Hearing Voices


I posted the above picture on Facebook today after hearing of Satan attacking another person trying to better their life and pursue their dreams.  It's so obvious that Satan is aware many of us are making great progress towards the desires of our hearts, to live the life God has planned for us.  I've received several messages these past few weeks from women and men trying to get started on their weight loss journey, or to not give up on it, and are feeling overwhelmed by the challenges they face. 

I can't help but think it's a little exciting... it means we're headed for greatness!!

Satan's gonna do his thing.  It's a fact.  When you start making positive changes in your life and begin growing closer to God, Satan gets nervous.  He's a hater.  He doesn't want you to succeed.  He wants you to give up and remain a prisoner of depression and misery, and a slave to laziness, overeating, and other addictions.  He wants you to embrace the victim mentality and focus on the negative things in life.  He doesn't want you to be fruitful.  He doesn't want you to be happy.  He doesn't want you to do the things you're passionate about.  He doesn't want your God-given dreams to come true.
 

...BUT SATAN'S NOT THE BOSS OF YOU.

YOU decide if you'll be a victim or an overcomer!
YOU decide if you'll focus on the negative or the positive!
YOU decide if you'll keep watching T.V. or get up and move - even if it's for 10 minutes!
YOU decide if you'll eat until you're stuffed or be satisfied when you're politely full!
YOU decide if you'll give up or make your dreams come true!

"The devil made me do it" is a cop-out.  It's not being accountable for your actions, not taking responsibility, and not owning it.  Satan doesn't make you do a thing. You know right from wrong.  This is your life and YOU decide what you will and won't do!!!

God speaks to us.  Satan does, too.  Start paying attention to the voices you're hearing and determine who's voice it is.  The more aware you become, the easier it will be to mute the wrong one.  Trust God and let Him lead.  Our success and happiness in life depend on it!
