Ever feel like the devil is trying to steal your joy and peace? He is! But God has shown us a way to withstand him!
…he is a liar [himself] and the father of lies and of all that is false. (John 8:44 AMP)
The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows). (John 10:10 AMP)
Be well balanced (temperate, sober of mind), be vigilant and cautious at all times; for that enemy of yours, the devil, roams around like a lion roaring [in fierce hunger], seeking someone to seize upon and devour. Withstand him; be firm in faith [against his onset–rooted, established, strong, immovable, and determined]… (1 Peter 5:8, 9 AMP)
…trust (lean on and be confident) in the Lord. (Psalm 4:5 AMP)
…O blessed (happy, fortunate, and to be envied) are all those who seek refuge and put their trust in Him! (Psalm 2:12 AMP)
But I have trusted, leaned on, and been confident in Your mercy and loving-kindness; my heart shall rejoice and be in high spirits in Your salvation. (Psalm 13:5 AMP)
