Soul Snack 150/12 ... The Shadow of Doubt!
The venom of the evil one remains a persistent and menacing drip as satan seeks to re-claim the soul of a Christ-follower. His fangs puncture the present with memories of confessed sin that God has long placed behind His back. Satan washes the soul of the believer with doubt in God's grace and injures the heart with accusations of an unforgiveable blame.
Satan daily marshalls both his willing and unwitting servants in war against God's children's. He cascades a burning acid of hollow lies, resentments, anger and ill-judgements across the Lord's friends. This assault upon the entire person continues with an equal assurance that the prince of the air still roams across the face of this earth.
But to all those who walk through the fire, feel the pangs of doubt and sink in the mire of satan's personal assaults God blesses three life-preserving truths to:
- God summons you by name because you belong to Him and not the evil one,
- His presence with you is your security each day; He is your vanguard and rearguard, and
- His love for you means you are wanted, precious and honored in His sight.
God's grace is permanent but satan's assaults aren't.
Satan can pry the hands of God from you no more than you can save yourself.
But now, this is what the Lord says—
he who created you, Jacob,
he who formed you, Israel:
“Do not fear, for I have redeemed you;
I have summoned you by name; you are mine." (Is 43:1)

Jesus yearned for you in heaven which is why He came for you to earth.
