WHERE'S YOUR FOCUS?

Matthew 27:4 "Saying, I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood. And they said, What is that to us see thou to that."
MATTHEW 27:4 These Jews, who had courted Judas' favor to obtain his cooperation in arresting Jesus, cared nothing for Judas. They had simply used him. The devil's crowd may flatter as long as they can use you, but you can be assured that when there is no longer anything in it for them, they will forsake you just as the chief priests did Judas. The serpent didn't come to Eve in the garden threatening to bite her if she didn't eat of the forbidden fruit. Instead, he came with deception, presenting himself as being concerned for her welfare. atan's greatest weapon is deceit. Just as a football player, a bo!er, or military man's success depends partly on how well he knows his opponent"s#, so believers must not be ignorant of atan's devices. Jesus stripped atan of all his authority "$t. %&'(&#. The power that atan uses against us now, is deception. Those who ascribe other powers to him have already fallen prey to one of his lies. The devil deceives us and uses our own power and authority against us. The thing that makes deception so deadly is that those who are deceived don't know it. )nce they reali*e they are deceived, they aren't deceived any more. The best defense against the devil is to be so +od,centered that you give no place to atan. -eople who are very sensitive to the devil's presence usually are so at the e!pense of being sensitive to the .ord's presence. /avid said, 0If I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there0 "-s. (12'&#. 3nytime atan's oppression is present, +od's presence is there too "4eb. (1'5#. It's just a matter of where our focus is. 6ocusing on the devil is a trick of the devil. 7hoose to focus on +od.
