Back in September I wrote about verses that help me battle satanic thoughts. I read it recently and realized I never followed up on it. When Jesus battled satan He quoted the Scriptures. By trusting His Father and the authority of His Word He defeated the lies of the devil.
I think satan’s favorite pastime is to condemn me. He makes it sound as if everything I do or say has evil intent. He twists my words, or the interpretation of those words, to mean something I did not intend for them to mean. The result is I feel guilty and condemned for something I haven’t done.
Or, satan stirs up guilt over something I have done. Satan reminds me of a time that I followed him and condemns me for what I did. The result is I feel guilty and condemned for something I have done.
The following are some of the verses that help me:
There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.Romans 8:1 NKJV
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.2 Corinthians 5:17, NKJV
…who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness—by whose stripes you were healed.1 Peter 2:24 NKJV
As far as the east is from the west, So far has He removed our transgressions from us.Psalm 103:12, KJV
Jesus has done it all for us. He has conquered sin, death and hell and made us His righteousness. He will fight our battles with satan. He will bring to mind verses you have read that can make satan’s lies tell the truth. But we must know His Word the Bible. We must hide His Word in our hearts (memorize helpful passages of the Bible). And, we must trust and obey Him.
