Our Defeated Foe

By   •   October 1   •   Topics:

Scripture

How do we overcome the devil in everyday life? First, we need to recognize that the devil is a defeated foe. The Son of God came to undo the work of the devil. The crucifixion of Christ, which looked like a mighty victory for Satan, turned out to be a great triumph for God, because it was on the cross that Jesus took your sins and my sins. God laid our sins on Christ, so that when our Lord bowed His head and said, “It is finished,” He was referring to the plan of redemption and salvation. Then . . . we are to resist the devil. If we resist him, Scripture says, he will flee from us. Jesus overcame the devil not by argument but simply by quoting Scripture. That is why it is so important to learn and memorize Scripture passages.

Prayer for the day

Thank You, heavenly Father, for the protection of Your Word as I face everyday temptations.

    I just wanted to say that to me and my husband Billy Graham has always been the most trusted name working for the salvation of the lost people. His son seems to be taking over the reins and letting Mr. Graham take a rest. And I read Anne everyday online, she is one of my favorites plus Ruth’s Attic. I just can’t say enough about this family. May the Lord keep you all well and strong and I will keep you in my prayers. All glory to the Lord!
