As believers, we hear so much about Satan’s schemes. But often, we give him too much credit. While Satan certainly has many tricks up his sleeve, God gives us the power to overcome. Jennifer Heeren is a Christian author who loves encouraging others. And here, she outlines a whole list of things Satan can’t do!
“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full” (John 10:10).
If Satan can steal, kill, and destroy, how can I overcome him? He can steal the word and God’s promises right out of my head, leaving me with no way to fight. He can cause tragic situations to happen and even kill me. He can destroy relationships and things that I cherish. What can I do?
I can turn to Jesus and love God with my whole heart, mind, and strength. Then, those horrible things that Satan can do become less of a problem. God’s abundant and full love overflows within me and gives me the ability to withstand Satan’s battles.
