    Perhaps this has been discussed before, but if not, I'd like to see how everyone feels about this.

    Do you feel that Satan (or any of his agents) have anything to do with our day to day lives, i.e. temptation, stumblingblocks, etc.

    Or is it all us?

    God Bless,

    Yes, Satan and his minions have an influence on each and every one of us. I daily renounce Satan and renew my baptismal promises, invoking the guardianship of my guardian angel.

    Yes, satan absolutely bothers us any time we give him half a chanch. Sometimes it's our old sin nature, but most of the time It's ole slewfoot.

    If someone says the devil never bothers them, you can bet they is walking hand in hand with him and just don't know it.

    Working for HIM,

    Tam

    I agree with Carson Weber and the Tamborine Lady.

    In life we are tempted and tested in various ways. When we overcome through our reliance on the Lord, we find out that with His help we have been purified by our testing period. The dross is poured away and we stand forth, in a greater refinement of gold than at the previous time. When we fail we are taught by God that none of us have reason to be proud, because we are but dust, and yet indwelled by the Spirit of God.

    Sometimes other people, close to us, force our hand into going through certain trying events not to our liking. Nevertheless, when we look back at the testing and trying time, we will see that God has taken us deeper into the faith than before the test. It does not feel like it at the time, but in our difficult times He is turning us into pure gold, being the children of the King. Who would think this was part of Divine revelation? And yet James says, 'Count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations, knowing this that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting {lacking} nothing.' :cool:
