We Can Win


“Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.” 1 Peter 5: 8

We live in a perpetual war zone. The moment we wake up, temptations are already waiting for us. Even those who maintain a close relationship with God are not immune to battles of the flesh versus the Holy Spirit in us.

Like a roaring lion, the enemy is always ready to attack us anytime of the day. How self-controlled are we to shield ourselves against the evil schemes of the adversary?

The good news is we are not alone in our battle. God is our Shield and Strength. He gives us His Word, The Bible, as our manual for holy living. It is the Sword of the Spirit. “All Scripture is given by God and is useful for teaching, for showing what is wrong with our lives, for correcting faults, and for teaching how to live right.” (2 Timothy 3:16) Are we using our Sword?

Our next protection against the attack of the Enemy is prayer. One theologian once said that if our only prayer is “Thank You God” that would be enough. Acknowledging our Creator first thing in the morning pleases Him. What more if we do it anytime of the day? The devil trembles at our prayers.

Charles Stanley wrote in Life Principles Bible: “Fight all your battles on your knees and you win every time.”

What are you battling right now? Is it worrying too much about the future? Your health? Your financial situation? Your mind? Whatever it is, you are not alone. God knows how weak we all are. Yet we can all fight our own battles by first admitting that we need God. Then ask forgiveness for our sins. He is ready to forgive anytime.

We can win! If God is for us, who can be against us?


Prayer:

Our Sovereign God, thank You for Your promises that You will never leave us nor forsake us. Help us to have faith in You that’s strong enough to counteract the attacks of the enemy. Help us not to consent to our lust nor slide into sin. Forgive us for our shortcomings, for our negative thoughts, for worrying, for each careless and worthless words, and works of the flesh. Help us to cling to Your Word and to remain in You from now on. In Jesus Name, Amen.

Dear Gloria, This is an excellent devotional! When we are armed with God's Word and when we stay connected to Him through prayer, we can win our battles and overcome temptations. And, isn't it incredible that we can reach our Father by uttering a simple 'Thank you' to Him each day! That is awesome! Thank you for sharing these wonderful reminders and helping us all stay close to our Lord. Blessings and love, SiS Peggy
