Did you read that? Isn’t that a beautiful thanksgiving prayer? This same prayer reflects what has been in my heart. I praise God that Satan’s attack on God’s submissive children will always end up frustrated all by HIS grace.
Yes, we may trip and stumble along the way but thank God for Psalm 37:23-24. It says,
“The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the Lord upholdeth him with his hand.”
A PERSONAL TESTIMONY
I have observed personally that the more I make decisions to pursue godliness in my life, I find that Satan works his fingers to his bones to preclude me from fulfilling my goals.
It should not surprise me because as the Bible indicates, Satan seeks to destroy God’s children with busyness and all sorts of afflictions (1 Peter 5:8).
Continuing to tread my life’s journey this far made me realize one thing: I should talk with Satan as often as He tempts me to disobey God.
Yes, I do need to pray and put on the whole armor of God as the Apostle Paul suggests us to do in Ephesians 6:10-20 but I also have to shoo Satan away! That entails talking to him and making him stop as often as he annoys me with twisted truths.
One book I read in my college years says that just as one person is afraid of his enemy’s name, Satan is terrified by the name of Jesus. Hence, anytime Satan tries to attack us, we should tell him boldly something to this effect, “Get away from here Satan, in Jesus’ name! You’re a loser and hell will always be your future destination. You can never get me to your side!”
(Lol!) It might sound funny and charismatic but I have been doing what the author suggested for years. And you know what? It is effective!
The bottom line is we can shoo Satan away using Jesus’ powerful name!
Have a victorious journey!
