot believe that you can behave the way you do.

It is also a mystery to him that you are able to praise God despite your condition. Some believers are poor, but they still sing praises to God. While your circumstances dictate that you should be miserable, Satan sees you full of peace, happiness and joy. He tries by all means to frustrate and persecute you, but still sees you with a quiet soul and peaceful. He admires and hates the kind of peace that a believer’s soul has. At times he wonders why he cannot easily destroy the believers. God’s true servants are carefully considered by Satan. They are his number one priority. If you spend more time with God and are always careful to do his will, don’t be surprised when the devil seems to be always busy towards you. You are a hindrance to his plans. He makes plans to remove you from his way. While Satan knows that he cannot successfully and completely destroy God’s elect, but he still tries to fight them. When he cannot destroy God’s people, his other objective is to make them worry. He does not like to see God’s people happy.

No matter what strategy the devil devises towards you, the LORD is more powerful than that. He will not allow anything you cannot handle come your way.
