Failure is not an option
This statement has never been truer than when referring to your soul.
This Earth, this World, is a war zone, a spiritual war zone, every moment of every day. Satan and his demons want to steal your peace, joy and happiness. John 10:10 KJV The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. They are working around the clock to ensure your life is filled with failures of all shapes and sizes so you begin to lose faith. They want you to lose your faith in humanity, in your government, and most importantly they want you to lose your faith in God.
Satan wants your life to be filled with negativity and oppression so you begin to think and act negatively to others and live life in a state of hopeless. He wants us over worked so we begin to hate our dead end job. Underpaid so we barely make ends meet. He wants our superficial desires so great that they become either unobtainable where we become envious of people who have them or put us in a perpetual debt barely making minimum payments on our credit cards.
We are led to think we are free because we can come and go as we please, wear the clothes we want, listen to the music we want and say whatever we want to say. However, we are just as oppressed and as the slaves of the past generations. The difference is that we no longer use torture devises of whips and chains, today’s version of whips and chains are cars and jewelry. You see Satan has finally realized the way to get more souls to worship and obey him is to have a person willingly enslave themselves.
So the question becomes how do we not fail? How do we not give our soul to Satan but preserve it and guard it from evil so God can pour out his blessing and grace upon us?
God is very clear in the Bible that we must not fall victim to the temptations of the world. He gave us many verses in the Bible telling us that the world hates us. 1 Timothy 6:10, 1 John 2:15-17, Matthew 6:24, Hebrew 13:5, Romans 8:13.
We will focus on 1 John 3:13 KJV Amp. Do not be surprised and wonder, brethren, that the world detests and pursues you with hatred.
Satan has twisted the word of God and made it into a religion where it is filled with rules and regulations, most so unrealistic, we are doomed to fail before we began. Satan has made the world seem fun; he has lured us in with the flash, drugs, music and idols. Once we are hooked either by addiction or debt the world begins to show its true colors. We begin to see that the deck has been stacked against us from the moment we began mingling in the world and getting out becomes impossible.
Good news, the moment you realize you cannot succeed on your own and sincerely surrender everything to God and cry out for help he will jump into action and begin battling the spiritual strongholds keeping you oppressed. You will begin to see positive changes in your life almost instantaneously.
