This is how we overcome

And Moses said to the people, "Fear not, stand firm, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will work for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall never see again."
In the Scriptures you and I are told that Satan is defeated! This is an incredibly important truth for us to grasp and understand. But I also want you to see how he is defeated.
Do you remember what happened when Moses and the children of Israel were leaving Egypt? The army of Pharaoh was advancing upon them and they were between a rock and a hard place… between the Egyptian army and the Red Sea. The Israelites were terrified!
But God said through Moses, "Fear not! Stand firm and see the salvation of the Lord!" God opened the sea so the Hebrews could cross over, and then he swallowed up Pharaoh's army in the Red Sea.
Now here's what you need to know. In Scripture, Pharaoh is not only a literal historic person, he is also an illustration of Satan and how he operates in the world. But here's what you must see. Satan is defeated! The powers of darkness are destroyed in the name of Jesus and in the power of his blood!
So when you are in a difficult place, don't start trying to fix everything. Take a stand of faith, don't be afraid, and see the salvation of God!
SATAN IS DEFEATED!
OUR THANKS TO YOU!
Do the words rested... peaceful... and refreshed describe you today? Or do the words stressed... rushed... and pressured better describe your way of life?
If you're like most Christians, you'd probably have to admit those last three words more accurately describe your life most of the time!
The good news is that it doesn't have to be this way... even when your life is one big pressure-cooker. And in my new book, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out, I'll show you why.
Based on the principles from Paul's letter to the Philippians and Psalm 23, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out will help you find true peace and rest in a world that is anything but peaceful and restful. It's the perfect "pause" button you need!
So please request your copy of Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out when you give online today! --Jack Graham
