It is important to be vigilant against Satan's temptation.

Satan would like nothing more than for people to stop worshipping the good Lord. We cannot be fooled; the devil is smart and employs new tricks that can often go unnoticed. Tim Challies from Crosswalk.com shared some of the tactics Satan uses to keep us from doing what God wishes us for us to do. Here are just three of the ways Satan tries to tempt us to his side - unknowingly.

MUNTINLUPA, PHILIPPINES (Catholic Online) -

1. Satan makes the world more appealing than Him.

Most people tend to move away from God after they see the world as more attractive on the other side. Satan tempts with the worldly riches for their souls. We can see the beauty and majesty of the world, as it was created by God, who loves us the most, but the earthly riches can never be more beautiful and majestic than the Lord Himself and His love.

2. Satan flags that to worship is a burden.

The devil will do anything to defeat God and one of his tactics is to scare us with the difficulties that come with worshipping God well. Satan will continue to tell that doing all things in His glory and sacrificing our earthly lives for moments with Him are all worthless. He will even make us see and feel that those devoted suffer too much.

3. Satan will keep us from doing more for God.

Satan will try to make us stop worshipping God more than we are now; flattering us with belief that we have done enough for Him. But we haven't and we shall not rest on glorifying the Lord. Be inspired to do more.

Challies suggests that we keep track of our attitude and behavior towards the faithful worship to keep our path to God unstoppable.
