Message Notes

Gaslighting: Psychological manipulation of a person usually over an extended period of time that causes the victim to question the validity of their own thoughts, perception of reality, or memories and typically leads to confusion, loss of confidence and self-esteem, uncertainty of one's emotional or mental stability, and a dependency on the perpetrator.

And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.
Matthew 6:13
Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.
1 Peter 4:8
Another reason I wrote you was… so that Satan might not outwit us. For we are not unaware of his schemes.
2 Corinthians 2:9-11

Bottom Line

Greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world.

"There is no neutral ground in the universe. Every square inch, every split second is claimed by God, and counterclaimed by Satan."
– CS Lewis

"There are two equal and opposite errors in which our race can fall about the devils. One is to disbelieve in their existence. The other is to believe, and to feel an excessive and unhealthy interest in them. They themselves are equally pleased by both errors. "
– CS Lewis

Ditch One: Deny Satan’s Existence

Ditch Two: Fixate on Satan

We are to pray for deliverance and strive for faithfulness.

Action Steps

Identify a trial or test you’re facing right now in life. This week pray for deliverance and ask God to empower you to be faithful. Notice how God encourages you to head in the right direction and how God discourages you from heading in the wrong direction. Conversely, notice how Satan encourages to you head in the wrong direction and discourages you from heading in the right direction.
