Our Defeated Foe

By   •   October 1   •   Topics:


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.

    Thank You so much for sharing this with me. I have forwarded this on to friends, family and public..
    We need Jesus so bad right now.. Our country seems to be in shambles and so many people have such selfish ideas it is hard to believe that you have known these people. for so long . I know God is watching what is going on and shaking his head in disbelief.. I can’t wait to get to heaven with my Lord and Master and I pray that he will take care of my little Great Grand Children.. They are so precious. My heart aches for what some of these children are going through with these horrible people… I have been so Blessed and I owe it all to Him.. He has saved my life many times..
