Don’t be Deceived by Satan – Part 2
For I am the Lord your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help youIsaiah 41:13
One of Satan’s most powerful weapons is fear, fear of the unknown. Satan is changing the world in hopes of putting fear in us, so we will deny Christ. That is why Satan has the world persecuting Christians, in hopes they will deny Christ so they can be free in this world. The Lord gives us his strength to endure whatever we need, and to keep walking with Christ to our last breath.
Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. (1 Peter 5:8) Satan is trying to deceive us by making us fearful of the future, but if we are alert, we can overcome all of Satan’s attacks of lies and deceptions. However, fear may be one of the strongest of Satan’s weapons to overcome. Fear is a God given emotion, but Satan uses fear to deceive us.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. (Psalm 23:4) We have control over Satan’s fear when we are comforted by God in every situation in life. God’s love for us conquers hate from Satan, and will live in victory to our last breath. Through the power of the Lord, every attack from Satan will backfire, and we will be closer to Lord.
“No weapon that is formed against you will prosper, and every tongue that accuses you in judgment you will condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their vindication is from Me,” declares the Lord. (Isaiah 54:17 ) Satan’s lies, deceptions, and fear, will not prosper against us, because we walk with the power and strength of God; and Heaven is our eternal home.
With Christ always with us, a strong church family, knowing the Word, and prayer; we have nothing to fear, because we have conquered the world. When our flesh dies, we go home to be with the Father and the Son, with a perfect young body that never ages. Satan has no power over us!
Today know you have the power of God to overcome all Satan’s lies and deceptions. And the Lord will use all of Satan’s attacks to draw us closer to Him.
Prayer: Lord guide me through this day to overcome any attacks from Satan; attacks of anger or fear. In Jesus name, Amen
