Giving Too Much Credit to Satan
As Ellen White puts it.
There are Christians who think and speak altogether too much about the power of Satan. They think of their adversary, they pray about him, they talk about him, and he looms up greater and greater in their imagination. It is true that Satan is a powerful being; but, thank God, we have a mighty Saviour, who cast out the evil one from heaven. Satan is pleased when we magnify his power. Why not talk of Jesus? Why not magnify His power and His love?
- Ellen White, The Desire of Ages, p. 493
Satan is a defeated foe.
Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
- James 4:7 (KJV)
And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.
- Romans 16:20 (KJV)
I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
- Philippians 4:13 (KJV)
But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
- 1 Corinthians 15:57 (KJV)
