How To Overcome Satan


Fallen Angel, originally uploaded by fabbio.

Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.. Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light..Be self-controlled and alert...pray continually.
1 Peter 5:8 2Cor. 11:14 1 Thess. 5:1

The world, the flesh and the devil. There are so many forces pulling us away from God. There is a battle for our souls, our wills, and our lives. Sometimes the battle seems confusing and we wonder who exactly are we fighting. Sometimes we seem to be fighting ourselves. There is a scriptual battle plan and it is simple: Pray, and don't give up. And don't give up. And don't give up.

I think you missed a vital thing here: Yes, prayer is important, but more than prayer we need to take up the Word of God on our mouths against Satan. I'm glad Jesus showed us this truth.

It's interesting that the greek word used for "mouth" is "stoma" which also means "the sharp edge of a sword". It is the spoken Word [Gk: Rhema used in Ephesians 6:18]that is the sword of the Spirit.

They overcame him [satan] by the blood of the Lamb and the Word of their testimony. [Rev 12:11]
