Get Behind Us!

Satan's messed with us a little bit this year. And I ain't gonna lie - some of it almost derailed us. ALMOST. He did what he does best and whispered some lies in our ears and made us question ourselves or act/react in ways we didn't want to.

But we serve a God so infinitely bigger than this pathetic little earthly satan. So in this household - this family is committed to yelling it loud and clear when we feel it:

God has been so faithful to let us know when the attacks are happening so that we can lean into Him.

Love the full verse of that:
"Get behind me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to me; you do not have in mind the things of God, but the things of men." [Mark 8:33]
And here's the kicker - we already know the outcome of his little attempts to win us all over. That's what bugs me so much sometimes - satan wins an occasional little battle - but I know the outcome. And yet he still wins the battle every now and then.

But one day we'll be in Heaven next to our one TRUE REAL father and the idea of satan won't even be in existence.

You'd think satan would realize that I'm on to him. I mean - I spent 31 years listening to him more than anything else - but now... now the tides have turned. Now I am a servant of God. And this is what us servants have going for us:
"No weapon formed against you shall prosper, And every tongue which rises against you in judgment You shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, And their righteousness is from Me, Says the Lord." [Isaiah 54:17]
I'm gonna rest in that when he tries to come at us.

Oh - and we had to warn Meron's school teacher that if Meron yelled out in class "Get behind me Satan!" it was because she felt him at work trying to get her to talk, disobey, be disrespectful or not listen.

And here's why we love her school - her teacher - one of our favorites and one of the people in Meron's life pouring REAL BIBLICAL TRUTH into her said: "Amen. She can yell that all she wants!"

How's the view back there?
