" Little Children,you are of God - you belong to Him - and have [already] defeated and overcome them (the agents ofantichrist], because He Who lives in you is greater (mightier) than he who is in the world."
(I John 4:4).
"We wrestle against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world" Ephesians 6:12
If you experience turmoil in your mind as you struggle to do what is right,that is a certain sign that you are a child of God.
Non-Christians do not suffer over their sins.They belong to Satan's kingdom and are content to do Satan's work.
As Christians we strive to submit to Lord, to recognize Satan's wickedness, resist it and pray that God will cause him to flee.
Warfare in the Christian life is real. If you are not standing against Satan, you are standing with him.
God tells us to submit to the Lord,
resist the devil and he will flee from you.
How do we do that?
If you are confused, depressed,angry,feeling sorry for yourself, critical of others, thank God that He overcame Satan's work on the cross. Thank Him that you are coming boldly before the throne of grace that you may find help in your time of need.
Look up the following Scriptures and use them in prayer to resist Satan's work.
