Spiritual Warfare: 'Satan and His Agents Can Be in Disguise'

God's Power for Our Battles — Wednesday, July 20, 2022

But I am not surprised! Even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. So it is no wonder that his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness. In the end they will get the punishment their wicked deeds deserve.
— 2 Corinthians 11:14-15 NLT

Today's Prayer

Lord, help me to know Your Word so well that I’m not surprised when the enemy comes in some clever disguise. Remind me that evil beings and evil people can sound and look like they are actually good. I know they will get what they deserve in the end, but I want to make sure that I’m not connected with any of them in any way when that day finally comes. Help me to separate myself from these evil folks and their evil ways so I can please You in every possible way. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
