weary him with rejoicing

IMG_0169Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and satan also came among them. And the Lord said to satan, “from where do you come?”  So satan answered the Lord and said, “From going to and fro on the earth and from walking back and forth on it.” Job 1:6-7

He is sly, is he not? This wandering vagabond of trouble…..


“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.” 1 Peter 5:8

He is diligent, is he not? This prowling, hungry monster…..


Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.  Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.  Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.  Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness and having shod you feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; praying always with prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end…. Ephesians 6:10-18a

He has power, does he not? This evil spirit of wickedness who rules in darkness….


And we have read about him….

And we have been warned about him….

And we have been instructed on how to arm ourselves against him…..

And yet we fail to understand the power we have been given over him…..

“There is a place in the Spirit set aside for you where you can make the enemy tired, weary, discouraged, depressed, requiring therapy. There is a place set aside for you where you weary him with your rejoicing. You confuse him by your grace. There is a place set aside for you in Christ where you get to overcome. Beloved, we have to get there more quickly. We have to get into that place strongly.” – Graham Cooke  Favor series Disc 8

Now let’s get busy making him weary….


“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace.

In this world you will have trouble.  But take heart, I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
