What does he want to convince you of?
What is the oldest trick of satan?
“For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” – Genesis 3:5
“All this I will give you,” he said, “if you will bow down and worship me.” – Matthew 4:9
The greatest trick of satan is simply this – convince you that you need more than Gods All sufficient Grace, to make you think Gods Love for you is less than what it is! It was true in Old Testament time, the time of Christ and today!
“You will know more” “you will be more” “you will amount to more” “you have to jump through this hoop”- it’s all the same exact satanic crap that comes out of the backside of the one that wants you miserable.
What is God’s plan and goodness for you?
“For God so loved the world that He sent His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him will have everlasting life” “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness” For by Grace you have been saved through Faith and that NOT of works.”- Does any of this sound familiar?
The wholeness of a spiritual journey is this- you have all you need provided to you by the One who Loves you like no other when you need it! Hint Jesus is ALL you need!
Find a time and a place where you probably won’t be disturbed and just take some time to breathe. At first take a few deep breaths just to relax and settle into a focus of being here now. Once you feel a bit more relaxed return to normal breathing and:
Breathe in and say:
“His Grace is”
Breathe out and say:
“Sufficient for me”
Practice this way while you focus on resting in what IS just the way He created it and not on what “should be” “could be” or “maybe”- He has it all in control and He knows what is best.

GREAT ADVICE BOB . SOMETHING ELSE THAT STARTED A FIRE IN THE HEARTS OF BELIEVERS IS PRAYING THE HOLY SPIRIT TO GIVE US A HUNGRY AND THIRSTY FOR GOD’S WORD , GOD’s WILL AND GOD”S WAYS GREATER THAN ALL THE DESIRES WE CHASED BEFORE WE KNEW BETTER. FOR NO ONE COMES UNLESS THE HOLY SPIRIT DRAWS , THIS LEAVES THE FREEDOM OF WILL RULE INTACT AND A HUMAN INVITATION TO ALLOW THE DESIRE TO BE CREATED BY GOD , SO NO FLESH CAN BOAST . BECAUSE THE HOLY SPIRIT IS A GENTLEMEN , ONLY INDWELLING , WHEN INVITED IN , FOR WE TRULY WANT HIM TO GUIDE AND DWELL FROM WITHIN . THE CONFESSION OF THE SALVATION PRAYER ,ROM:10-9 MUST BE SPOKEN WITH A HEART MOTIVE BEYOND , A FEARFUL AWARENESS THAT DEATH IS REAL , AND CONFESSIONS MOVED BY FEAR ( SELF SAVING FAITH } OUT OF FEAR MAY CAUSE FALSE CONVERSIONS , RATHER THAN AGAPE LOVE INSPIRED THANKFULNESS , UNKNOWING PEOPLE WILL FALL FOR THE FORM OF HOLINESS BECAUSE THE FEAR THEY FEEL OF DEATH IS REAL , SO THEY ARE SINCERE BUT STILL HALF HEARTED PRAYER OUT OF IGNORANCE AND MANY ARE MISLED BY THIS ,LED INTO THE DARK CAVE OF GUILT AND SHAME . YOU HAVE ALREADY LEARNED THIS , THE MERCY OF GOD HAS LED YOU OUT OF THAT TRAP , PRAISE THE LORD. AS HE HAS LED ME . I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO A VOICE FACE TO FACE , CHAT IN THE FUTURE WITH YOU . GOD BLESS YOU AND YOU ARE ON THE PRAYER LIST AS MANY OTHER WORKERS IN THE FAITH. GOD WILLING WE WILL TALK SOON.
Thank you for sharing Brother!
