Victory to Overcome

I Peter 5:8

Have you ever watched a cat stalk a bird, they move with stealth then suddenly pounce on it.

The devil is like that cat, looking for opportunities to pounce on you with the intent to do you harm. I Peter 5:8 says "the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour." He could use a job loss, or he will fill you with hopelessness and despondency, and He will keep at it constantly. He wants you to accept defeat.

If we have a relationship with Christ, then He is with us when Satan attacks. The Bible says we have the victory "through our Lord Jesus Christ."* Don’t let Satan deceive you in thinking you are defeated. Let's thank God for the victory over Satan through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Father, thank you that you give us the victory to overcome the evil temptations. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

*I Cor 15:57
