May you come to possess the most potent weapon against evil.
If you could acquire the one weapon that would cause evil to run from you every time, what would it be? There is something that I’m willing to claim does just that.
Think with me for a minute. I’m going to ask you a question that requires some thought.
Why is it easier to believe the devil’s lies than to accept God’s promises?
If you can answer this question, you will have the answer to the first question.
Is it not a matter of your view of God? You would not hesitate to accept His promises if you actually, unequivocally trusted Him. But because you are not sure you can entirely rely on Him, you falter.
This hesitation gives the enemy the opportunity to present his case.
Somehow the arguments Satan comes up with seem so plausible you accept them as truth, and you begin to doubt. Doubt turns into disbelief, and disbelief turns into rebellion.
The enemy of your soul does not give you the facts because he is bent on hurting Jesus in any way possible. Bringing you down causes Jesus more pain than anything else.
Therefore, you can conclude that Satan’s greatest weapon is the lies he tells you.
Your most powerful tool is the trust you have in the words God gives you.
And lastly, God’s greatest asset in the fight against evil is you when you rely on Him entirely.
Psalm 9:10 ESV
And those who know your name put their trust in you, for you, O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek you.
