Exodus 7:11: “But Pharaoh also called the wise men and the sorcerers; so the magicians of Egypt, they also did in like manner with their enchantments.”
What Satan does is counterfeit what God tells us to do. There was God giving Moses the power to perform signs and wonders in front of the people, but Satan empowered the magicians to do the same.
It matters, then, not only whether what we do is right or wrong but also who tells us (or empowers us) to do that.
Is God asking you to do something that you don’t want to do? He will provide for you, if it’s His will for you to do it. Philippians 4:19: “And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”
"Deliver me, O my God, out of the hand of the wicked, Out of the hand of the unrighteous and cruel man. For You are my hope, O Lord God; You are my trust from my youth. By You I have been upheld from birth; You are He who took me out of my mother’s womb. My praise shall be continually of You."
We're going to go through hard times. However, remember, you've gone through hard times in the past, and you're still here. God has gotten you through those, too.
The same God that brought you out of those trials and tribulations can get you out of these trials and tribulations. He saw your situation before you did, and if you're His, He's working it out for your good. Praise God in the good times, praise God in the hard times.
