Obliterate the Enemy's Lies About Your Past With This Spirit-Led Tactic

God is the Chief of Change. He is always doing a new thing—always working in our lives. However, His promises for us don't just automatically happen. All things are possible with God, but not all things will positively happen.

There are some things that can hinder us from moving forward in life. One is an old mindset. Mark 2:22 (NIV) says, "No one pours new wine into old wineskins. Otherwise, the wine will burst the skins, and both the wine and the wineskins will be ruined. No, they pour the new wine into new wineskins."

In other words, your mind needs to be renewed. You need a fresh new outlook based on God's Word and His promises. Knowing God's will for your life will help you in your determination to keep moving.

Opportunity and Opposition

When you decide to move forward, be prepared because you will be opposed. The apostle Paul said in 1 Corinthians 16:9 that "a great door for effective work has opened to me, and there are many who oppose me." I like to call them "giants." Whatever you call it, the enemy will not make it easy for you to do God's will. It will be up to you to stay determined and keep pressing on.

One of the tactics of the enemy is to lie to you. For example, he may tell you, "It's too late. " You may be thinking of going back to school after many years. Or maybe you need to make up for some past mistakes. It's not too late. You might have had a big dream at one time that you never fulfilled. read more
