The Devil Knows History
1 Peter 5:8 says, “Be sober, be vigilant because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.”
The Devil fears people who are set apart for God because he knows history well. He’s been around long enough to see the Esthers, the Davids, the Gideons rise up and literally destroy his plans and parts of his kingdom. He knows what happens when someone rises and says they’re going to go all the way with God. He knows when people recognize it’s not by their righteousness that victories are won but by the righteousness and the power of God.
The Devil has been around long enough to see the outcome of a believer’s soberness and vigilance, and it scares him. He will try the best he can to take away your promises, your hope, your confidence, and your victory. Today, I want to challenge you. Hold on to Jesus as history has shown victory is yours.
It’s time to pray.
