Satan thinks he is good.  He can find that one thread that is tiny, fragile and pick at it.  He picks and picks until he has it in his ugly grasp.  He then starts to painfully pull that tiny string and slowly attempt to unravel the threads of our lives that have been knit together for the Glory of God's Kingdom.  

He can't stand to see something pure.  He wants NO Glory for God.  He wants to distract us from going down the path that leads us to righteousness.  He can unravel the fragile, delicate plans one thread at a time.  He is not mighty like our God.  He has to stoop to the depths of deception and evil.  

He will not will his battle with me.  He can unravel my tiny threads.  He can attack me.  He can attack my sons.  He can attack my business.  He can attack my friendships.  He can pull at me, one tiny thread at a time.  I feel like things are unraveling quickly.  I can panic.  I can run and hide.  I can give in, I can give up.  He forgets that I have a choice.  I have free will.  

My free will can not allow him to separate me from my God and unravel all of me. I am a creation that God has knit together.  He can not bind me with his chains.  I will lift my voice and cry out to the Heavens.  God will hear my cries and will not leave me in the depths of confusion.  Only He can erase these doubts.  I will lay my burdens down at His mighty feet.  Nothing is too big for MY God.  

So go ahead Satan, unravel my sweater.  I will let God's Glory resound!  I have warriors who will pray with me, their knees will bow.  Together we will bind you, Satan.  You pull my threads, unravel my sleeves.  I may have a vest when you are finished, but I will wear my vest proudly.  I will go forth boldly.  You can attempt to unravel me, but you will not ruin me.  


2 Corinthians 10:3-5 (GOD’S WORD Translation)

3Of course we are human, but we don’t fight like humans. 4The weapons we use in our fight are not made by humans. Rather, they are powerful weapons from God. With them we destroy people’s defenses, that is, their arguments 5and all their intellectual arrogance that oppose the knowledge of God. We take every thought captive so that it is obedient to Christ.
