Here is an excerpt from Chapter Nine titled, "Is God Good?" from my book, "How to Love God with all Your Heart" Copyright 2015.
"In this chapter we will read about God’s goodness and unmask the real enemy. We’ll compare God’s character and plan for our lives with Satan’s agenda for us..."
"Satan’s goal is to fill our minds with lies. He’ll try over and over to lie to us about God’s goodness and love for us.
What does he lie to you about? Does he tell you that you’re unworthy? Does he make you feel insecure, inferior or unloved? He’s done that to me many times.
In the process of writing this book, I started to think I should just give up because I’m not a good writer. I began to believe the enemy’s lies, and then I recognized his negative influence on me. That’s not true! This book will bless many people and I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. The Holy Spirit helped me fight against the father of lies.
Ask God to help you recognize the thoughts in your head. Are they truth based on God’s Word? Or are they thoughts planted by the enemy who wants to deceive you? God will protect and guard your mind in Christ Jesus when you ask Him. You have authority in Christ Jesus and can stop the lies by praying in Jesus’ name. Claim Scripture verses to attack the enemy with the Truth. The Word of God is a powerful weapon against the enemy.
Instead, draw closer to the love of Jesus who is True and Faithful. The truth is that God loves you! If you read His Word, the Bible, you will know this truth. Don't let the enemy lie to you about God's great unconditional love for you. Jesus gave up His life because He thought YOU were worth dying for!
On my next blog, I will talk about Hell and how God doesn't want anyone to perish...
