DAY 151 - Are You Aware of Satan's Schemes?

Today’s Reading: 2 Corinthians 2

Please read 2 Corinthians 2: 1 – 17 and listen to what the Lord Jesus Christ would like to tell you before reading my Spiritual Journal below. If you would like to learn a simple and good way of Daily Devotion method please read my “Count Down 5” from this blog. You may click this link directly for the method: Subject Shifting Devotion.pdf . (You may begin with a song to praise the Lord and complete you devotion by singing another praise song.)

Please click the links below to 2 Corinthians 2:


If you forgive anyone, I also forgive him. And what I have forgiven-if there was anything to forgive- I have forgiven in the sight of Christ for your sake, in order that Satan might not outwit us. For we are not unaware of his schemes. 2 Corinthians 2:10-11

Are you really aware of Satan’s schemes? Paul says that Satan’s schemes is to outwit us so that we cannot forgive.

Just like yesterday, Jesus asked me to count how many “griefs” there were in today's passage. I counted nine. Can you recall what happened the last time that you grieved ? The most unbearable grief is when you cannot forgive someone. And Satan’s schemes is to try his best so that we will have some people that we cannot forgive. When we have someone that we cannot forgive, Satan wins!

If you can forgive, then you will be forgiven as well by God and His people. What can be better than changing from unforgivenness to acceptance! Only if you allow Jesus to lead you, then you will be just like the triumphal procession in Rome 2,000 years ago. You will be able to spread everywhere the fragrance of Jesus! How wonderful and glorious we can be if we can forgive!

Dear Lord Jesus,

Thank you for helping me to forgive those that I can never forgive in my own human strength. Lead me to defeat Satan's schemes so that I can forgive. I want to be in the triumphal procession, following your lead and not being captured as a POW of Satan. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
