That's why they can doubt their Salvation, and it makes others doubt as well that they ever got savedor possibly could be saved and are on their way to heaven.The Enemy would like to have you take on a defeatist attitude, and to get you to give up. "Give up!It's no use! Why keep on fighting? You don't stand a chance anyway!" And sometimes the onlyanswer that comes to your mind, when he asks you "Why keep on fighting?," is "Because I chooseto." You choose not to give up, not to surrender to him, that's your choice and your determination,and that's what's going to give you the victory, ultimately.Whenever a situation looks bad and the Enemy tries to get you to moan about it, you've got torealize that that's a lie.When a situation seems bad, I want you to see My love in it, and to remember that this is alsohappening for some good purpose.The most important thing is that you trust Me and don't believe the Enemy when he tries to tell you:"You
He made a mistake!" or, "
He has proven that He doesn't love you!" That's oneof the greatest dangers of growing up: you become more skeptical, which means, you won't believethings as easily anymore, but you're going to want to find out whether the things you were beingtold are really so. When children become teens, the Devil really attacks them with a lot of doubts,because they want to discover their own view of things, and don't just want to see things throughthe glasses they were given by their parents. They want to make their own picture.While it's inevitable to grow up, and it's My will for you to become more mature, you should alwayskeep your childlike faith in Me. The Devil will try to put a lot of thoughts into your head, which
"grown up", but in the end can be quite silly, and really only have the purpose to destroy faith andtrust in Me.How do you become an instrument of My peace?"Where there is doubt, there let me bring faith." You cannot have any doubts yourself, but must beso full of positiveness, so determined not to give any place to the Devil and his evil thoughts of darkness, of nothingness, that anything and everything that represents his gloom will only serve asa vacuum that's immediately filled up and overwhelmed by My graciousness, My capacity to fill, Myall-engulfing and overflowing light, joy and love.The carnal man seeks to build up his pride and seeks the opposite of My will for you, the sinfulnature in you that always seeks to contradict Me, to doubt Me, to strive against Me, to run away fromMe. Your natural reasoning sometimes makes you doubt, because you don't
different from any oldvillain... The Enemy tries to "remind" you that you're no one special at all, just another wickedhuman, like all the rest of them.But heaven and all its blessings are not earned on a merit basis. You either have the right and youare being granted access to its riches or not, no matter what the Enemy may do or say. In fact, theonly chance he ever had is that you fall for his bluffs and believe any of this stuff. You are one whohas full access to the treasure houses of the Father; an heir with all the full privileges and constantaccess to anything you might need. What Satan says about it or tries to make you believe about it isirrelevant.It's all about overcoming and resisting those temptations of the Enemy, overcoming all seemingimpossibilities, difficulties and potential excuses to quit, and rise above them all on the wings of faith in Me, refusing to doubt that what I have promised I am well able to keep.Don't let doubts or hesitation, lethargy or lack of enthusiasm rob & kill the great things I could dothrough your faith!The true visionaries and prophets refuse to doubt that what I have promised is true, and I will honor their faith.The more of a conscious effort you make to
focused on Me, the clearer My messages to you willbecome, the more strength and energy they'll give you, the more faith you'll develop, and the moreyour doubts will disappear.My Word is like the magical sword Excalibur of the tales of old, that was stuck inside a rock, andonly the true king was able to pull it out.
