No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.1 Corinthians 10:13
The Lord is with me; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me? (Psalm 118:6). All Christians live in victory as long as they remain faithful to our Lord. There is nothing the world can do to us that will cause the Lord to withhold his strength that enables us to overcome Satan’s temptations. The Lord has given us victory through his divine power.
Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell (Matthew 10:28). Satan can kill the body but he cannot kill our spirit, and life is in our spirit which never dies, and if our spirit leaves the body, the body is dead. The body without the spirit is dead. (James 2:26) God has created us so the world cannot touch our spirit, we are the only ones who can destroy our soul, because we have free will.
The persecution of Christians is occurring throughout the world, because Satan is busy attacking governments with his lies and deceptions. Satan is influencing government leaders to put fear in Christians by viewing Christians as evil. Satan also places his people in the church to introduce false doctrine, to corrupt Christians.
But the Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen you and protect you from the evil one. (2 Thessalonians 3:3) God protects us from Satan, because He has total control over Satan. When Satan attacks us, we call on Christ for victory. We have the power of God to give our life victory over the world, and we need the desire of victory over sin. For everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. (1 John 5:4) And we can live in victory through our faith and we must have the desire to overcome sin.
Today know that you live in victory no matter what happens in this world. Walk without fear but with the attitude of victory in Christ and with a heart of love to help the lost.
Pray: Lord I depend on you to live this day for your glory. Give me the strength to praise your holy name to my last breath. In Jesus name, Amen.
