When the Devil Says You Can’t


I have spent a lot of time over the years listening to the devil tell me I can’t do what God has called me to do. Sadly, I did a lot of listening and ending up afraid, worried, down, discouraged, doubtful, confused, overwhelmed, stressed out, etc. But praise God I learned no matter what the devil says, no matter what the world says, no matter what my flesh says, when God calls me to do something, He will enable me to do it. And so it is I have now spent five years on the road for the Lord full-time with my special needs ministry dogs loving and serving Him with all my heart, telling the world about Jesus, helping people find and follow Him, going from place to place, from person to person, writing books, writing devotional messages online, caring for my beloved ministry dogs, and doing my very best to fulfill God’s calling for my life. I have NOT done this in my weakness for my glory. I have done it in God’s strength for HIS GLORY. And I have strong encouragement for anyone listening to the devil’s lies that you can’t do what God has called you to do.

Friend, please turn from your sins, believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and in His death and resurrection, turn your life over to God and His ways, receive His forgiveness and the promise of a forever relationship with Him, be filled with His Holy Spirit, be led by His Spirit, and read the Bible and live by it. Pray to God for His will for your life and be bound and determined in the strength of Christ for the glory of Christ to fulfill His will for you each and every day. And no matter what the devil tells you to try to convince you that you can’t do what God calls you to do, please submit to God, resist the devil, and follow Jesus!

Truth is we CAN do what God calls us to do! By the power of His Holy Spirit who lives inside His followers and through God’s love and provision, we absolutely can! Yes, we can! Hallelujah! Glory be to the Lord, AMEN!

“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. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.” James 4:6-8 NKJV

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13 NKJV
