Vital Signs - Sunday, April 19, 2020


We all get stuck sometimes. Stuck in cyclical patterns of discouragement and disillusionment. Oftentimes, we keep going in the same toxic pattern, making the same poor decisions that lead to the same unfortunate outcomes.


Did you know that our spiritual enemy loves this? He is absolutely hoping that we’ll stay in a place that is not only far from God but one where we doubt the goodness of our God.


The Bible calls the devil the father of lies. He isn’t called the father of divorce or hatred or fear. He is the father of lies. He can’t not lie for it is his native language. There is never an ounce of truth that departs from him or any of the demons he sends on harassing assignments. But don’t let that alarm you. Because…


Greater is he who is in you than he who is in the world.


Let that sink in.


The God of the universe resides in you as a Christ follower, and He is greater than our spiritual adversary. Yes, our enemy seeks to wreak havoc in our lives. Yes, he wants to steer us away from following God. Yes, he wants us to feel defeated so we will live in shame.


But he does not have the final say. God does.


This doesn’t mean the devil won’t still come after you to convince you to live for yourself. He will. What it does mean is that he has no hold on you. And the more you spend time relishing in God’s truth within the pages of the Bible, the more you’ll see the devil for who he really is—a measly pest that can be swatted away with God’s holy Word.


The devil wants to strike fear in you and make you feel unsafe. That could not be further from the truth. Because of what God has done and will continue to do in your life, you are safe from the evil one. Stand on that truth.



“You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.”

‭‭I John‬ ‭4:4‬ ‭NKJV‬‬
