John 10:10—The thief (satan) does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.

There is a very real devil and His purpose is to destroy you physically, emotionally, mentally and ultimately to destroy your eternal soul!

Jesus recognized the reality of the devil! It was a very real devil that tempted Jesus in the wilderness (Luke 4:1-13). It was a very real devil who entered the Garden of Eden and deceived Adam and Eve into rebellion against the Word of God. satan is no myth!

He’s a monster whose purpose is to defy God and destroy you!

Matthew 16:23
Jesus turned and said to Peter, “Get behind me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to me; you do not have in mind the concerns of God, but merely human concerns.”


The good news is that Jesus completely defeated him and came to deliver us from the fear and bondage satan intends. For He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world and whom the Son sets free is free indeed! (1 John 4:4, John 8:36).

Romans 16:20
The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. The grace of our Lord Jesus be with you.

Thanks Gloria that is so true,it's such a nice reminder, to remember that Satan controls this world and the people in it and alot of times we are hurt by people that have turned their backs on God and that's when the devil uses them to hurt us.Sometimes I blame God for my problems and hardships but I have to remember that we live in a fallen world,I'm a sinful person and Iam weak and Satan wants to destroy me just like you said in every area of my life.He can really only do that if I take my eyes off God and live for myself.
