ME-attitudes…

“so that Satan will not outsmart us. For we are familiar with his evil schemes”… 2 Corinthians 2:11

Schemes are also known as devices and the enemy has several. Yet it is important to realize that he has continued to use the same ones from the beginning since they continue to work.

In fact, Satan has his own set of beatitudes that should rightfully be renamed “me-attitudes” since they are aimed on getting us to focus on ourselves rather than God.

Blessed are those who are too tired, too busy, too distracted to spend an hour once a week with their fellow Christians in Church…they are my best workers.

Blessed are those who wait to be asked and expect to be thanked… I can use them in my business.

Blessed are those who are touchy. Soon they will stop going to church… verily, they shall be my missionaries.

Blessed are those who sow gossip and trouble… they are my beloved children.

Blessed are those who have no time to pray… for they are MY prey.

Blessed are those who gossip… for they are my secret agents.

Blessed are you when you read this and think it has everything to do with other people, and nothing to do with you… I’ve got room for YOU at my inn.

Satan’s advantage is based upon us being “ignorant of his devices or schemes” and if we are aware of the methods Satan uses to lead people astray, we can resist him successfully!

“So humble yourselves before God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you”. James 4:7
