Do you think it’s possible to look at a Satan attack in a positive way?
Have you ever been on the hamster wheel and you are just moving and moving, trying to move in the direction that you think God is taking you on? But nothing’s happening!?!?! That’s what I’m going through right now and evil is coming at me!
I bet you can relate: I feel that I am actually following the direction that God has led me on, yet it’s a very slow process. There will be so many times in your life where you feel that you’re waiting and waiting for God to respond. As a Christ-follower, patience is definitely something we learn to deal with often. This verse could not be more true!
For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord.
For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts.
As I have been praying and praying that I am following the path God has me on, some really crazy things started happening. Crazy technological things with my online business that I totally don’t understand. Things such as: my membership site (the God’s Gals Tribe, where my daily devotionals and Bible study are housed) literally just shut down for no reason. All the pages were gone, all the images were gone and nowhere to be found. I then had a free gift I was giving out to all of my followers online, the link completely stopped working. It had always worked before but now, nada!!! And might I add, I had approximately 300 women interested in getting this free gift!!

So what do you do when Satan attacks? I say, let’s put a real positive spin on it!! I’m obviously not God, I don’t know His plans or His ways, but I can’t help but think this is Satan coming in trying to tear things down. What if I am getting closer and closer to where God is leading me and Satan is not liking that one bit???
Have you ever noticed that the closer you get to God and the more you start growing in your faith, that’s when attacks start coming at you left and right?? Satan does not like that one bit! Satan realizes he needs to put a stop to us ever getting closer to the Lord and closer to His plan for us.
Do you think an attack by Satan can be a good thing? It’s not that we enjoy the attack; there’s nothing good about it. But why don’t we change the way we view these attacks??? Let’s change our mindset towards those attacks. The great news is…This means you are one step closer to the Lord and you’re one step closer to fulfilling the plan that He has for your life!!!
If that’s the case, tell Satan, “you can’t win, Satan! My God is always victorious!”
How do we keep our focus on the Lord and not allow Satan to monopolize our thoughts and actions?
- Pray daily and never cease
- Spend time in His Word, daily!
- Have godly friends pray for you and seek their counsel
- Worship Him daily
- Spend time doing good for others
- Join a Bible study to be around more uplifting godly friends
- Don’t be afraid because God is always by our side
Only be strong and very courageous, being careful to do according to all the law that Moses my servant commanded you. Do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may have good success wherever you go. This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord, your God is with you wherever you go.Joshua 1:7-9
God will always win, Satan will not win! If Satan is attacking you right now, maybe this means that you’re getting closer and closer to God’s plan for your life; that you’re getting closer and closer to taking that step on the path that God has created for you. And, of course, Satan will do all that he can to stop that!
