Satan has been on the war path in my life as of recently. He saw a particular weakness and took full advantage of it, using it to bring me down and to quit spending time with the Lord.
I wasn’t prepared to fight him. I wasn’t prepared to push him away. He probably thought to himself that he was going to win. I mean, let’s face it…he has been successful in getting me to stop doing my devotions, from spending time with the Lord. But at the very last minute, I recognized my absolute need for God and have jumped off the path Satan had started to pave for me and hopped back into my walk with the Lord.
Guess what Satan? NOT TODAY! My GOD is SO MUCH BIGGER THAN YOU AND ALL YOUR TACTICS! My God rescued me from the pit of depression I was about to fall into.
This is what Satan does! He sees that weakness in us and uses it to try and destroy us. He whispers to us that we don’t matter and to just give up.
As I type this, the song Our God by Christ Tomlin came on. I love this song! And it’s so fitting for this post!
Our God is greater, our God is stronger
God You are higher than any other
Our God is Healer, awesome in power
Our God, Our God
God IS greater. He’s bigger than any problem we go through.
How do we fight Satan? With the Armor of God!
10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breast plate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people
