Freedom In The Truth-A Testimony Of Faith
The Truth "will "set you free
The Truth Matters
Satan tried his best to move on me one night. I wasn't doing very well financially and I had put my name out there for work cleaning houses.
Now here I am considering myself a child of God and I'm looking around saying to myself, nobody else has to stoop this low. I was to work for a woman who attended my church and all I could think about was my standing in the church and how embarrassed I would be if anyone found out. How humiliated I would be. You'd think that would be enough to make me angry.
Then I began thinking how so many others were doing better than I was. I could have turned against God at that very moment. I could have allowed that anger to rage in me. It was then that the Spirit of disernment fell upon me. I began to look at things differently.
You see, it's not about them, it's about me and what God has planned for my life. I needed to trust in him/put my Faith in him! Was I going to hand my life over to Satan on a silver platter over money or prestige? Satan will put many things in the way of our salvation. Pride, anger, envy, jealousy, hatred, resentment and he had put all these before me in a single minute. He was trying to steal My Salvation! Satan wants to steal, kill and destroy.
God doesn't wage war the same way satan does. Satan uses evil thoughts. Satan wars against the flesh but God wars against the evil spirits that try to come upon us/influence us with the Fruits of His Spirit which are Love, Peace, Joy, Gentleness, Goodness, Faith, Meekness, Temperence, Disernment and Long Suffering. These are the fruits of His Spirit.
I could have fallen, but because God gave me the Spirit of disearnment I didn't fall. I was aware of Satans evil schemes. You see, it's not about anyone else, it's about us, you and me and our relationship with God.
Now instead of falling away from God I chose to use this as a testimony to you. We can become stronger and wiser and get out of harms way, if we look to God in ALL things. Satans truth is NOT God's truth! Satans truths are lies and are meant to decieve us/sway us. There is freedom in The Truth. There is healing in the TRUTH and the TRUTH will set us FREE!!!
