Defeating the Devil is Possible!

By Ben Bailey

 The Bible clearly teaches that the Devil is a serious adversary who desires to devour our soul.  The Apostle Peter said, “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour” (1 Peter 5:8).  While the devil is a fearful foe, the good news is we can and must defeat the Devil.  Here are three ways we can defeat Satan.
 Resist the Devil.  “Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world” (1 Peter 5:9).  The encouragement Peter gives to suffering Christians is that they can resist the adversary.  Although the devil is a fearful foe, you can defeat him!
 Realize his Tactics.  The devil has many tricks up his sleeve to use against the Christian.  Satan is characterized as a wiley and conniving creature (1 Tim. 3:7, Eph. 6:10-11).  Satan has a large arsenal of weapons including worldliness, lust, defeat, and even self.  But, if we will study the nature and tactics of Satan it will help us defeat him.
 Read the Bible.   At the temptation of Jesus, He overcame Satan by saying three times, “It is written” (Matt. 4).  Jesus was so well versed in the Bible that it was His primary defense against the devil, and it worked.  Today, if we are going to overcome Satan we must know the Word of God.  The Psalmist said, “Your word I have hidden in my heart that I might not sin against You” (Psalm 119:9-11). 
God has given us the ability to defeat Satan.  We have to arm ourselves for battle and vehemently fight the foe every day.  May God help us to truly overcome the enemy (Rev. 2:10).
