We battle the Devil. The Devil, also called Satan, was an elite angel who rebelled against God, seeking to steal His glory and usurp His authority. He became the commander-in-chief of a war against God so God cast him out of heaven with a minority of angels now known as demons. Satan and his demons operate by deceiving us, seducing us, blinding us, accusing us, and seeking to influence us in such a way as to defeat us and thereby rob God of His glory (Ephesians 6:12).
To be victorious we need four ingredients.
- Know the truth by knowing the Bible
- Realize the victory is already won (Colossians 1:13; Ephesians 2:6)
- Rely on provided resources: the Son of God, the Word of God, the Spirit of God, and the people of God
- Submit to God and resist the Devil (James 4:7)
