God loves you and the promises He makes to you are true. The same cannot not be said for the enemy. Satan is hatin' you because of God's love for you. Satan is hatin'.
In life, you experience ups and downs. You should trust the Lord in all circumstances, even when you do not understand the reasons why you are going through difficult situations. When you "trust in the Lord with all of your heart and do not lean on your own understanding and in all your ways acknowledge Him, He will direct your paths" (Proverbs 3:5,6 NKJV). Especially during difficult times, Satan whispers lies with the hope you will believe him and lose trust in the Truth. Because the Lord will "lead you into paths of righteousness" (Psalm 23:3 NKJV), Satan is hatin'.
Reading, meditating on, and believing in the Word of God, will help you keep your eyes on Jesus. Your focus will remain on Him and not your circumstances. Satan sends distractions, but you are not easily distracted when your focus is on the Lord. Because your eyes are on the Prize, Satan is hatin'.
"God will keep you in perfect peace when your mind is stayed on Him" (Isaiah 26:3 NKJV). Satan wants to torment and would love to see you lacking in peace. Jesus is the Prince of Peace. He will give you peace in the midst of chaotic and unfortunate situations. Because you have peace, Satan is hatin'.
You praise the Lord. You give Him honor. You give Him glory. You worship the Lord. You adore Him. You love Him with all your heart. These things belong to the Lord. You deny Satan these things. Oh yes! Satan is hatin'.
Do not be fooled by the enemy. Satan has no love for you and wants no good thing for you. "The thief does not come except to steal, kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that, they may have it more abundantly." (John 10:10 NKJV). Satan has plan and it includes stealing, killing, and destroying every good thing the Lord has for you. With Jesus, you have a life filled with blessings that are overflowing and exceed anything you could ever imagine. Beware of the wicked tactics because Satan is hatin'......on you.

"So He Himself often withdrew into the wilderness and prayed." Luke 5:16 NKJV
"Now in the morning, having risen a long while before daylight, He went out and departed to a solitary place; and there He prayed." Mark 1:35 NKJV
The above scriptures show us that Jesus carved out time to get to a quiet place. As Jesus' public ministry grew, so did the number of followers. He is followed by those who need miracles performed in their lives and for the hearing of His teachings. Of course, He gives Himself to the multitude of people. He heals, delivers, teaches, and blesses the people. If Jesus, with all of His power and miracle works, needed quiet time with His Father, then believers should follow His example and get to that quiet place.
How often do you withdraw from the busyness in your life to get to that quiet place with God? It is in that quiet place that you will hear His voice. It is in that quiet place that you will receive instruction, wisdom, knowledge and understanding. It is in that quiet place that you will find peace. Make it a point to get to that quiet place each day and enjoy the blessings that follow.
