Blame the Devil? When bad things happen, where should we look? Do we need a fall guy or even the devil to blame? Christians are, for the most part, very “devil conscious.” We often fall back on the comforting thought that the “devil made me do it” and God shouldn’t blame us for his power over us.
Think about it. The problem with that way of thinking is that we stay focused on the devil and miss our opportunity to look past him at the one power that overcomes him easily, Christ.
God’s Word tells us: Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. (1 Peter 3: 13).
Instead of thinking on Satan’s power, try focusing on Christ’s strength. The devil’s power comes to no harm and there’s no need of looking over your shoulder for where he may be hiding. He’s just a fall guy for our own inability to cope with temptation.When we think on Christ we break Satan’s heart and all of his power.
“I pray today in Jesus name that we refrain from looking over our shoulder to blame the Devil as a fall guy for our inability to cope with temptation. We need to think on Christ to break Satan’s heart and his power.” Amen!
