Be aware of Satan's schemes.

JUN. 22, 2024

Be aware of Satan's schemes.

'In order that Satan might not outwit us. For we are not unaware of his schemes." 2Co 2:11 NIV

Walking in spiritual victory calls for understanding Satan's "schemes." 

Here are some points at which you're particularly vulnerable: 

  • when you feel up, 

  • when you feel down, 

  • when you're alone, 

  • when you're exhausted, and 

  • when you have experienced loss. 

There is no such thing as fair play with the devil. 

  • If you give him an inch, he will take a mile. 

  • If you give him an entry point into your life, he will use it against you. 

Notice the two occasions on which Satan attacked Jesus.

First, at His birth. Herod put out an order to kill every Jewish boy under the age of two. That's why as a new believer, you must develop the daily habits of 

  • Prayer , 

  • Bible reading, and 

  • Fellowshiping with those who can strengthen you in your walk with God.

Second, on the threshold of His ministry. For forty days, Jesus did battle with Satan in the wilderness. Why did the struggle last so long?

It was over His future. "Now when the devil had ended every temptation. he departed from Him...Then Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit to Galilee, and news of Him went out through all the surrounding region" (Lk 4:13-14 NKJV). 

Attack is a sign of respect; it means Satan has discerned your potential.

And the level of his attack is an indication of the level of blessing God has in store for you on the other side of it. So instead of being discouraged about the battle, see it as a sign from God that your best days are ahead of you.

Be aware of Satan's schemes

Your best days are ahead of you.
