Hey everyone...sorry I've been missing from here for so long. I need some advice. The entire past year, I was doing so wonderful, and had the most blessed year. I had grown so close to God & just recently scheduled my baptism and joined my church. All of a sudden, these thoughts started running through my head, and they are really depressing me. It's like something is trying to get me to curse God. I don't know if the enemy is attacking me or what's going on, but this happened a few years ago, and I have no idea what it is. It makes me fearful that b/c of these horrible thoughts, that I will go to hell. I need some type of Bible verse to support myself and keep my faith sturdy. I'm trying to lean on God, but I feel like I've gone too far in my thoughts and that I'm condemned. Is this just the enemy's way of fooling me?? Thanks, brothers & sisters...

adiaglow, when I drew closer to God, I too had negative thoughts and feelings. I was told that it was Satan trying to get you to doubt the Lord and turn from Him.
When this happens, when the devil trys attacking me through my thoughts and feelings, I continuously remind myself what God has done for me, how much Jesus loves me, enough to die for me even though I didn't deserve it! Some scripture that I found that helps are as follows:
Psalm 23 - the whole thing
Psalm 91 - the whole thing
Ephesians - the whole book
These are very inspirational and help to remind you that God is there to protect you and in Ephesians it talks of the armor of God and tells you some things to do to draw closer to Him.
Also, some advice I got from a very good friend:
Give it to God and let go of it. It was described to me as, if you have an annoying person in your life, you just shut them out and don't think about them anymore. When you do think of them, you make yourself stop and think on other things. Well, shut these thoughts out and think on good things.
I will be praying for you.

Did the thoughts that you had make you feel like you were thinking them & not the enemy? The guilt is horrible & thats whats killing me along with them.
I will read throught those verses...I really appreciate your prayers & advice. You have a way with words. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Yes adiaglow, the devil is very subtle.
Do you think that people would do half of the things that they do if they knew that it came from Satan? Or think half of the things that they think?
So many more people would have turned to God before this if the devil let people know that he was the evil that comes into their lives, hearts and minds. But he is subtle, and so most people don't even know he is there. They think of him as living far off in hell, but in reallity, he is at your shoulder, trying to make you renounce God and become his for all eternity.
That's why loving the Lord and being in His word is such a battle. And an ongoing battle as well. Thats why the bible, the book of Ephesians, talks about putting on the Armor of God, is so that you are prepared to fight that battle.
God wants you to draw near to Him, and you can't do that as long as Satan has a finger grip on your heart. So put on the armor and shut the devil out!
God bless you adiaglow. I'm glad you're here!

Dear Adiaglow,

Praise the Lord! In your prayers you are in warfare and was led to seek, and have received His wise counsel through Lordsria and Chad. Iron sharpens iron! Jesus gives us the power to overcome the enemy. We are victorious;

Luke 10:20 "However, do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you (been defeated), but rejoice that your names are written in heaven."

Brother Chad, sister Lordsria, lol! After reading your posts I am so glad we are on the same team. God's army, amen?

Your brother in Christ Jesus.

Thank you so much, Michele...

One of my friends posted this in her journal today...
2 CORINTHIANS 4:18 NIV
So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
You may not realize it -- but problems often "speak" to you.
They say things like, "You can't get rid of me. I'll be with you as long as you live."
"Your parents died from this and you will, too."
"Your family was poor and you'll always be poor. You'll never have abundance. You'll never get out of debt."
Actually, it's the demonic forces behind the problems that speak to our minds -- trying to keep us in doubt and unbelief.
We must resist those thoughts -- and the first step is to talk back!
We should speak to thoughts of doubt and unbelief that are contrary to what God has said in His Word -- for His Word is truth.
Don't be passive. Resist!
The Bible tells us to resist the devil. That means to resist his thoughts and ideas, too.
Long ago, God gave mankind dominion on earth. That dominion included naming things. You still have that form of dominion today. If you name your troubles as "yours" and "permanent" -- they will stay. But if you call them "temporary" -- they will eventually leave.
Jesus told us to speak to our mountains and tell them to be gone. But what should you say after you have spoken to the mountain and it's still there?:
TEMPORARY!
SAY THIS: My circumstances are subject to change!
