Do you think the ENEMY attacks us by making us want what we cannot have?


Fate gives us what we have whether we like it or not. Whether we have plenty or little, it is our fate. Do you think satan tortures those who long for what they cannot have? Do you think he is happy to have you see the man who ripped your heart into shreds prosper? Why do I ask? Because the pain is hard to stomach sometimes. A shaking suffocating tearful pain. It's not warranted but it is what it is and it hurts like hell and I can only trust God and surrender those emotions to the Lord. That's all I can do at this point. Chapter 6:1-2 in Ecclesiastes is very helpful in helping me to cope.

    ah, but satan DOES care for himself. the bible tells us he is like a roaring lion and knows his time is short. if satan did not care about himself he would not care that his time was short. he would not have rebelled in the first place.

    Verry good point. No matter who you are, what you do, or where you're at, you are faced with some sort of challenge. ;-)

    I don't know what to say. Now I'm even more confused. I feel that God does say no sometimes to what we ask for. He either says yes, no or wait. He does not grant us everything we ask for and maybe we should be thankful for just that but it's hard

    Thank you. I know God loves ALL people. I have to work through my bitterness in order to forgive him. Psalm 37 helps. I pray that God gives me a discerning forgiving transformed heart. I'm only hurting myself.

    Thanks.I feel that this is a lesson I must learn.I will reap what I sow. If I sowed sin, I will reap the consequences one way or another.We all will. I just didn't expect the pain to hit me so hard 8 years later. He's forgotten all about me by now.
