How He Loves

God loves us to death. To show that He sent his son to the very earth He created to die because of the love that He had (and still has) for us. Satan hates to death. By showing that he tears us down by killing, stealing and destroying our hearts and our lives. He gives us depression, anger and pain. Throwing things our way so that we may lay down the rest of our lives.

Ephesians 6:12-13 
For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

Satan throws things our way. Do we choose to lay of the ground until the savior comes or fight and having done all, to stand? Will you fight? It's your choice, not your parents or your pastor. It's your life. Really it's God's life because he created you but we have the free choice. The Holy Spirit is our guide but he can't make the choices for us. He can only encourage us. What do you choose?

Jesus died on the cross, conquering death, and taking the keys from Satan. Because of that we have the Holy Spirit. Because we have the our Guide, we have the power to resist and rebuke the devil. We also have power of sin, but only if we take thoughts captive, resist the devil (2 Corinthians 10:5-6) and look to God for His instructions.

Thanks for reading. I hope this helps for those who read. God loves you!
