WHAT TO DO WHEN SATAN HAS HIS EYE ON YOU
Stephan Kirby, Pastor, House of Prayer Baptist Church, Louisville, KY
Read: Luke 22:31-32
First of all, know this, Satan wants you and everything you love destroyed. Your dreams, relationships, happiness, children, future, he wants to diminish.
- It`s his job is to Steal, Kill, and Destroy (John 10:10)
Secondly, he is not afraid to talk to God. - Job Chapter One - Jesus`Temptation (Matthew Chapter Four)
In the text we find Simon Peter - The Impetuous One. Satan wanted Peter crushed. Jesus` reassurance, "I prayed for you, Blessed art thou SimonBar Jona..." My brother, my sister, Satan wants you crushed today. People wonder "when are things ever going to go my way?", "when will my husband/wife/child/job/car ever going to act right?", "how many more tears do I have to cry?", Well, trouble don`t last always! I know that you are going through, but let me share a little secret with you, just in case you didn`t know…you have to go through in order to get to… Don`t you keep your head down, you are a child of God. You are a masterpiece in the works. Satan is trying to ruin God`s work in your life, because he is a
hater! Yeah, he`s got his eye on you. Just because he can`t stand God loving you so much!
So, knowing that Satan doesn`t care for you…knowing that he wants to see you depressed, oppressed, pressed down, and any other type of "pressed" that you can imagine. Let me tell you then, what you do when Satan has his eye on you.
1. Relax – God is still in charge. Jesus prayed for us (John 17:20-26)
2. Resist – Turn to God, Resist the devil (James 4:7-8)
3. Recite – The Goodness of Jesus. Tell Somebody. Don’t Be Ashamed.
4. Rejoice - Rejoice in the Lord always…again I say rejoice. Give Glory, Honor and Praise to Him!
