Does Satan Bully You?

Bullying, in its purest form, works like this.  I am stronger than you. Therefore I am right.

Right and wrong are sacrificed on the altar of strength.  If you disagree with a bully, they just keep ramping up their threats or actions until you finally cry, "Uncle."  

Now you know how Satan works.  He bullies you into believing in fear over faith.  

Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego (Dan 3) were being bullied by Nebuchadnezzar.  They stood up to the bully and called His bluff.  For that, he threatened to kill them, by fire, in a furnace, in front of everyone.  

They didn't budge.  

That's because their faith in God was greater than their fear of King Nebuchadnezzar.  

2 Timothy 1:7 For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.

Don't allow Satan to bully you.  Call his bluff.  Sure he will threaten you - but in the end, He cannot touch you.  As a follower of Jesus, you come under the protection of the Almighty.  Now you have to believe in that.  Sometimes even as you feel the heat of a fiery furnace.  But you will prevail.  God never loses. 

PRAY:  Dear Jesus, help me stand up to my bullies.  AMEN
