Remaining Steadfast in Faith

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world. But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you. – 1 Peter 5:8-10

We resist satan by remaining steadfast in faith. Our faith does not waver based on circumstances, but remains constant through all unexpected trials. Our adversary sends fiery darts our way to tempt us to doubt God’s promises. To be stable in what we believe, regardless of the feelings, hurts, and pains we all experience from time to time, is a mighty weapon.

Christ’s victory on the cross defeated the devil. We do not re-defeat the enemy; we release and re-enforce what Christ has already accomplished. When we run to the Lord, our adversary must flee. Our enemy’s plan is to drive us away from the Lord, but instead, our steadfastness in Him increases.

We confront the enemy and take authority over his destructive ways in the name of Jesus. Our faith rebukes fear. Standing immovable in our faith drives the enemy away from our place of victory. We are more than conquerors in Christ Jesus. We are champions because of the greater One who lives in us, from glory to glory
