A Letter to satan

Dear satan,

There have been many times in my life when I have questioned: “why?”

Why if there was a God, didn’t He just let me die at certain times my life? Why if there was a God, did He bring me into this earth? Why if there was a God, did He not stop certain events from happening to me?

Yet, it has taken me years to understand that it wasn’t God who was to blame for this, but a mixture of events, decisions, and actions from others and even myself, that led to unbearable pain emotionally, physically, and spiritually

But, honestly, for a while there, you got me! I believed you! You had won because I genuinely hated God. I hated Him with everything in me, but I also hated myself!

I now realise that, actually, that was your biggest downfall, because God created humanity with the natural inclination to ask “why,” and things didn’t make sense to me

I couldn’t understand why I felt alone, when there are billions of people on this planet? Or, why I had every horrible name running through my brain as to why I was worthless, useless, pathetic. But when I received a Bible for the first time, I realised that it went against everything you had had me believe – so again I questioned, “why?”

God has since taken me through events, even as a child, to rewrite the lies that you had me believe. Seeing the pain that I have caused to myself and others has been a realisation of the devastation you leave while trying to destroy everything that God has created me for, and yet, that was the epiphany…

You kept trying to destroy me…

If I was worthless why did you have to keep coming back?

God showed me ”why” through Scripture, because I came across a verse that allowed me to realise that you intended to harm me, but God intended it all for good. God now takes my mess of a life, and He has brought me to this position so that I can save the lives of many people (Genesis‬ ‭50:20‬)

God has shown me my true identity…my true worth…and my purpose. God has won the ultimate victory, because I have given my life to Him, and that means I have finally realised that you are the ultimate loser

My hearts desire is for everyone to have an intimate relationship with Christ. To hear the voice of God and to experience His presence. Also, to help disciple others to discover their purpose within the body of Christ - through the power of the Holy Spirit.

My God-given dream is to break down barriers within life and the Church as a whole to strengthen and develop relationships within every denomination and bring unity - so that we will collectively raise up together and fulfil the Great Commission, within this lifetime.

I am living proof that no matter what your past was or whatever your life has become - God will use you to fulfil what He created you to do, when you step out in obedience and faith.
