This season that I'm in has had it's fair share of spiritual warfare (that rhymed), but really, Satan has been feeding me lies that are deafening at times. But guess what, those lies do not come from Jesus, they come from Satan, and he is completely powerless. There's so much comfort in knowing that the Lord overpowers Satan, always, and that the He only speaks truth to us. My struggles always seem to surface whenever I'm in a season of growth, and it's because I am acting as a direct threat to Satan and he wants to do everything in his power to hinder that growth.
As 2 Corinthians 5:17 says, “If anyone is in Christ he is a new creation, the old has gone and the new has come.” I am a NEW creation and what's in my past is in my past — all of my trials have & will continue to turn into triumphs because the Lord is so faithful. I know that I have been redeemed and I know that the Lord loves me just as I am, I am exactly where He wants me to be. "Every darkness is exposing a light," and that light is God's goodness and His love shining on us and through us.
