[The Glory Unveiled]
Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices. ( 2 Corinthians 2:11 )
Ignorance is a powerful tool in the hand of the devil. Throughout the Bible we see how the devil has been using ignorance to destroy God’s people. In Hosea 4:6, the Bible actually records that God’s people are destroyed for lack of knowledge (ignorance). An athlete can be very good and experienced but a novice will outrun him if that novice is more advantaged. What the devil seeks to do sometimes is not to stop us from praying or the things of God but to add a weight that will disadvantage us in spite of our busyness with the things of God. This is why many believers are busy about the work of God, running up and down but not effective. Ignorance of the devices of the enemy gives the devil an undue advantage. Imagine having to fight with someone whose battle strategies and ammunitions you do not know. How are you going to fight that battle successfully? Yes, it is true that we are not exactly fighting with the devil but claiming the victory of Christ for ourselves through faith in His finished works. But it is also true that ignorance of the schemes of the enemy puts one in a very compromising situation because it delays our experience of these realities we claim by faith—we would shout or sing of the truth of Jesus’ works and yet not experientially partake in it. So how do we know the devices of the enemy? The word of God exposes the devil, his lies and his schemes. So we become aware of his schemes in the word of God. Let us study the word to show ourselves approved and placed in advantage.
Prayer_Bead: Alpha and Omega, Father of all spirits, thank you for exposing the devices of the devil through your word. And by your word, let your glory be seen through me.
