3 threatening tactics Satan uses to keep us away from God

Satan would like nothing more than for people to stop worshipping the good Lord. We cannot be fooled; the devil is smart and employs new tricks that can often go unnoticed. Tim Challies from shared some of the tactics Satan uses to keep us from doing what God wishes us for us to do. Here are just three of the ways Satan tries to tempt us to his side – unknowingly.

Resist the Devil. Stand with God.1. Satan makes the world more appealing than Him.
Most people tend to move away from God after they see the world as more attractive on the other side. Satan tempts with the worldly riches for their souls. We can see the beauty and majesty of the world, as it was created by God, who loves us the most, but the earthly riches can never be more beautiful and majestic than the Lord Himself and His love.

2. Satan flags that to worship is a burden.

The devil will do anything to defeat God and one of his tactics is to scare us with the difficulties that come with worshipping God well. Satan will continue to tell that doing all things in His glory and sacrificing our earthly lives for moments with Him are all worthless. He will even make us see and feel that those devoted suffer too much.

3. Satan will keep us from doing more for God.

Satan will try to make us stop worshipping God more than we are now; flattering us with belief that we have done enough for Him. But we haven’t and we shall not rest on glorifying the Lord. Be inspired to do more.

Challies suggests that we keep track of our attitude and behavior towards the faithful worship to keep our path to God unstoppable.

    We never stop adoring, glorifying,honoring, praising, and worshiping God! We are for God all the time! Only God can keep us away from the attacks of the demons! We have to fight back! With the help of Saint Michael the Archangel, he always defends us! Keep praying the prayer of Saint Michael !

    The Rosary not only destroys his plots against you but frees souls from pergatory. Pray the Rosary, and together we can free those in pergatory sooner by God’s Love. What would Jesus not do for his mother?

    Also beware of Ayn Rand Satanism. ….her evil books and teachings….they are center cor ered to the Satanist belief system. …Anton LaVey (church of Satan) had advocated her teachings and many devil worshippers are proud to embrace her teachings…..she repackaged Satanic teachings in secular writings. DO NOT BE FOOLED. Lucifer came as an angel of light.
