Learning to lean on God when Satan Calls
Everyone in the world needs helping hands when in times of troubles and looks for a solution through worldly manner. However when it comes to Christian believers we need to look into the face of Jesus who is the provider and deliverer in times troubles. Christians should learn to lean with God in their every aspect of their Life. Learning to lean to God in all your circumstances will show you how God loves you, cares you, comforts you and strengthens you in times of troubles. What is special there in learning to lean in God when Satan calls? In John 10:10 Jesus clearly says about Satan “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life and have it to the full.” The thief here indicates Satan, and he comes to steal you from getting close to God and looks to destroy your life. But leaning to God will safeguard you from all the dangers and temptations which Satan looks to turn your life from Jesus.
Even Jesus had a spiritual warfare from Satan in the wilderness in Matthew 4:1-11. Since Jesus was leaning to his father and was strong in the word of God he easily overcame the temptation Satan has set before him. When Satan brings in problems or tempts to do ungodly thing, just seek the God face and ask to give strength in those times. Leaning over God indicates that you are trusting Jesus blindly. For example, when a little girl holds the hand of his father she never worries about anything and whatever she ask she knows his father will give her. The same goes with the Heavenly father and son relationship when we leaning and trust him 100% we will totally take care of our life. The more we depend on God the more dependable we find He is.
"No one will be able to defeat you all your life. Just as I was with Moses, so I will be with you. I will not leave you or forget you.” (Joshua 1:5 NCV)
You need to learn to lean on the Lord. It doesn’t mean just believe in him — it means depend totally, completely, and exclusively on God. When you believe that you can’t do something on your power, that’s OK. Learn to Lean on God, and he will give you his power to do what he’s called you to do. You lose your fear when God is near, and he’s promised to always be with you.
Proverbs 3:5-7 says, "Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight” (NIV). You can trust God with your future. Learn to lean on him. Amen.
