It's Not Supposed to Be This Way - Session 5 - When the Enemy Comes Against Us
The enemy wants us to have an eroded trust in God and an elevated trust in ourselves. Often it's fear that leads us into temptation regarding our perceived needs (lust of the flesh), misplaced desires (lust of the eyes), and things we think we deserve (pride of life). We fear God won't provide what we need, want, or deserve, so we justify getting these things our own way. Be careful about trying to be *true to yourself*...make sure you're not being true to your most unhealthy self, but to your most surrendered, healed, and healthy self.
