The old devil is slick, so we better watch out. That slickness is disguised in Satan’s deceit. He is the father of lies, the prince of dung and is out to rob, kill and destroy us…and we need to get that into the front of our heads!
There is the world, the flesh and the devil, but the devil is the one who misuses the other two and takes advantage of all their inherent weaknesses to make US weaker.
Our example is Jesus; who resisted every attempt of Satan to tempt Him. Sadly, far too many followers of Christ have given in to the temptations of having power and control. They give in and end up in false doctrines and sin.
So let Satan grasp at “air”—you stick to the solid, immovable, pure and glorious power of God to combat that world, flesh and devil. Endure the fire…it’s producing pure gold!
