Is Satan Mad at Me??

My pastor made a comment in sermon on Sunday that has really stuck with me.... He was preaching out of Nehemiah (Chapters 1-4) and his desire to rebuild the wall. When he got to the part about Sanballat being "wroth" at Nehemia's work, he asked : " how angry is satan with you over the work you are doing for God?" (paraphrasing here some)
I've been thinking a bunch about that lately. Is what I'm doing in my life and light God has given me actually angering the enemy OR am I making him happy by making his job easier to lead a soul away from Christ? Is he laughing at me as I openly bring a reproach upon the gospel by making a mockery of being a Christian by biting and devouring other Christians over the doctorine that is supposed to unite us?? Am I helping him confuse non believers about the foundation of salvation by adding my own convictions that aren't black and white scripture?? Lord pray not! I pray that my life and works for you throw satan into a big old tizzy of a temper tandrum!

HI Jamala,

I just read your comment over at Breathing Grace and i want you to know that I am praying for you, sister. I could hear the heartbreak in your words about what life is bringing you now and what appears to be a situation where you have to go back to work. I can only imagine with a wee one what that must feel like. No, I can't imagine. So I am praying for you.

Also wanted you to know that I am always blessed by your perspectives at Breathing Grace, and here when I stop in, and appreciate your honesty and servant's heart.

God Bless,
