Are you elated to put 2016 behind you convinced 2017 has to be better simply because things can’t get much worse? That was 2011 for me, so when this post showed up as a memory in my Facebook feed this morning, I relived not just the disappointments of 2011, but the faithfulness of God. Seeing the reality of His word lived out in the pages of my testimony encouraged me today as He reminded me of the irrevokable truths He taught me that year.

It’s time to confront the devil OUT LOUD, tell him where to go, and then stick our fingers in our ears, because he’s not going to go quietly. The devil’s M.O. is to get us to go against God and therefore keep us separated from Him or cause us to be useless to His purposes, and when we resist, he throws an eternal tantrum, manipulating until he wears us down or we shut him up. Satan’s been trying to wear me down, and it’s time I shut him up.Read More
