I was heartbroken when the Lord called me to leave behind New York City where I absolutely LOVE being and doing ministry to return to Florida for ministry where I desperately did not want to return. Imagine my surprise when I got to Florida and in my online Florida housing search NEW YORK CITY KEPT POPPING UP! Felt like the devil taunting and tempting me!
No matter how hard and how often and in whatever ways the devil comes at us with his taunts and temptations, we MUST SAY NO TO SATAN AND YES TO THE LORD JESUS CHRIST!
When we honestly desire to love, please, honor, and obey God and humbly submit to Him and cry out to Him in prayer, He by the power of His Holy Spirit will give us the strength we need to faithfully follow Him and victoriously reject the devil and his temptations.
“But He gives more grace. Therefore He says: “GOD RESISTS THE PROUD, BUT GIVES GRACE TO THE HUMBLE.” Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you…” James 4:6-8 NKJV
