I had to shorten the question for the title of this podcast. The complete question was, “Would you please explain this dilemma: The closer I am to the Father and the more I serve Him, the harder the devil attacks?” Does the devil attack when believers are trying to draw closer to God?

Here are some thoughts before you listen: While some overemphasize the work of the devil and blame him for all temptations and sins, others minimize his impact to the endangerment of their spiritual walk. Both are mistake.


The devil does attack and the Bible both cautions and instructs us on how to be prepared for when this happens.


The Bible says, “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour” (1 Peter 5:8 KJV).


Praise God we are not powerless against the adversary. In fact, the Bible promises, “The angel of Jehovah encampeth round about them that fear him, And delivereth them” (Psalm 34:7, ASV).


Scripture also says, “Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world” (1 John 4:4 KJV).


Have you ever felt like you were under attack from the devil?
