Listening to the Father's Heart - June 20
Son, I want to let you in on an age old strategy of our enemy. He has no new methods because these three strategies have worked well for him for literally thousands of years since he fell from heaven. He seeks to defeat and control my sons and daughters through: 1) the lust of the flesh, 2) the lust of the eyes, and 3) the pride of life. Whenever one of my sons or daughters falls, it is due to one or more of these sins. Satan will entice you to fulfill your intimacy needs through your sensual soul nature; he will entice you to acquire possessions to fill empty places in your heart; and he will make you feel like you are more important and special than anyone else. Beware of his schemes, my son. Knowing this and being on guard will allow you to withstand his attacks. I have given you my Spirit so you might overcome every assault (1 Cor 10:13).
Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. 1 John 2:15, 16
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. l Peter 5:8
