You Are Loved ~ Week 3

During week 3 of the “You Are Loved” study with Good Morning Girls we discussed The Rival – Satan wanting to steal our joy and try to pull us away from knowing just how much God loves us! We have to intentionally read and meditate on God’s Word to overcome Satan. He tries many things to bring us down, he’s sneaky, deceitful and conniving. Make sure to put on the full armor of God daily to stand firm against Satan’s schemes… no this is not always easy, but it’s necessary. And understand that no matter what, if you’re God’s child, God loves you – don’t allow Satan to steal that truth away from you.

The truth is, you will never have to perform for God, because His love for you is endless, infinite, constant and abundant once you put your faith in Him.
~ Sally, You Are Loved, Chapter 3

Did you get that, really get it? Read that part again, God’s love is endless, infinite, constant… !

Replace any negative thoughts with truth from Scripture to overcome the enemy. That’s what satan is, our enemy out to get us to live in the flesh and not of the Spirit.

All you have to do is reject his lies and live into the truth and strong foundations of love that God has communicated to you in scripture! There will always be a spiritual battle going on in your heart, because Satan come to steal your faith and confidence.
~ Sally, You Are Loved, Chapter 3

I’ve gone through several times of depression and hard times that the enemy has had me defeated. I’m so thankful for God’s patience and loving hand to guide me back to Him and pull out of the pit! Yes, I’m unworthy of His love… but God loves me anyway! I constantly need to remind myself of who He says I am: His child, friend, beloved, accepted, secure, significant… the list goes on and on – I carry this list in my Bible and refer to it often!


 This week we journeyed through many Scriptures to help us and blog posts from GMG:

Blog Post: You Are Loved – Week 3: The Rival… with video

1 Peter 5:8
O/A: Be self-controlled and alert (on guard) to all that is around as the devil prowls around like a lion looking to devour someone.
We’re to resist the devil and know that we are not alone as other believers go through the same things.

P: Father God,
Thank You for Your Word, direction and peace that helps me through each day. I pray to be alert, having the self-control, clear mind, and strength to resist the devil and his schemes against me. I lift up other believers to carry themselves as You desire to resist the devil as well.

Blog post: A Personal Message from the You Are Loved Contributors… with video!!

Revelation 12:10-12
SOAP v10
O: Salvation, strength, and the kingdom of our God with the power of Christ have come for satan who accused our brethren to cast him down. They overcame satan by the blood of the Lamb, by their testimony, and they didn’t love their lives to death. Rejoice… woe to earth and sea. Satan does not have much time.

A: Rejoice satan has been cast down. Be on guard, as he still comes around with great wrath because he knows he doesn’t have much time here on earth.

Blog Post: No Condemnation…

Our sin nature is not what we live by any longer as children of God. Jesus died for us, taking on condemnation … therefore we now live by our spiritual nature with the Holy Spirit’s guidance to meet God’s standards.

A: We cannot rely on our own flesh to guide us, we must lean on the Lord to resist the devil.

1 Peter 2:9
We are God’s chosen people to tell about God’s excellent qualities because He called us out of darkness into His marvelous light!

A: YouVersion devo: we belong to God and should find our identity in Him.

And closing up this weeks blog post: The Great Deceiver

Lamentations 3:22, 23
God’s compassion is never limited, not wiping out the human race … He had mercy upon us. His mercy is new every morning and His faithfulness is great.

A: Do not doubt God’s great love for you.

Most importantly, this one things jumped out to me…
Do you understand that loving yourself is a part of your spiritual worship?
~ Sally, You Are Loved, Chapter 3
What can you do today, everyday… to overcome the enemy?
