As I looked back on this post, written below, I thought: Wow, Lots has happened since I wrote this blog post. This was the third post I wrote, almost five years ago. I wish I could have told myself when I wrote this post, “Read this daily!” Satan has thrown many darts at me over the last five years. He tried to crush me, step on me, convict me. My faith was tested and tried. I know how imperfect a person I was back then, even more today. I thought I was beyond falling, but I was wasn’t. I came to such a low point in my life a couple years ago, that I almost lost that faith. Satan told me that Jesus doesn’t love you. Look at what he has allowed you to go through. He told me that I was nothing to God and I believed him. I questioned over and over again how something like that could happen to me. I loved God, tried to serve God, but I felt like I was trampled upon by the Devil himself. I know now that I deceived and lied to by Satan himself. I thought I was doing things of God but it wasn’t God who I was serving. I had became something that I thought I would never become. I was sharing things that the Devil told me, but thought they were prophecies of God. Oh how I wish I could have undone those things. I know I can never go back, but I have prayed for God’s forgiveness many times.
All I can say today is be on guard! Read your Bible, pray and ask for guidance by God. Because the Devil is a liar, deceiver and he is walking about looking for someone to deceive, especially a Christian. When you think you are above being deceived, be warned, because you are not. It took me months to come out of that deception in my life. I try to warn people of false prophets out there today who claim they hear from God, but don’t. They are deceived. Don’t listen to them. Keep looking up because Jesus will return one day and he will call his people home, but we must be careful and be on guard. Pray, seek God, trust God.
Many things come to mind when I think of things that I could have done better in my life. I think about all of my past failures, things that I shouldn’t have done, things that I could have done differently. There is no way to undo the past. There is only today and the future to come that a person can live for. After I looked at all of my past mistakes, I am reminded that God forgives us of all transgressions if we only we ask him to. For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23)
We can look at the terrible things that others are doing but we must look at our own mistakes too. We need to examine our own lives first, then we can see God’s love and forgiveness….places where God has forgiven us. Did we deserve his forgiveness? I…
