Laughing at the Devil

by | Oct 1, 2022 | Deliverance, Temptation

“You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.”

(Psalm 16:11 ESV)

“Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds,”

(James 1:2 ESV)

This has been a week of attacks from the evil one. He really doesn’t like me but the feeling is mutual. I don’t like him either.

Tuesday the devil tried to keep me from going to church. But the jokes on him. I put out a prayer request and within an hour I was feeling better and went to church. On my way to church, I was listening to JoyFM. I started singing in tongues but then it changed. I was doing business with the devil. I ended up laughing at him. It felt so good. That night, I couldn’t sleep. So of course I was tired Wednesday. He tried to attack again. He tried to distract me with text messages while I was doing my Bible reading.  Sorry to anyone I didn’t answer right away. I did glance at them to make sure they could wait a few minutes. But that’s what the devil does, he tries to steal our joy anyway he can.

But you can’t let him. You need to stay strong and keep telling him he is defeated. Tell him he has no right in your life and he has to go. Then you need to stay strong and keep your walls up to keep him out.

Jesus is a place you can run to for protection. When my mind is wandering while doing something for God, I ask Jesus to take care of it. Soon my mind is focused on what I was supposed to be doing. The devil tries so hard to steal my joy. And it used to be easy for him. But not so much anymore. He has a hard time stealing my joy now.

The best weapons in my arsenal is the blood of Jesus and laughter. If you arm yourself with those weapons, and use them often, the devil might just think twice about messing with you.

Have a blessed day everyone.
