Satan is crafty and wise. He is skillful. And he is always on the prowl. The angles and means of his attacks are actually quite impressive. Satan uses many voices to plant fear, doubt, anxiety, guilt, lust… in our heads and hearts – some from inside our own heads, some from the voices of those we know, some from society and the media.At every chance he is working to build up our pride, our stubbornness, our individualism. All with one goal – to pull us away from God.
But God doesn’t pull back. He simply invites us into a relationship. He says, “Here I am, come.” He offers us love, no strings attached. God is our true friend. These things never change.
In our faith we need to be vigilant and alert to Satan’s attacks. But just as sure as the attacks are to come, we can be even more sure of God’s love and care. When we call upon the saving name of Jesus, then Satan will flee. God will strengthen us and will help us to be steadfast and firm. God will never fail us because He loves us too much to allow that to happen.
