(Matthew 16: 23)
The closer you are to the promises of God, the more you will find yourself saying get behind me, Satan! He will send traps your way, temptations, people, compromise, and play games with your emotions all to get you to miss out on what God has planned for your life.
Jesus saw Satan working through Peter, but often times Satan speaks direct to us through our thoughts. Those thoughts that tries to get you to compromise with what you already know the will of God to be are straight from the enemies camp, and you need to tell Satan to get behind you!
When people show up in your life trying to get you live a life you know God disagrees with, you need to recognize that Satan has placed that person there for a reason, and you need to say nope! I'm not falling for it! Get behind me Satan!
When you hear a bad report that doesn't line up with the promise of God, you might hear a voice that says see, I told you your faith was pointless! You need to recognize that's the voice of the enemy trying to get you to doubt. You need to tell that voice get behind me Satan! It's impossible for God to lie! If He said it's gonna happen, then it will happen, period!
When those old ways and habits starts coming back to mind, you need to tell those thoughts to get behind me Satan! I'm not going backwards! I'm going forward!
Through Peter, Satan was trying to get Jesus to ignore the will of the Father, but Jesus knew that obeying the will of the Father is the only way to the promise and we need to remember that also.
The enemy will not bring thoughts that feel bad but ones that feel good. Remind yourself to stay focus on the greater purpose, which is the will of the Father!
Don't ever ignore thoughts you know are from the enemy - especially lustful thoughts and doubtful thoughts! You have to tell Satan to get behind you before he overwhelms your desires.
