Excerpt from Gods Law of Attraction: The Believer’s Guide to Success and Fulfillment by Susan Lee
The Devil, Bad Guys, and the Law of Attraction
One thing that secular proponents of the law of attraction often omit the simple fact that we don’t practice the law of attraction alone. There are other forces at work, which can undermine the very things we are hoping to attract into your life.
There are times that the bad guys can use the law of attraction just as well, or maybe better, than the good guys.
How else can organized crime, Hitler’s reign of power, and child abuse be explained? I refuse to believe that the victims of those awful acts, became victims, just because they didn’t think nice enough thoughts to attract good things into their lives. No! They were victims because bad guys used the same principals with much more success.
Just as bad guys can use the laws of physics and chemistry to build bombs to hurt people, they can use the law of attraction to make bad things happen to good people; and they do it all the time. As Christians, we know they are being led by the ultimate bad guy, Satan himself. Spiritual warfare is alive and well in the world, and the law of attraction is just one of the many tools the Enemy is using to win people over to his dark side.
Subtler and less obvious than we may think, the Devil works the law of attraction to his benefit by planting negative and non-empowering thoughts into our minds every day. The law of attraction is a perfect vehicle to fight God’s people, because it works in our minds and messes with our confidence to become all that God has planned for us. That is why Paul so strongly encourages us in Ephesians 6: 10-13 to wrap ourselves in God’s strength:
“Be strong in the Lord and in his great power. Wear the full armor of God. Wear God’s armor so that you can fight against the devil’s clever tricks. Our fight is not against people on earth. We are fighting against the rulers and authorities and the powers of this world’s darkness. We are fighting against the spiritual powers of evil in the heavenly places. That is why you need to get God’s full armor. Then on the day of evil, you will be able to stand strong. And when you have finished the whole fight, you will still be standing.”
