October 26th – 1 John 5:19

1 John 5:19

Even though God is sovereign, Satan is the current ruler over the world. Meaning his hand is in every wickedness which permeates the earth. His lies and deception never miss a chance to pollute and corrupt everything good, taking pleasure in seeing us fall. But as children of the most high God, we are far from helpless against his machinations. For we as Christian’s have the power of God inside of us through the Holy Spirit. And God’s Spirit equips us for war, as He gives us the strength to turn aside from worldly temptations. For as John tells us, “He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.” (1 John 4:4) Satan will never stop trying to destroy us, and will do all he can to try and undermine our faith. But by putting on the armor of God, as told in Ephesians 6:11, we have everything we need to not only stand up against any and all enemies, but to live a life of victory through our Savior, Jesus Christ.
