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.

Are you struggling with temptation? Read this story about how to defeat it.

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

    Satan never rests. One way we know this is because of the continued moral decay of society and the increased rejection of Christianity. Once mighty Rome encountered the same situation, prior to its fall. However God is all-powerful and Satan is a defeated foe. So as believers we must find comfort and remember Scripture, as the end is already written.
