Put on all of God’s armor
so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil.
The devil is strategic. He takes advantage of a series of events or challenges to get you to fail, causing a domino effect in your life.
Just one look or taste, or a little lulling into oblivion is all it takes.
If the devil can get us to compromise a little, we’ve started to tip over.
Soon things are collapsing around us so fast we’re out of control, and we give up the fight to win. He knows exactly what to put in front of us to get us to fall. It probably looks harmless at first. He appeals to our senses and if we’re not careful, we’ll justify our actions and give in.
We can’t afford to give the devil a moment or dignify him with a reaction to the things he throws at us.
Live intentionally with God on the throne of your life every day.
