Christians face trials all the time. Those who unlock the secret of walking with God face the 'wrath' or the attempt of wrath from Satan. But realise Satan is but a caged tiger who can roar all he wants, but at a closer look he is toothless. Jesus shamed Satan, and his status is beneath us. We are at the high place, seated at the right hand of God in Christ.

Personal experience:
As a moderator, it would be more difficult for me to declare my stand, because people do click on my profile, and I want to use it as an opportunity to spread the truth, even so I spend some time facing mod haters who try to hurt you with their words, but you know, even though I in my flesh am truly hurt that seeing the fruit of people who speak such vulgarity, know that the person is under the law and under the bondage of hatred, reject God so, it hurts me more at rejection of God than it hurts my ego.

But the Lord is our confidence. Love shares burdens. Therefore, I shared the hurt that Jesus feels everytime someone rejects him. It's painful, but Jesus never stopped loving. That is the true greatness of God's love.

It is certainly trying for us Christians to stand up against people like that. Don't let them influence you. Let not your heart be worried, neither let it be afraid. Guard your heart, God will guard everything.

As expected, praising the Lord brings the sting out of harsh words, and heals the spirit. I would like all of you to guard your hearts properly. Sit well in the spirit, then you'll walk confidently and stand up against the devil. This is spiritual warfare, take care of the worldly things, items such as money is not evil, but a natural man's motives are.

You have to keep in mind that spirit and natural man do not mix. Our real person is a spirit, born again. Our flesh and soul rely on the 5 senses and logic and reason. Jesus is of a faith spirit, his children receive His nature of Love that is giving, but natural man retains the nature of Satan - selfishness. Satan's love is but temporary, and always ends in pain. That is the love that the world despairs. Satan wants people to love the wrong way, and despise it so natural man give up the notion to seek the love that their heart craves for.

Beware of voices that point you back to yourself. Satan cannot do anything to those of us realise that we are the righteousness of God in Christ, because then God fights the battle for us, and when God comes in the picture, the devil is nothing but shamed and defeated before God.

Deut 28 says that your enemies will come at you in 1 way and flee in 7 ways, because from yourself in Christ, you shine the no. 7 of perfection. They will be defeated before your face, and you will see the downfall of your enemies.

Therefore, when fighting battles, let the Lord do it for you. Whatever strength you need, ask it in the name of Jesus.

Mmhm! You are so right! God is so strong! Satan may seem strong. He is evil. He doesn't just want to play around with us, throwing a temptation here and there to mess around with us. He wants to devour us as Christians. He wants to destroy us, so that we won't lead anyone else to Christ. But our God is so much stronger than Him! We can rely on His strength, for when we are weak, He is strong!

God's will for us is to suffer while doing good. Satan attacks two types of people, unbelievers, and strong believers. People who aren't strong christians aren't going to be attacked much at all, because they aren't a threat. If we are suffering while doing good, it means that Satan is attacking us. It means that Satan finds us a threat, he is afraid of what God will use us for. If you are suffering, do not be discouraged! Fight through it, and rely on God, for Satan is the second most powerful being in the world. But with God, we are so much stronger than Satan!

Yes, precisely what I wanted to say, strong believers have to do nothing but rely on Him for comfort. Strong believers and non-believers have a rift between us, and that's the distance that Satan wants to enforce. It's too bad, if our enemies will be defeated before us, all we have to do is to walk through it like how Moses opened the Red Sea. When that happens, the Devil will try to psycho non-believers to walk further.

But God is good, he'll shine the path to him.

Imagine a dark room, pitch black. Even if there is a pinhole of light it will be visible! Whereas, in a room of brightness, people don't go towards the dark spots shrouded in shadows. When they've tasted the goodness of God, they won't want to be alone anymore.

That's so true. The difference between some Christians, is that some just use God to help them with problems. Then when they get what they want, they just leave Him.

And we are all beacons of light in a dark world. Our souls hold little pieces of Heaven. It shines as bright as the sun. And is always there. It may be dimmed or covered, but it will always be there for anyone who seeks for a little piece.

God will always be there. Like your childhood best friend, you'll always find him/her there. He's stronger than anything, and will overcome anything and will always prevail. It's not just our optimism, it's all our faith.
