If you think it is God Who is doing this to you, look the other
way--it is the other one doing it--Satan! It is indeed possible for even a devout Christian to be "demonically oppressed", that is, seemingly beset by constant misfortune. I am suffering under the same circumstances, my friend. It is really
hard to think positive, when all that positive thought only brings down upon me yet another steaming pile of...bad luck. It's as if the Devil dropped trow, popped a squat right over my head, and...use your imagination for the rest.
A verse from Ephesians, Chapter 6, goes as follows: "Above all, take up the Shield of Faith, that ye may be able to quench all the fiery darts of the Evil One."
What good is a shield going to do, when what I need is the world's strongest FIRE HOSE?!
I could sit here and quote verse after verse from the Good Book, but I feel more like Job, that poor sap who was targeted by the Devil in the Old Testament with every manner of misfortune--most of his slaves killed, his wealth destroyed, and eventually, even his health taken away! Yet, what did he do? He refused to curse God and die, instead preferring to praise Him with the words "The Lord giveth, and now he taketh away. May His name be praised!" Job did question God about this sudden downturn in his life, and God rebuked him with such words as "Whither wert thou when I did lay the foundations of the earth? Whither wert thou when I knitted thee in thy mother's womb?" Job, immediately humbled, sought forgiveness for his "sins", and God forgave him, and paid him back double what Satan had destroyed.
I sure hope that God pays me back double what Satan has done asunder in my life. Of course, that might not be until the Rapture. Then, it will be a moot point--I will be immune to misfortune, and cured of my Asperger syndrome, to boot. I will have a body and mind to last throughout eternity, instead of a body which is clumsy and a mind which is VERY quick to get frustrated, and therefore angry.
All I can say at the end of this post is, "Get thee behind me, Satan! Thou hast no place in my life, since Jesus is now in mine heart!"
I just wish it were a lot easier to keep Him in mind, instead of having Satan "get his way" all the time.
