While we live in a world where it seems that anything goes, I’ve found that the majority of people believe God is mad at them. Burdened with guilt and shame, and reflecting upon life’s difficulties, too many believe what they’re going through is from the hands of a divine entity trying to get them back.Maybe you’ve said something like this:“I’m sick because I sinned.”“I’m in financial struggle because I did something wrong.”“This disaster happened because God is punishing us.”These are lies! Sickness, poverty and disaster aren’t the works of God. No, they are the works of the devil, which Jesus came to destroy (see 1 John 3:8). As I explore in my book, Silence Satan: Shutting Down the Enemy’s Attacks, Threats, Lies, and Accusations, it’s a slick deception of Satan to ascribe his works to God, through which he accomplishes at least three goals. First, Satan removes himself from the limelight and places the focus on God as the author of all evil. Secondly, he seeks to keep you in misery, believing that it’s God’s will for you to suffer in such ways.
