As a Christian the devil is going to try and get you off track over and over again. As a Christian he has already lost you for eternity and since he can’t kill you he will try to bring you into a place where you are not effective for God or try to make you feel separated from God by making you feel trapped by temptations and sins. It’s a day to day battle that we are faced with and with everyday it’s easy to look at the natural situations in our lives and forget that Our God already won the war through Our Lord Jesus Christ. We must remember that we are covered by the blood of Jesus and that the devil has no place in our lives. In fact how dare he try to come against one of God’s children. The devil is defeated and he is a liar, do not believe him when he tells you that you are a defeated, worthless, person that God could never forgive, he is trying to pull you back under the judgment that bound you before you were saved, the place where he is eternally bound for eternal judgement. We are so valuable to God that He sent His only Son Jesus to die on the cross for our sins, taking our punishment on Himself, setting us free from condemnation, cleansing us from our sins, and putting us under His grace so that we can live with Him in Heaven for eternity. Our God and King has won the war and so we must never give up, resting in the victory that is given us through Our Lord Jesus Christ. If you are fighting a battle right now God wants you to know that He has won the war and although the battle is tough He is with you and He is your strength. Don’t give up, remember His promises, pray, hope, and trust Him to bring you into the victory. A war and the small battles that follow are no match for Our God !
