You Can’t Kill The Devil, But You Can Resist Him

S. O. A. P.

Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!


Matthew 4:11

Then the devil left him, and angels came and attended him.


This is the end of the story of when Jesus faced off with satan in the wilderness. To begin His ministry, the Holy Spirit has led the Lord into the wilderness for a time of fasting and testing by the enemy. Three different times the devil tempted Jesus, and three different times Jesus resisted him with the Word of God. Finally the devil gave up and left Him, and angels from on high came and ministered to Jesus.


I’m blessed to have sons who serve with me in the ministry. Quite often on a Saturday night I’ve sent them each a text letting them know I’m praying for them and I close it off with PS. “Let’s kill the devil tomorrow.” By that I mean let’s bring the Word in such a powerful fashion that the enemy will turn and leave us for another day and another time. The truth is, “You Can’t Kill The Devil, But You Can Resist Him.” That’s exactly what Jesus did in this passage. Jesus was so full of the Word, since He is the Word, that all during this particular test He referenced Old Testament scripture. The Word is always our weapon against the forces of hell, and it’s NO SECRET. So the question is, why don’t we use it more often? That’s what Jesus used to send the devil reeling thousands of years ago, and that’s still our weapon today. “You Can’t Kill The Devil, But You Can Resist Him!”


Dear Jesus,

Your Word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my pathway. I promise to use it today! Amen
