Don’t underestimate the mode of operation of Satan. The enemy does plant seeds of doubt through speaking to you in your thoughts. The devil does tempt you. The dragon does show you images in your head to deceive you. The evil one does mislead you. Satan does cause you to go astray. Lucifer does speak to you and tell you lies.
Now, do we have power over the enemy? Yes we do. Do we have a choice as to whether or not to believe Satan’s lies? Absolutely. But one of the most powerful weapons for us in our struggle against principalities is to know how the enemy operates. Yes, we have already defeated the devil but not through underestimating his craftiness. The enemy has been exposed. Go forth and win your battles today. Dr.J.
