Don’t doubt for a moment the devil’s existence, and don’t doubt for a moment that he is your enemy. Forget the cute cartoon images of an impish figure with a pitchfork and a red suit; he is absolutely malicious and evil, and he has great influence over this world.
He is strong, and he is determined to make you stumble. But we are not defenseless! God has provided us with all the armor we need – armor so strong that Satan and his servants cannot penetrate it. Truth, righteousness, peace, faith, salvation, the Word of God, prayer – every one of these has its part in defeating our adversary.
Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.
