Tips to not be deceived




Hey girls, how are you? Today I want to give some tips for you not to be so easily deceived by the devil and for you to learn how see his traps before it is too late.

Last week I talked about the Crushes of life, that handsome boy of every girls dreams. But a lot of times that crush doesn't move forward and that's good. But today I would like to warn you about those famous crushes that began to pay attention to you. Oops!! All of a sudden that cute boy gave you a peek. He gave you a smile. Now he even sits close to you and trying to start a conversation. Out of nowhere he started to be interested in you. Wow! what's going on? The most handsome kid in school is interested in me? What is that? I imagine the little hearts pounding, sweaty hands, it is hard to believe!! He was only interested in the most beautiful girls in school and now he is looking at me? Wow, what a privilege, now I will be the most popular and cool girl of the school.

(Pow!! I pupped the balloon) I am sorry girls, I have to pup this balloon. Let us think a little bit. You decided to give yourself more to God. You decided to seek the Holy Spirit, decided to be part of the Godllywood group, you are serving more in the Church, participating of the youth group and all of a sudden the boy (or boys) start to be more interested in you. Suddenly everyone want to be your friend, you become popular. Suddenly you get a lot of invitations to go to parties and all. How come? Doesn't it seem weird all of this happening so, so fast?
That's how it is friends, the devil knowing that you giving your life to God means a loss to hell, he knows that  the more you do for God and get closer to Him, the less chance he'll have against you. The devil knowing your potential in the Work of God, he will soon prepare the easiest traps for young people to fall: boyfriends, friends and popularity at school.

Can you  see his strategy? I will teach you something I learned and has helped me a lot, I call it 10 seconds rule. When something happens to me, I just stop and think for 10 seconds on what happened and ask myself, "What was that? What happened here? Where this idea is coming from? Is it of God or the devil? "And I think of all the answers. When we do this we are giving the opportunity for God to speak to us and show us the truth. We are demonstrating that we want to do the right thing instead of being guided by the deceitful volatile heart. We're being humble to ask God for help not to displease Him.

For instance, when this cute boy begins to pay attention to you,  right away you have to stop and think for 10 seconds (if you need, it can even be a minute lol) and ask yourself: "Before no one would even look at me, why now? Before I was bullied and now everyone wants to be my friend? Now that I gave my life to Jesus more than ever, I  have been receiving a lot of invitations to go to parties, club, etc. Why? "When you stop to think about those little questions, then God opens your eyes and you can clearly see the devil's traps, trying to deceive you. This little secret of 10 seconds applies to all the areas of our lives, okay? Always question when things try to divert you from God's ways. Don't  be silly or an easy prey to the devil, okay? Let us be wise girls. Keep your focus on the things of God and trust that God has great and wonderful things prepared for you.

Stop, think and listen to the voice of God, this is the path to success.

A big kiss to all and until next week.

"Stop, think and listen to the voice of God, this is the path to success." and the "10 second rule or a minute"..lol

What I can say that thank you, I will most definitely use the 10 seconds. This post helped me a lot it is what some of it i am currently going through. I have though at some point told myself "what a minute, why now all of a sudden?" It is for me now to keep on with it in all areas , not to think and just let it pass.
It is true what you say also that the devil knows the potential you have for God, so it to me to be alert and insist in the things of God, for me to give myself even much more than before and closer.

Thank you Mrs Tania and Mrs Juliana, your blogposts help us a whole lot.

Smiles yes Mrs Tania you are so correct, it happens i will say if you being carried away with all of this, you will start withdrawing from the work of God you participated in at church. God will speak when He does listen go to meer a Pr wife or a female Assistants, if you are scared run to the Altar seek for God's help. Thats it
