Satan is a Vanquished Foe - Thursday's Dose - 19th October 2017

“God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son” - (1 John 5:11).

Thoughts for Today

A traveler in New Mexico saw a Native American with his head to the ground as if he was listening. The traveler heard him muttering, "Wagon, one driver, two passengers, and two horses".

The traveler was absolutely amazed and said to the Native American, "You mean to tell me that you can tell all of this by listening to the ground?"

"No", was the reply. They just ran over me a few minutes ago.

There are many believers who have been run over by Satan and do not know how to get up and fight back.

There was a camel driver who was taking a caravan across the desert for a few day's journey. One morning the driver said to his companions, "We had intruders last night." They looked at him in amazement and asked how he could tell, when they had neither heard nor seen anyone. He pointed to the tracks in the sand the intruder left behind.

If anyone does not believe in Satan, let him open his eyes to the tracks he leaves—broken homes and devastated families. As a believer in Jesus Christ, you are given authority over Satan. He is a defeated foe.

However, Jesus does not prevent him from attacking believers. In John 12, Jesus reminds His disciples that Satan is a vanquished foe. Jesus said, "Now is the time for judgment on this world; now the prince of this world will be driven out"(John 12:31).

After Jesus' resurrection, Satan's sentence was passed down. Now it is a matter of waiting for God's timing to carry out the sentence. When Jesus returns, He will execute His judgment against Satan.

While there is no mistaking Satan's future, your eternal future can be decided by committing your life to the ultimate Victor, the only One who offers eternal life—Jesus Christ.

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, 
Please help me to see the plans and attacks of the enemy clearly—and to take the authority I have been given in Christ over satan. Thank you that he is a vanquished foe. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen." 

Have a Blessed Thursday and God Bless you.
