And remember, doubts are not of the Holy Spirit. Doubts are not of God, doubts come from the devil, the enemy of your soul. Defeat and depression are never of God. Oppression is never of God.

So, immediately after you have yielded to temptation, Satan comes and lays on you his 'guilt trip' and says, ''Now you are ruined. You are absolutely ruined. Your testimony is of no effect.

Victory is God's language and we are MORE THAN CONQUERORS through Christ who loves us! So, immediately after you have yielded to temptation, Satan comes and lays on you his 'guilt trip' and says, ''Now you are ruined. You are absolutely ruined. Your testimony is of no effect. What will your family think? What will the folk in the church think? " And you experience the desolation of defeat. You hang your head, your feet drag and you are the most miserable person in the world. You may be a missionary having done a tremendous job for God on the mission field.

But you are still open to attacks of Satan. Sometimes I think the folk to whom much has been entrusted are those that the enemy of our soul besieges most tirelessly. Walk carefully. Walk softly. Guard well that which you have. If you are Spirit-filled, if God has bestowed on you heavenly gifts, if you have had great spiritual experiences, guard these things carefully for you are the very person that the enemy will attack. The more deeply spiritual you are, the greater will be the attacks of Satan upon you because you have greater influence than that one who is a weak Christian.
