Weekend Words & Sunday Stanzas – 02/10/2013

Here is another reminder to find wisdom over at Proverbial Thought!

Last week the poem was about overcoming temptation and struggle by the power of God.

Do you know what I have found over the last decade? In most instances, Satan has power over us for one simple reason: WE LET HIM! It is as though we forget we serve an all-powerful God, the Creator of everything. Even Satan needs to ask God for permission to do ANYTHING! (See the first chapter of Job)

We need to remember that through the power of Jesus Christ Satan is vanquished! HALLELUJAH!

vanquished  

why do we let satan win
why is he given so much power
God has told us he is nothing
Christ defeated him forever
there is no power over us
no person or thing to hold sway
when Jesus died on the cross
He vanquished our enemy
the only power the devil has
is the power we relinquish
he frantically seeks to get it
because he knows he is finished
when a person responds to Christ
and the Spirit begins to move inside
that is accepting the gift on the Cross
which is power in this life
satan has no more hold on us
that devil has lost his grip
praise the Lord for what He did
now that satan is vanquished

  1. YES, AMEN AND AMEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Thank you! When this little “secret” was shown to me six years ago, it had such an impact on my life. Most of my temptations suddenly became less so! I still had to work on my own issues, but God has helped with that as well!
