3 Epic Ways to Make the Devil Scream “OH NO” Today

I just guest-posted on Young Ladies for Christ. It would mean the world to me if you checked the post out right here! Here’s a little snippet:

(Note: At the end of the guest post, I give away a free PDF. If you’re part of the Madi Grace email list, you’ve already gotten it! If you have trouble finding it, just contact me and I’ll re-send it to you no problem.)

I live life every day wanting to be the type of young lady who, when my feet hit the floor in the morning, makes the devil scream “OH NO, SHE’S UP!”

And it’s not a hard thing to do. Today I have three simple, actionable ways guaranteed to bring you joy and bring the devil turmoil.

Also, at the end of this post, I have my absolute favorite way to kick the devil’s butt in a free, downloadable PDF you’re welcome to grab. That way alone has changed my life and took me from a radical pessimist to a radical optimist. 


We all have problems. There’s no denying them or ignoring them.

Sometimes—most of the time, really—I’m tempted to vent about them. I just want to complain and be mad and it can take up my entire day if I let it.

But when we switch the focus, something happens. Fixing our eyes on Jesus instead of on our circumstances not only gives us joy, but it makes the devil infuriated. If he can get you focused on everything going wrong, he’ll get you depressed and living swayed by emotion.

Instead, start praising the God Who makes a way out of all that and turns everything around for His good!

When you release praise into the atmosphere, you release stuff the devil and all of hell can’t stand.

    “I want to be the kind of woman who, when my boots hit the floor in the morning, the Devil says ‘Oh no; she’s up!’ ” I have a shirt that has that very same quote on it! I firmly believe what it says, too. ;3
