Satan works in little things

I have come to realize that sometimes Satan can do more damage in the little areas of our lives than in the big areas. It is easier to realize he is trying to tear us down when we go through a big trial, but sometimes I forget he is also tearing me down when he is in the little things that aren't going right.  For instance, yesterday I had a headache all day and was nauseous some of the time on top of that. I will also admit I was in a bad mood and cranky with my children. They weren't obeying properly and we just in general weren't having a very good day. Well, I did end up apologizing for my attitude and that area got better. This morning the children were not getting along and not listening to me. So, we sat down and read some in the bible and discussed how we are to treat each other and what God tells us to do. I was just thinking though that I sometimes don't realize I'm letting the enemy in my home by my poor attitude and my children's poor attitude. The little things sneak in while the big things hit us in the face, but the little things matter too. Just my random thoughts.

  1. You are absolutely right, you know, I see satan more in the little things than the big things. A lot of trials we go through, the big ones, I think are from God, as a way to bring us back to Him, like he did to the Israelites. Not all of them ofcourse, but a lot of them. But the little things, build and build, and we don't see the need to deal with them so quickly as we do the big stuff, and then we suddenly find our selves in a place where we're under intense pressure, and stress, and end up just losing it. I know it's hard, but when you can recognize that, and ask the Lord for guidance, it makes all the difference. Praying for you my friend!
