Separation From God

The Advisory known as satan is always looking to bring you away from God into the worldly, and

once you get in the will of God and in obedience, he will throw his fiery darts your way. So the

first thing we need is discernment which we get from His Holy Spirit. The moment we accept

Christ into our hearts we receive His Holy Spirit which stays with us always. This was Jesus’

promise that he would never leave us, and His way of communicating to us while He is in Heaven.

 

The good news is that with the Holy Spirit we have an escape of the temptations that come

our way. There is free will that God gives us, and from there we have a choice to either give

in to temptation, or take the escape route to please God, and follow Him. I'm not going to tell

you that it's always an easy task, but I can tell you that the more you get to know Jesus, and

His will for your life, the more you grow in your relationship, and learn of His character, the less

you will want to get out of step with Him.

 

First we need to access what is worldly, and what is of God. It states in (1 John 4-5) They are

from the world and therefore speak from the viewpoint of the world, and the world listens to them.

Does this have a familiar ring to it? Logical thinking, tangiblness, do what you feel is right, all

these are worldly points of view, and also the way satan loves to dangle the carrot in front of you.

These things are anything that satisfies the carnal flesh, but remember these are only temporary,

and that doing God's will and service to Him, brings everlasting Joy, and Gifts that are stored

for us in eternity.

 

Stand firm therefore, HAVING GIRDED YOUR LIONS WITH TRUTH, and HAVING PUT ON THE

BREASTPLATE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, and having shod YOUR FEET WITH THE

PREPARATION OF THE GOSPEL OF PEACE; In addition to all, taking up the shield of faith

with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. And take THE

HELMET OF SALVATION, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.  Ephesians

6:13-17

 

Once we realize that it's not us but The Holy Spirit who helps us, we realize we have the greater

strength over anything this world can do or offer.
