God Is On Our Side and Fights Our Battles For Us

God Is On Our Side and Fights Our Battles For Us

 Colossians 2:15 (NKJV)

 “Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.”

 Most, if not all of you, have seen pictures of slaves shackled and chained. And no doubt your heart went out to them.

Now, imagine Lucifer bound in chains, tattered, bleeding, and defeated ambling behind Jesus and his entourage when Christ arose from the grave. He was humiliated, embarrassed, and the ‘pride’ had been knocked out of him.

Jesus disarmed Satan, his principalities, powers, and deceptions. He publicly displayed the Devil as the loser and Himself as the victor as he strolled through heaven announcing His victory, making a public spectacle of Satan, then sitting down at the right-hand side of God.

I also think of Haman’s embarrassment when he had to go through the city hailing, “This is what is done for the man the king delights to honor!” for Mordecai, his archenemy. Haman’s pride and Satan’s deception made Haman assume the king wanted to honor him.

He was shocked when it was Mordecai the king wished to honor.

So Haman got the robe and the horse. He robed Mordecai, and led him on horseback through the city streets, proclaiming before him, “This is what is done for the man the king delights to honor!” Esther 6:11 (NIV)

Just as Jesus openly humiliated Satan after his resurrection, God publicly humbled Haman in front of his family and friends.

God is on our side and fights our battles for us.

We are victors!

We are not victims.

Satan has already been defeated!

So the next time the Devil tries to harass, intimidate, or corrupt you, remember that you can resist him if you are submitted to God!

The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still.” Exodus 14:14 (NIV)
