THANKS, HELP, SHOW ME MY PART

When the devil attacks, it is often useful to concede his observation but not his conclusion.

For example, he will point out “you are too weak ” and then conclude that you might as well go ahead and sin, since you will just fall in the end”, OR,” try try try to be  stronger” OR, “hate yourself for being a weakling”.         The counter attack is not to deny my weakness, but to agree “without God I can do nothing” that’s pretty weak!  BUT BUT BUT! I AM NOT WITHOUT GOD, and with him I can do all things. I can bear any trial and find the strength to not sin and to do the will of God. Philippians  4.13 ; I Corinthians 10.13

The devil will  point out that you are either worthless ( or if he thinks you are really deluded) that you are actually pretty good. He will then conclude that you should hate yourself, or try to earn worth or find someone to criticize so that you feel a little less worthless or to conclude that your good deeds are better than the average so you have indeed earned your worth and God will owe you a place of honor in heaven.       The counter attack is to loudly proclaim with the apostle Paul that you are the chief of sinners 1 Timothy 1.15 and that all  your acts of righteousness are as filthy rags. Romans 7.18.  BUT I HAVE BEEN PURCHASED WITH AN INFINITE PRICE AND THEREFORE AM OF INFINITE WORTH THAT IS INDESTRUCTIBLE

IN JESUS.  Luke 12.7

The devil will point out that your future is shaky and insecure. He will then conclude that you should lay up treasure on earth, should push for more influence and  power.      The counter attack is to assert that I AM IMMORTAL WITH TREASURE IN HEAVEN, A MANSION AND THAT I AM AN AWESOME BEING DESTINED TO BE THE BRIDE OF THE CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE!
