True Perspective 3

"You have already won the victory.  You have already overcome any outcome that satan could bring – by trusting God and placing your faith in Jesus Christ.  Don’t think for one minute that satan has won anything because someone is sick or someone has died or you are out of money, so satan wins.  It is not true.  satan doesn’t win against believers in Christ.  he hasn’t taken away anything that is rightfully yours.  he is a liar and wants you to believe he has. 

Note: "he hasn’t taken away anything that is rightfully yours." It is easy to forget that the real battle is a spiritual battle and that we are stewards and not owners of things on this side of heaven. Remember this and you will increase in wisdom. Many things that once were troubling will take on a whole new perspective. 

Your faith has sealed you.  Your children are safe in the hands of God. 

Ephesians 1:13-14 “In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the Word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise.V14 Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of His glory.”

Let’s get it right.  God says that He is to be feared.
satan is to be refused.
God says He is to be praised and worshipped for He is High and Holy.
Satan is to be resisted.

True perspective:
God is in control.
Satan is out of control."
