Last week, I made the mistake of going into the pasture to see Rosemary, my pet sheep. Our 275 pound ram, Wildcard, was in there with the ewes for breeding season and I had forgotten my husband's warning not to go in there while Wildcard was there. Sure enough, he rammed me off of my feet and I flew through the air and onto my bottom. I never saw him coming. I was loving on Rosemary and he blindsided me.
I thought later that that was what Satan does to us. We are meandering through our journey of life. Everything is coming up roses then Wham! Satan causes something to happen that knocks us off our feet. But just like Jesus protected me from broken bones, Jesus' grace covers us when Satan attacks. Jesus gives us victory over Satan because He showed us on the cross that He is greater than anything Satan ambushes us with.
"But you belong to God, my dear children. You have already won a victory over these people, BECAUSE THE SPIRIT WHO LIVES IN YOU IS GREATER THAN THE SPIRIT WHO LIVES IN THE WORLD", 1 John 4:4.
