Text of the Day







 Your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about,

seeking whom he may devour: whom resist steadfast in the faith—

1. Pet. 5:8,9.


 This thought of Satan’s opposition to us and that we are contending not merely with flesh and blood but with principalities and powers and wicked spirits in high positions of power, would be appalling to us did we not on the other hand realize that by positiveness of decision we acquire great helps and assistances by other unseen powers. From that moment of our positive resistance of temptation and positive standing up for the Lord and His cause, we become stronger in the Lord and in the power of His might, and greater is He that is for us than all that be against us.... Hesitancy after the wrong is seen increases the power of the temptation.
