Daily SOAP: Ignorant of Satan’s Schemes

SOAP stands for Scripture, Observation, Application and Prayer. Today’s journal comes from reading 2 Corinthians 2.

Scripture

“So that no advantage would be taken of us by Satan, for we are not ignorant of his schemes.” –2 Corinthians 2:11

Observation

Satan does take advantage of people. He is the enemy of our soul–he is no one’s friend. We are to battle him and seek his demise. To battle properly and win, we’d better be aware of his schemes and strategies.

Application

I’m afraid most people–including most Christians–don’t understand Satan’s schemes. We continually yield to temptation, divide from those who can help us, get too busy to pray, neglect God’s word, hold grudges, listen to gossip, etc–all things satan uses to take advantage of us.

Prayer

Father, thank You that I have the victory in Christ. Satan has no power to take advantage of me unless I give it to him. Help me be spiritually alert to his schemes, resist him and walk in victory over his EVERY attempt to defeat me.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
