How many times have we asked our self questions to avoid something we just really don’t want to do? What am I going to wear? I don’t have anything to wear to that event. It was an excuse you used because you just didn’t really want to go. Many times the questions we ask ourselves to bring up challenges are nothing more than excuses. We just do not want to do it. Satan often asked us questions about our intent on living the Christian life and if we listen, they will become our excuse not to trust God. (Matthew 6:31 So do not worry, saying What shall we eat? or What shall we drink? or What shall we wear?) What are you going to do? As a Christian leader, I’ve come to believe this is one of Satan’s favorite questions. I sometimes think he sends out special demons that have one specific task: to whisper this question in the ears of believers: “What are you going to do?” If you listen, the questions increase. The more they increase, the more negative and intense they become. Before long, you think of every possible obstacle on your path. You begin to feel as if nothing is right in your life. There is only one way for you to win: Refuse to listen to Satan. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. As soon as you hear such words, you need to say, Satan, the Lord rebuke you. Stay out of my mind. When you stop creating negative questions, you will start listening to God’s leading. Pastor Don [image: image.png]
