Word for Today:  July 25


The source of all conflicts.

The Believer is constantly bombarded by conflicts and difficulties.   satan buffets and tries and tests and tempts.  “Many are the afflictions of the righteous…” and we can all say “amen” to that.  We must remember, however, that the “Lord delivereth them (us) out of them all…”  (Psa 34:19).  The Life of Faith is filled with confrontations and conflicts.

Remember, conflicts will control you or YOU will control conflicts.   It is up to you and what you do.  Your spiritual (and natural) success depends on what you know and what you do with what you know.   Some have grown “weary” in well doing.  Some have “run out of gas” spiritually.  Others have retreated from their faith stand and gone back into religion, tradition, doubt and reasoning.

Understand that satan wants to stop you before you go “too far.”   he wants to keep you from getting where God wants you to be.  he will set traps, and build obstacles and release devices and fiery darts to hinder your spiritual growth and development.  he wants you to ease up, let up, and finally give up.  he will move you into doubt and negativism if possible.  he wants to make you an embarrassment to the Church and the Kingdom of God.  he wants you sick and weak.  he wants you stressed and full of worry.  he will turn up the heat and tighten the screws to keep you frustrated and maxed out.  Frankly, he wants you dead and out of his way.

Conflicts come from hell.  God is not the author of conflicts or the Creator of circumstances .  God is a Helper and not a hinderer.  God is a Multiplier and not a subtractor.  God is a Good God and He does Good things.  Obstacles, conflicts, tests, trials, temptations come from the devil.

God is Good.  God does good things. The devil is bad.  The devil does bad things.  God does not do bad things.  The devil does not do good things.
