The devil shows me everything that is sin in me so I confess that the one in me is greater than He that is in the world.

Life is easy when you are up on the mountain but when our faith is tested God wants us to rely on Him. God of the mountain is still God of the valley.

God knows our shortcomings and He tests us in those areas where we are weak. We tend to forget the good things He has given us. We need to ask grace to face problems rather than asking God to take the problem away.
