Psalm 64: Enemy Exposed

Posted by on Apr 9, 2017 in Blog | 0 comments

Our adversary is the father of lies.

Jesus called him a “thief” and said plainly that Satan aims only to “steal, kill and destroy.” (John 10:10) He specializes in cheap shots. Slander for him is second nature.

He blissfully exploits our greatest vulnerabilities and capitalizes on our confusion. Every deed of his is saturated with sinister intent. He never plays fair. He has no conscience and revels in our adversity. He is relentless in his pursuit of our downfall, and will not surrender until he is forced to do so. Oh, what a day that will be.

Though fierce, he is defeated.

We do well to ask – as Jesus did on our behalf – that our Father in Heaven “keep us from the evil one.” (John 17:15) Having prayed, and with great assurance, “Resist the devil and he will flee from you.” (James 4:7) “… He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.” (1 John 4:4)
