“But Peter said, ‘Ananias, why has Satan filled your heart that you should lie to and attempt to deceive the Holy Spirit, and should [in violation of your promise] withdraw secretly and appropriate to your own use part of the price from the sale of the land?'” (Acts 5:3 AMP)
He’s there you know. You know who. The liar. The whisperer.

“You don’t have the money.”
“How are you going to pay this bill or that bill?”
“Why you want to give money to that ole church any way?”
“Look at all the prosperous people in the world, do you see them tithing/giving?”
What do you think? Does the enemy have a role in giving?
