Defeating satan

Hello Sweet Souls! I hope you are well this blessed Monday. God is stirring BIG things in my heart today from a few different sources! Bible Gateway rolled out their new website design today. To celebrate they kicked off Bible Verse Tweet-a-Thon. If you’re Twitter social (I hope you are) tweet a Bible Gateway link to your favorite Bible verse using the hashtag #versathon to join in and #SpreadtheWord. I tweeted Ephesians 6:10-20 – The Armor of God – it is a favorite of mine, one I recite everyday. So, imagine the stirring of my heart and Spirit when fellow Bible Gateway Blogger Grid (#bgbg2) member Craig T. Owens posted “Defeating Satan” on his blog today – perfect timing! When I read this Spirit-filled post from Craig, I knew I had to share it with all of you.

Equip yourselves, oh children of God! I pray that you will be strong in the Lord; ready and able to withstand all temptation and defeat satan like Jesus Christ.

God bless you.

  • He operates with mighty powers (Ephesians 6:12). He knows how to match strength for strength.
  • He knows the Bible (Luke 4:9-11). The difference is he only knows the words, but the…

I am a daughter of God, a servant of the Lord, a wife to a patient husband, and a mama of two forgiving boys. God has placed these three men in my life needfully so. I thank Him for them everyday. And like so many of the Lord’s children, I am a work-of-glory-in-progress. I am on a journey to reclaim and renew my life in Christ. It took me 34 years to learn that when nothing else works, God does!
