Wow, Pastor, you were on fire this morning!
Sometimes a sermon hit a certain point where it gets personal and today was one of those days.
I really, really, really don't like Satan intimidating people. His goal is to destroy you. I mean completely destroyed. I realize as I said this morning that facing Satan is like meeting the defensive line of a college football team. But I also said that it isn't impossible.
James 4:7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
Submit: You word will never scare the Devil. But when God speaks, he shivers. When you submit to God, He speaks blessing over your life.
Resist: Satan will never just, "go away." You have to resist. TELL him to shut up. STAY AWAY from his temptations. SAY no to his lies. SPEAK the truth. As it said this morning. When he reminds you of your past (and he will - frequently) remind him of his future.
PRAY: Dear Jesus, keep Satan and temptation as far away from me as possible. AMEN
