Rom 8:36-37 (AMP) Even as it is written, For Thy sake we are put to death all the day long; we are regarded and counted as sheep for the slaughter. [Ps 44:22.] 37 Yet amid all these things we are more than conquerors and gain a surpassing victory through Him Who loved us.
One of the devil’s biggest lies to Christians is that God does not love them as much as they think. But the truth is that God loves us more than we think.
The devil understands that if he can get a Christian to doubt the reality of God’s love for him, that Christian’s faith will be unstable. The devil’s ultimate goal is to make a believer’s faith fail (see Luke 22:31). But we don’t let this happen by persistently using God’s word to resist his lies and wiles. We fight the good fight of faith.
Amid persecutions or trials, when a Christian’s confidence in God’s love does not waver, he will conquer because his faith will only grow stronger and not fail.
The most precious thing you have is your faith, and the devil does everything to make you lose it because he knows that your salvation is received [and sustained] through faith. Satan’s biggest weapon against your faith is sin. When a Christian continues to willfully walk in sin and does not fight it, he is tampering with his good [healthy] conscience and playing with the likelihood of shipwrecking his faith (see 1 Tim 1:18-19). Sin ultimately produces spiritual death (separation from God). See James 1:15. Your relationship with God is through your faith. Walking in sin causes spiritual death because it gradually erodes your faith (see Rom 8:13, Rom 6:23).
Go into today knowing that Christians who chose to live by the word of God will not fall for Satan’s traps calculated to make them lose their faith.
