God’s Plan To Defeat Our Enemies
July 22, 2021

Today’s 333 Devotional: “God’s Plan To Defeat Our Enemies”

“Thus says the Lord, ‘Not my might nor by power, but by My Spirit.’” (Zechariah 4:6)

How is Satan, the enemy of our soul, defeated? It isn’t through our own strength or intelligence. Pound for pound Satan has got us outmatched. The only way we defeat Satan is first by listening and then obeying the Lord.

This was the Psalmist evaluation.

“But my people would not listen to me; Israel would not submit to me. So I gave them over to their stubborn hearts to follow their own devices. If my people would but listen to me, if Israel would follow my ways, how quickly would I subdue their enemies and turn my hand against their foes!” (Psalm 81:11-14)

God will defeat Satan and all his plans against us when we listen to God and follow His word and His way. This is one of the most powerful weapons in a believer’s arsenal.

How are we to access this weapon? It is through daily time in God’s word, along with fasting and prayer.

Jesus defeated Satan in the wilderness through God’s word. He was there fasting when Satan came in temptation, and Jesus turned away Satan at every temptation because He was listening to God, knew well His word, and the Holy Spirit, who led Him on this fast, Matthew 4:1, gave Him the words to speak.

In one of Satan’s temptations, Jesus said, “Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.” (Matthew 4:4)

We need to spend time in God’s word devotionally, that is we need to read, study, and meditate upon it, allowing it to take root within our hearts. Only then will the Holy Spirit bring these words to our remembrance.

“But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.” (John 14:26)
