dream, pray, do

 Michelangelo God created Adam

Week 5 of dream, pray, do - Questions to ponder from "An Enemy Called Average" by John L. Mason

Does the devil know who I am?

Yes, of course the devil knows who we are.....the more important question is, how well does the devil know us? Better yet, how well does God know us?

We constantly live in a world of good vs. evil. Good coming from God and evil coming from the devil. We must strive every day to resist temptations that we know are bad for us......even Jesus was tempted by the devil....

"Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil." -Matthew 4:1

Remember, Jesus is victorious over the devil. The devil can only take over if we let him. Jesus delegated authority to use His Name to those who believe in Him. We must exercise that authority, or the devil can take hold and wreak havoc in our lives.

 Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing will injure you. -Luke 10:19

Submit therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.  -James 4:7

The choice is ours......
