When Satan Attacks

From the moment you find out you are pregnant, it is crucial to be on your guard. Why? Because Satan likes to attack pregnant women. I have had many conversations about this recently as well as battling it myself. The surge of hormones, the changes in your body, the complete lack of control. All of it can be so overwhelming and Satan loves to use these things to whisper lies to us.

"If God was good you wouldn't be sick." 
"Your husband thinks your unattractive."
"It's OK to lose it since you don't feel well."
"No one is here to help you. You are all alone."
"You were too sick to clean the house today? You're worthless!"

He likes to use our insecurities to feel isolated, ugly, and that sin is OK. But none of these things are true! Because of Christ, we are never alone. Pregnancy is beautiful! And sin is never OK. 

We must fight these lies with the Truth of God's word. To know the Truth, we must be in the Word regularly. We must share our insecurities with our husbands, family, friends, anyone we trust to speak the Truth of God into our lives. We must remember who we are in Christ. We must fight sin, through the power of the Holy Spirit living in us. We must also give ourselves grace to know we cannot do it all. 

God is gracious and merciful. He will help you, His precious daughter, to do what you need to each day. If it's taking a nap, preparing a nursery, cooking a meal, or keeping your tongue in check, God will give you the ability to do it. Cry out to Him! Every moment of everyday ask Him to help you over come. 

If God is for us, who can be against us? No one!
