So I had no idea that satan could hear our prayers until a few months back. The bible says in Ephesians 2:1-2 how Satan is the prince of Air. Meaning he is all around you like how the air is around us! That being said, when we pray out loud or even in our thoughts satan can hear those prayers and those cries out to God!
So you must be careful and know What’s of God and what’s of Satan. You crying out to God that your family needs help and to save your mother or brother. Satan will use that prayer request and Test you in that very area! It never fails!!!! Every time I pray for something .. Well most the time– specifically I will get tested on it! For instance , the other day I was praying for my family . Lord save us and keep us saved , Let us be on ONE accord. My WHOLE FAMILY. So Satan is right there listening to. Ready to come attack me on the very thing I need God to help me with! Satan is evil and his purpose is the KILL , STEAL, and DESTROY. –if you allow him. That’s why we gotta stay prayed up , we gotta wake up and shake up our spirit , drop to our knees and pray that God keeps up throughout the whole day! Protecting us with his protective ARMOR. Because the closer you get to God and the more you start to change your life around , Satan sees you as a threat! He didn’t see you as a threat a few weeks back when you was cussing out everybody on the job and having sex with your little boyfriend/girlfriend. But now that you have picked up the card of salvation and wanna do right, Satan wants to bring you back! But trust me sister or brother This is not the time to quit and throw in the towel. This is actually the time to put your boxing gloves on and get in your fighting stance.
Let’s fight! My uncle told me a few weeks back about this “Fight or Flight” mentality. You either going to Take Flight and Give up and stay where it’s comfortable and not try and go through this much needed process that’s going to give you perseverance, or you going to Fight and see that the Lord will be right there holding your hand walking through the pain and suffering and hurt and all the rest that comes with growth. Man if you don’t feel no pain, struggle or some sort of suffering– life might just be sitting still for you. Or this just ain’t your season for that! But like I said in my last post about Its seasons to this, everybody gotta go through them! Rance Allen (One of my favorite groups) says in a song Lifes got ups, just like its got downs, Lifes got smiles just like it’s got frowns”. Man look at Romans 5:3-6 Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; 4 perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5 And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us. So during our trials and hardships, man we might look at it as being TERRIBLE and unbearable but this is maturing us! Building character, and giving us HOPE! Who don’t wanna grow? So I know when I’m hurting and tears are running down my face and it feels like my heart has been ripped out of my chest, I know God is strengthening me. I know God is setting me up and preparing me for the next season.
So when you pray, know that Satan hears all that your saying to God and he is going to throw everything towards you that will cause you to go back to your old ways, and cause you to fly off the edge. So be careful to stay Conscious of your life after praying. Ladies, your praying “God send me a husband!! Hurry God because i’m lonely” — Sure enough Satan can hear your prayers and send you (test you) and bring somebody that will destroy your life and you ain’t even know it because you was too blinded by the good looks and the nice body bru-man was working with. Satan is so evil he comes at you at your current situations just ready to test you and destroy everything about you! — Only if you let him. Wait on the Lord. And pray that God will strengthen you. Look at 2 Corinthians 12:10 That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong. In time of despair, You can say “okay Satan, I know you heard me pray to God about helping me with my attitude and my self control– so this woman that just stepped on my foot and mean mugged me — I ain’t gone trip. Because God gives me peace and joy and self control and kindness ! ”
We must Recognize satans attacks. Your so close! God needs you to stay in this fight! This Christian walk isn’t going to be easy, it’s going to cost you something.(LITERALLY) Just know that God has never left you, he wants you to totally depend on him. You can’t do it on your own! Our flesh isn’t strong enought! But God will strengthen you if you ask! He will deliver you, if you ask! He’s waiting on you. You need his almighty strength.
Keep praying for love, joy, keep praying that God will soften your heart, keep praying for the fruit of the spirit
it’s just a matter of time before God turns those situations around! Prayer works.
Be the light loves,
