Luke 22:31-34, "...that he might sift you like wheat, but...that your faith may not fail..." satan goes for what we think are our strengths, where we feel invincible or at least well protected. If he can "shake" our faith (like sifting wheat) he will succeed in demoralizing us and creating disappointment within ourselves. Failure is only when our "Prideful" commitment followed by our "Prideful" expectations are not realized. A person with destroyed pride, feels useless and (without JESUS) begins living a defeated existence instead of a "Vibrant" life where each minute is a HOLY SPIRIT lead "Adventure". Where we have pride, we will always have failure. When we depend on the HOLY SPIRIT to guide us, we come back STRONGER than before because we lose some of our PRIDE and GAIN more of JESUS! When we realize we are never "completely destroyed" we will begin to live the VIBRANT ADVENTURE with the HOLY SPIRIT and we know, THIS CAN BE OUR BEST DAY EVER!
Psalm 139: 23-24
GOD IS GOD!
