Don't Listen to the Devil When You're Waiting on God

A job, a true love, a baby, a cure. ... Most of us are waiting on something from God. And Satan loves to torment us and tell us lies during those seasons of waiting. Here are some of the lies Satan will tell you about waiting and how to combat them:

Lie No. 1: God is making me wait because He is punishing me.

Satan means "Accuser." One of Satan's favorite roles is as prosecuting attorney, putting us on trial before God, hurling our own sins and weaknesses in our faces. But let me tell you something, and please listen and try to hear — really hear — and believe: When life gets hard, it doesn't mean God is punishing you.
