So you decided to live for God. But you are still a weak human. Satan has lost you and wants you back. He will try hard to make that happen. Often, the new Christian is the one he attacks the hardest.
Still, Satan never lets up and periodically causes bad things to happen to you so you’ll blame God, just as he tried to do with Job. He will tempt you with more things than before you became a Christian in his attempts to get you back.
God knows what is happening. He stands with you. He is so proud of you when you stand up to Satan and say, “Never! I will not blame or forsake my Lord.” He sees how your spiritual muscles are growing.
But, if you sometimes stumble and fall, you are not beyond hope. Never, never believe you are beyond hope! That is a lie! God never leaves you. He continues to lean low, holding out his hands and saying, “Take them. I will lift you back up. You will be safe again.”
