Illusion

The thoughts we take and the voices we listen to have the power to influence our lives.  Many times we are not aware of the ways that we agree with the enemy about the things he says to us.  We will look at some of the common deceptions that we tend to believe.

  1. Paralyzed by Fear: Running From God http://bit.ly/25MsGAM Every good and perfect gift comes from above. I knew that and in other seasons I knew that it was my job to be a good steward of the gifts I had been given. Satan is a liar and the father of it, there is no truth in him. Even though I know these things to be true, I still allow the whispers of deceit to cause me to question what I know to be true. Somehow I believed that since God wanted me to write it, that it was going to be easy. When it became clear that was not true and the fear began to strangle me, I decided it was easier not to write. #Fear #God Paralyzed by Fear: Running From God (6/21/2016) - Every good and perfect gift comes from above.

  2. How to Recognize Satan's Voice is the Temptation to Question God http://wp.me/p6Qmw4-c6 If I am paying attention I can listen closely to the words of the people around me and I can hear the whispers of the enemy.

  3. Unlock Truth Never Neglecting Your God Given Authority http://wp.me/p6Qmw4-dA Did you realize that you are aligning with satan and giving him access and authority over your life? You are each time that you agree with the enemy that the old self is alive and well. Think about it if you have someone dead in front of you and you speak to them they are incapable of responding. So why are we continually trying to resurrect our old selves who we didn't like? #Identity #Inheritance #IntentionalLiving #SpiritualAuthority Unlock Truth Never Neglecting Your God Given Authority (8/4/2016) - Did you realize that you are aligning with satan and giving him access and authority over your life? You are each time that you agree with the enemy that the old self is alive and well. Think about it if you have someone dead in front of you and you speak to them they are incapable of responding. So why are we continually trying to resurrect our old selves who we didn't like? I can't imagine anything worse than getting to heaven and seeing all the plans God had for my life. And For God to say "look what I had for you to do" and realizing that I failed to stand in the power and authority that I had. Therefore not living out the plans that God has for me.
  4. Freedom Found Resting on What Jesus Accomplished At the Cross http://wp.me/p6Qmw4-eV We forget God began the work in us and therefore it is up to him to finish it. When we forget it is God's job to finish we try to take on a responsibility that is not ours. We begin to strive to be something, to do something, and we stress ourselves out.  The truth is God began a good work in you and that means He is responsible for finishing the work. Which means we get to rest and enjoy the journey. #Identity #IntentionalLiving Freedom Found Resting on What Jesus Accomplished At the Cross (8/23/2016) - We forget God began the work in us and therefore it is up to him to finish it.

  5. Cutting and Depression is Affected by Spiritual Warfare (8/30/2016) - As I continue to grow in my relationship with Jesus I learn new things daily. Part of this season that I am in comes with a focus on deceptions I have believed. And a greater awareness of the spiritual battle all around me. When I was in my worst depression I said to myself and to others that "I am in the fight of my life and I can't afford to lose." That was true then. I find it even truer now. God is revealing that I am still in the fight of my life and I still can't afford to lose.
  6. Applying the Spiritual Armor October 25, 2016, http://bit.ly/2hBQj8z When you know that your mind is the battlefield you need a strategy that will not fail.  One of the things that I have found for me is that if I am not careful my thoughts will lead me down paths I do not need to be on.  Every time my mood takes a serious hit it can often be because I failed to control my thought life.

  7. A Pattern to Spiritual Attacks http://wp.me/p6Qmw4-kf January 10, 2016 I was learning things but I felt like I had no clear authority from which to speak.  I couldn't explain why I knew the things I did or tell you I learned it this way.  The things I was learning came mostly from divine inspiration of the Spirit.  I was beginning to get an education on spiritual warfare.  It was the strangest thing.  I was always blind to the battles around me...until suddenly I wasn't.  So I hesitated to try to share.  Speaking on Spiritual Attacks: Why and What I have Seen (1/10/2017) - I was learning things but I felt like I had no clear authority from which to speak.

  8. A Pattern to Spiritual Attacks January 12, 2016, As I was going about my reading I came to the part where Jesus is taken to the wilderness. It was here that God began to reveal some things to me that I found fascinating. A clear pattern of questions from the enemy and an outline of attack against us. I have the feeling that from here on out I will be much more aware of the ways these thoughts come across my mind in the future recognizing this as an attempt of the enemy against me. I hope that this proves helpful for you also. A Pattern to Spiritual Attacks (1/12/2017) - As I was going about my reading I came to the part where Jesus is taken to the wilderness.

  10. Nothing to Prove {Book Review } (3/20/2017) - If I were your enemy, this is what I would do: Make you believe you need permission to lead. Make you believe you are helpless. Make you believe you are insignificant. Make you believe that God wants your decorum and behavior.
