A Simple Clarification

A Simple Clarification

If we desire something that satan can give us, it’s not of God, but of this world. The enemy has beautifully packaged, hand-crafted gifts to fulfill our inner desires, and he will tempt us every chance he gets.

If satan has things we want, he will never stop baiting and manipulating us. But if we only desire what God can provide, the enemy has no stronghold in our lives.

“When tempted, no one should say, ‘God is tempting me.’ For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone.” —James 1:13.

Let that soak in. It’s a common misconception that God tempts us, but that’s false; He’s above the schemes of the devil.

So, what is it that you desire the most?

Personally, my inspiration for writing this article came after seeing countless relationship posts urging women to, “Wait for the man who…” Who what? Treats us like royalty? Does and says things that tantalize the ego? Rolls out the red carpet and worships the ground we walk on?

Oh, so you mean wait for an empty vessel in the form of the “perfect man,” who idol worships me with endless compliments, material gifts, and lust as if I’m some goddess? No, thanks. Christian women can’t be bribed by vanity. Satan has a thousand men who can satisfy my flesh in this way and he sends them toward me all the time. But God has only one man who can satisfy the craving in my heart for a soul connection. I will recognize this man by the fruit of HIS spirit, and nothing else.

Keep your wolves in sheep’s clothing; I’m all set. You have nothing I want, satan. In fact, it’s ME that YOU want, and you’ll never have me. You can never touch daughters of the King… Bet that stings, peasant.
