Christians are engaged in a spiritual battle with the devil. Although most churches do not teach this, Satan—our enemy—is at work behind the scenes trying to destroy us. He has devised specific strategies against each of us in the hope that we will remain unaware of who is behind the attacks. However, believers have been given authority over the devil and we must not be afraid to use our power. Our faith in Jesus and our decision to be humble and submit to God’s Word are powerful weapons the devil cannot stand up to; he cringes in fear and runs when we do this. Humility is key here because it allows God to show us grace, which gives us the victory in spiritual warfare. We win when we abandon our self-efforts and trust God to do what we cannot.
