“If we are faithless, he remains faithful— for he cannot deny himself.”
2 Timothy 2:13
Satan is the ultimate deceiver. He’s a trickster. Constantly trying to slip into our thoughts and shake our faith. When he succeeds and gets a foothold in our lives, we have to remember that we can regain our footing at the foot of the cross. Even when we fall for Satan’s schemes, the blood of Christ has us covered. That’s the beauty of the gospel.
This has been an ongoing lesson in my life, but it’s one I keep coming back to time and again. Satan’s schemes are many. His tricks and tactics are tempting. But Jesus is constant.
That’s the hope I cling to each and every day. Satan is always roaming round, trying to find a crack in our armor so he can gain a foothold. Being strong in God’s Word can help us prevent Him from getting a foothold, but it can also restore our footing when he does.
Romans 8:38-39 says, “For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
So many times I’ve needed that promise.
My post is the last in a series of posts on Standing Against Satan. It’s been an amazing journey and I’m honored to be a part of it.
Also, I’d love to hear from you – how has the gospel helped you regain your footing? Let me know by leaving a comment below or on my post on Nicole’s site here.
