Just Can’t Win?

[ad#ad-1] Ever wonder why things just keep going wrong and that the more you struggle to succeed something keeps knocking you back on your assets?

I mean you climb one step up the ladder and you loose your footing and fall back down 3 steps, never really ever gaining ground.

A lot of times people use the excuse that they just have bad luck or that they are cursed, perhaps even fate biting them in the butt for something they did in their past. “Didn’t I give enough tithes?”

I beg to differ. I have a different way of looking at what you are going through and then you will understand a little better the grand design.

Lets say you are so close to getting that job you have been waiting for, you have had all the interviews and your references have all came through for you (special thanks to Uncle Mike in the police department) and they ask you to come in one day to get some formalities out of the way.

On the way there you get a flat tire, it is raining, cell went dead and you are 3 miles to the nearest phone. OMG!

Yeah you can picture that rant and rave.

Why would God do that? Doesn’t he want you to succeed at anything, where is your reward for all the work and effort?

Well… While God was watching and being proud of you’re ever step the devil was watching too and doing some sweating. Your success would trigger hope and justice not to mention happiness, finally a little more money which means a little less stress, family would be in a better situations and God forbid if you were a religious person! That might tell others to do the same and get rewarded.

Nope… evil cant let you win. And Oh… How HE will fight the closer you get to greatness. Teeth and Nail screaming “NOOOO!” when you got that diploma, and try as he may stirring up all kinds of difficulties right before your wedding. Nope things always get worse the closer you are to the finish line.

But have faith; as much as the devil struggles to win, if you keep your eyes on the prize and do not falter, the devil gives up when he has no glimpse of winning.

Feeling the Devils Power

Too many times I am asked if people are cursed or if the devil has it out for them? My answer is simple and straight forward.

The devil only has access to what he has claim to. Does the devil have claim on you?

Satan is a reality we face everyday, his influence on others allows him to work through them to make your life more difficult.

Haven’t you ever met a person that you just knew was evil? You may not be able to see into the devils face or stand toe to toe with lesser demons but you definitely have dealt with his minions on earth.

Most religions see the devil as the opposite of good, Gods nemesis. And although the concept is correct, most see the devil as equal to God when it is God that controls all and it is only Him allowing things to happen to teach lessons that give Satan any authority at all.

We go back to my theory that everything happens for a reason and see that it is the trials and temptations in life that makes us strong.

It creates a question that even Satan has a divine purpose. Whether Islamic Iblis, Christianities Satan or Hindu’s assures that attitude towards him is a negative one.

All God loving and fearing individuals know well to keep their distance. It is a fact that some do not begrudge the devil and some even practice Satan worship “Satanism”.

It is never my intention to tell people what God to pray to but in the same respects I feel it is my duty to remind everyone that all is possible through the power of “God” and for what ever reason anyone decides to worship the devil it will one day prove to be fruitless.

The American native Indian had no concept on one God but they did see one as the trickster and deservedly so. The occult will never give the desired results you expect.

Black magic and some forms of witchcraft promises power and success but if the price is weighed against what you really do achieve it is easy to see the path is a dead end and you do not come out ahead.

Just remember we are taught in most religions including Wicca to “respect” evil factions but not to fear and never to worship.
