“Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”
Satan is very furious nowadays in creating adversity, hardship, tribulations among people, to turn them away from God. Satan attacks on God’s people are many and of various types. Jesus also faced temptations by Satan. The tempter came to Him and said, “If you are the son of God, change the stones to bread; if you are the son of God jump down;” Satan put the same words on some people who watched Him on the cross and they said, “if you are the son of God come down from the Cross”.
The evil one challenges every child of God about his/her child-ship with God. He will put questions in you like, how can a sinner like you be the child of God? If you are the child of God, how can these things happen to you? Such questions will bombard you every day and night.
To overcome the power of Satan, you must constantly remember that you are the child of God and He is your Father. Recall everyday that you have the right to be the child of God because you believe in Him and you have accepted Him in your life. Under any circumstances, God will never let go of His children. He will forever be at your side.
So be strong and stand firm in the truth of His mighty words. He will lead you through any tough battles of the evil and you will conquer and flee the devil in the Name of the Lord.
1 John 3:8
The one who does what is sinful is of the devil, because the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work.
The greatest love is the Love of the Father who has lavished His eternal love on us. He is so delightful to call us all His children. If we are His children and when we are in Him and He is in us, we should not sin. We should be aware that no one who lives in him should keep sinning.
If you know what is right and live accordingly, then you are righteous. If you do things which is sinful, then it belongs to the devil.
Here is the reason why the Son of God came into this world.
God appeared in this world to destroy the evil works of the devil. So if you do not do what is right then, you do not belong to God. No one who is born of God will continue to sin.
Being God’s children, God’s seeds remains in you. So realize that you have been born in God and you cannot go sinning.
Bible Verse of the Day February 28, 2013
“You are no longer foreigners and strangers, but fellow citizens with God’s people and also members of his household.”
When we move to a new environment, may be a new workplace or a new neighborhood, we feel out of place and insecure. We feel like we are living among strangers. Without knowing about their true nature, we also sometimes judge people incorrectly on the first sight. And so they become a big fear to us day by day.
But remember every human being is a child of God. No one should be neglected for an unknown cause/reason. Lets consider them as God’s own people, understand them completely and live in fellowship with each other.
