Protection from Evil

But the Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen you and protect you from the evil one. (2 Thessalonians 3:3)

We must cling to many promises in the Word of God. One of those promises is that the Lord will guard you from the evil one and protect you. When the winds of adversity and temptation come into your life, God will be faithful. He has given you everything you need to endure and deal with whatever you are walking through, even when you have to experience some really challenging, tough times. God has equipped you to stand against the winds, schemes, and temptations of the evil one.

Satan himself might bring things to your heart and life, but God wants you to endure these things. God wants you to be faithful. Because He has given you everything you need, He wants you to be victorious.

You might say, “I don't feel like I have everything.” It's not about how you feel; it’s about what God says. There used to be a bumper sticker that said, “God said it. I believe it. That settles it.” This is the way it should read, “God said it. That settles it.” You and I need to understand that even when we have a difficult time believing, He is still faithful to deliver us and empower us to live for Him.

Don’t lose heart, even when you are weary and discouraged. Don’t lose faith, even when you are feeling hopeless and alone. The Lord is always with you, and He definitely will protect you from whatever the enemy throws at you.
