When Satan Attacks

The alarm goes off and we wake up. Each morning we plan to have our typical daily routine, yet we don’t know what the day holds. Everything seems to be going as planned, but that sinful thought pops into our head. The decision we make whether to give into temptation or not can change the trajectory of not only the rest of our day but the rest of our life.

As soon as we were born, Satan began his attacks to try to steal, kill and destroy us. The Bible says “he is filled with fury, because he knows his time is short (Revelation 12:12b).”

The moment we choose to follow Jesus, we can be confident that with Jesus, we have the power to overcome Satan. Revelation 12:10 tells us, “For the accuser of our brothers and sisters, who accuses them before our God day and night, has been hurled down.”

The Bible makes it clear that Satan makes war against us when we keep God’s commands and set our eyes on Jesus. The Bible also tells us how to defeat Satan. Revelation 12:11 says that we defeat Satan through worshiping with our tongue and having a relationship with Jesus.

By following Jesus and doing what He says, no attack from Satan is ever too strong to knock us off our feet.

“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord (Romans 8:38-39).”
