On Halloween, multitudes party and don’t really believe the dangers or the reality of Satan. You don’t want to focus on Satan this week or any other time, but it’s important to know that He does indeed intend to “steal, kill, and destroy” your life (John 10:10). It’s vital that you know his schemes.
We know from 2 Corinthians 2:11 that we are not to be ignorant of his schemes, we are not to let Satan outwit us and take advantage of us.
Did you know that Satan wants to shake your confidence in your relationship with God the Father?
What do you do in times like these? Ephesians 6:11 and 16 say, “ Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil....taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.”
Dear friend, what God has spoken in light and assurance, do not doubt! James 4:7 tells us: “Submit therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.”
