Believers are engaged in spiritual warfare. We have a real enemy straight from hell who is determined to kill us; however, although we need to know how to do battle, we do not need to fear. The devil’s ultimate objective is to get us to walk away from God, but he cannot do so when we’re vigilant and watching for his strategies and sneak attacks. It is critical to understand that although we are saved, we still must fight. Standing solid in the Word of God gives us a tremendous advantage; we are fighting a defeated enemy who is well aware that he has been beaten. Satan wants deceit and falsehood in our lives; we combat that by cloaking ourselves with the various truths found in God’s Word. Darkness cannot stand against light; the light of the gospel will always be able to break up and disperse the devil’s dark deception.
