Topic: When the devil wants to deal with you

Highlight:

The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding. Proverbs 4:7

The Bible says "Whoever is slow to anger has great understanding, but he who has a hasty temper exalts folly." Proverbs 14:29. Let's talk about people with great temper over little things; they don't have friends because they always have issues with people around them. If such person will not calm down because they got angry with another fellow and will not accept apologies because they feel they are on their right, such person is on the verge of destruction. Our Lord Jesus said in Matthew 23:11 that "The greatest among you must be a servant". Pride comes before destruction, and an arrogant spirit before a fall. Proverbs 16:8

When the devil wants to deal with somebody, he makes them arrogant and proud so that their eyes is closed to see the embarrassing mistake that will hunt them and their memory for life will not escape the torture. All these things begin from the day they start behaving in opposed to the nine (9) fruits of the Spirit written in Galatians 5:22-23: Though the nine fruits look simple but lack of a single of them is very dangerous. Let's take for example two from the nine fruits of the spirit. Love: Anyone who does not love others will stand a chance of living among fake people because bitterness is the opposite of loving and it causes trouble and defiles many. Hebrews 12:15. Second fruit is Joy; someone who have no joy is always sad or they tend to make other people sad, they seldom make mockery to belittle others and they don't have people to associate with them because they pretend a lot, even when they suffer on their sick bed nobody will bother about them. So when the devil wants to deal with a person, it makes them self sufficient enough to not yielding to anyone's advise and also makes them arrogant.

God wants us Cherish wisdom, and wisdom will exalt us; and to embrace wisdom, and wisdom will honor us. Proverbs 4:8, because wisdom is the principal thing and it's found in the word written in Bible.

This is the opportunity for you to give your life to Christ because it is only Jesus that will give wisdom if you are in the category of people who are arrogant and proud. Confess him as your Lord and savior today and ask for His mercy to transform your life. Find a Bible believing church to join and fellowship with the community of believers because you must dissociate yourself from people who will lead you astray. Start reading your Bible and follow the right path. It may be hard in the beginning. There is a way that appears to be right, but in the end it leads to death. You can enter God’s Kingdom only through the narrow gate. Proverbs 14:13 & Matthew 7:13

Prayer: Lord please teach me the right path to follow and let me learn to grow in your Grace. Do not give devil any chance to have it's way in my life. I plead for your spiritual security by the mercy of your Love in Jesus Christ. Amen.

If Christians would only realize the Spiritual empowerment they have over Satan through that of the indwelling of the Holy Spirit that can move mountains that stand in our way then they can overcome him as Jesus already gave us the victory over the principalities of this world.
