The way Satan takes advantage of us is by putting thoughts in our mind. He can place thoughts in our minds that have a devastating effect on our families and our businesses.
2 Corinthians 2:11 "But I fear lest by any means that as the serpent beguiled Eve, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicities in Christ."
Not only will Satan put thoughts into our mind, but he will put the same type of thoughts as he did in Eve’s mind. We must study God’s Word so that we do not fall into this trap of deceit.
1 Chronicles 21:1 says "Satan stood up against Israel and provoked David to number Israel."
How did Satan stand up against the entire nation of Israel? He provoked David. He put a thought in David's mind and made David think that thought was his own thought. If Satan can attack an entire nation by putting a thought in one person's mind, he can stand against your family by putting a thought in one family member's mind.
Satan puts thoughts in our minds, and if we act on those thoughts, then Satan has already won. We must lean on Jesus in order to protect our family businesses.
