When your car breaks down every time you are planning to attend church or a bible study….
When criticism or resentment comes out of the mouth that promised to love you til death do us part….
When we decide to go get a triple scoop ice cream sundae, instead of going to the audition, because we know we won’t get the part anyway….
When the contract falls through because of a technical clause in the fine print….
it is very likely Satan, messing with your confidence and putting lies in your head.
It is in this moment, that Satan steals, kills and destroys our hope, our heart, and our soul.
Until we turn back.
When you started praying again after years of anger towards God for not blessing you with a child….
When you stepped out in faith and began to tithe even though your spouse lost their job last week….
When you clung to God and stayed in His Word all through the project that you were working on with that tempting coworker…
When you went to serve children in the battered women’s shelter on the anniversary of your mother’s death from abuse…
We are reminded who is in control.
We are reminded that we can cling to God for protection from Satan.
Fortunately God has already conquered Satan. As believers, we know this. But Satan’s lies are convincing. The moment we are distracted, the moment we turn our eyes from God, the moment the world pulls us into the crowd…..He is there to inflict doubt, suffering, and deceit into our hearts and minds.
Our protection, and weapon, every time is to turn back to God.
The triumphant Christian does not fight for victory; he celebrates a victory already won.

In eternity, Satan is impotent to harm you. Claim eternity beginning now!
