Choose love

The Freeman - - LIFESTYLE - Kar­ren Renz Seña

I am God’s sol­dier. I’m His champion. I am His fire. I am firm in my iden­tity in Christ. I know what I am called to do – to use the power of words to evan­ge­lize the world. Be­cause of this, I’m con­stantly un­der at­tack.

The devil knows my weak­nesses and he is vi­cious in us­ing them against me. Of­ten, when I am all fired up for God, the devil would use cheap but ef­fec­tive tac­tics to dis­tract me from my mis­sion. (Hello, Face­book.) He would use my emo­tions against me and he would plant seeds of sloth in my heart. But what I hate the most is when he would cre­ate strife within my fam­ily.

When the devil at­tacks my loved ones, my first re­ac­tion is to hate him. I would get the in­stinc­tive de­sire to ad­dress him di­rectly and tell him that he can’t win against me. But when­ever this hap­pens, I would al­ways turn back to God and pray, be­cause I know that lash­ing out – even against the devil him­self — would be my down­fall.

Where there is hate, where there is strife, where there is war, choose love. Let us not let the devil win.
