lest Satan should take advantage of us; for we are not ignorant of his devices.
II Corinthians 2:11
Paul urges believers not to be ignorant of Satan’s schemes. He highlights the importance of spiritual awareness. By understanding the adversary’s tactics, we equip ourselves to stand firm in the face of spiritual challenges.
We must acknowledge the significance of spiritual discernment. Just as a soldier studies his enemy’s tactics to win a battle, we too must be vigilant in comprehending the schemes of the evil one.
Through prayer, scripture, and a vigilant spirit, we can cultivate a discerning heart. The Holy Spirit equips us to navigate life’s twists and turns with wisdom. When we put in the whole armor of God and walk confidently in the light of His truth, we will be protected from the deceptions that seek to undermine our faith.
Stay grounded in the truth and don’t listen to the lies of the enemy. Surround yourself with godly people who will encourage you to strengthen your faith.
Lord, I come before You in humility, seeking the wisdom to discern the schemes of my enemy. Give me a spirit of discernment that allows me to recognize the tactics aimed at leading me away from Your truth. Strengthen my spiritual senses through prayer and the study of Your Word. In Jesus’ name, amen.
