Change is inevitable with us and always a part of our lives. God will never change. He is bound by His word and His promises to us.
God isn’t pleased with us when we stop growing. His desire for us to to keep striving for His righteousness. Because of His covenant with us we will never be defeated or consumed. We can rest in His promises. Change can be a positive experience if we handle it with faith and positive a attitude. For us to please God, we are required to be ever increasing in knowledge and grade of the Lord Jesus. So, to know is to grow.
God will take your battle and make it honor Him. He will use your struggles to draw others to Him. When you put it in God’s hand, it will become a victory and a success. God will make great things when we put it in his hand.
For I am the Lord, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.
Remember the former things of old; for I am God, and there is none like me, declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet don, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure

Beware lest nay man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ
2 Timothy 2:24-26
And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, in meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth; And that they may recover themselves
There is a difference in being possessed by the devil and being oppressed by the devil. Because we are Christians does not mean we will not be attacked by the devil. We are a target. The devil can get much done if he can oppress Christians. We must keep ourselves from becoming captive by and falling into the snares of the devil.
Keep yourself in the word, in prayer, away from disbelief, in church, from speaking lies, from vain imaginations, in relationship with God. Keep yourself in God.
