Will You Confront The Enemy???

“There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.”—Romans 8:1

God knows that sin is a terrible thing-and the devil knows it, too. So he follows us around and as long as we will permit it, he will taunt us about our past sins.

As for myself, I have learned to talk back to him on this score. I say, “Yes, Devil, sin is terrible-but I remind you that I got it from you! And I remind you, Devil, that everything good— forgiveness and cleansing and blessing-everything that is good I have freely received from Jesus Christ!”

Everything that is bad and that is against me I got from the devil—so why should he have the effrontery and the brass to argue with me about it? Yet he will do it because he is the devil, and he is committed to keeping God’s children shut up in a little cage, their wings clipped so that they can never fly!

“Thank You again this morning, Father, for Your marvelous ‘forgiveness and cleansing and blessing.’ I’ve often heard those taunts from the Devil; thank You for Your grace that completely silences him. Amen.”

  1. Amen brother, there is nothing the devil likes better than to drag the rest of us down with him but we should be like Paul in Phil 4:13-14 “…But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
