The Enemy Deceives Us

sword and shield

Many jokes are made about the devil, but the devil is no joke. If a short time ago I had talked about Satan to university students, they would have made light of him, but no longer. Students today want to know about the devil, about witchcraft, about the occult. Many people do not know they are turning to Satan. They are being deluded because, according to Jesus Christ, Satan is the father of lies and the greatest liar of all times. He is called a deceiver. In order to accomplish his purpose, the devil blinds people to their need of Christ. Two forces are at work in our world-the forces of Christ and the forces of the devil-and you are asked to choose.

Prayer for the day

I have chosen to serve You, my Lord Jesus. Give me Your strength to battle the deceptions of Satan.

    Gracious loving heavenly Father. I thank You for this day and time spend in daily devotion. I thank you for Billy Graham Ministries which keep our lives moving. Thank You Lord God, help never to be deceived by Satan. In this world there are lot of deceptions. Young people just Don’t know the right path and they fall to these deceptions. Lord God I bring before everyone caught up in addiction in lust, cheating and wanting to be rich they feel with these they will be happy. Let them know that true happiness is in keep you word. Yes Lord God help us to have faith as our shield to fight temptations. Help us grow more in your word as faith comes by reading and reading the Word Of God. Amen

    The end is written in God’s Holy Word. Jesus paid the price for our redemption at Calvary. Although Satan is still very active, attempting to deceive whoever he can before his time ends. Be aware, as Billy very aptly points out above, that spiritual warfare is genuine….seek the shelter of God, every day.

    Many are deceived in our culture today, and yes, the devil seems to be winning at times. And yet we as Christians must move forward, keep on declaring the gospel of Jesus Christ, stay in the word and pray for the lost.
