Lord, it seems like our world is going from bad to worse.
It's all downhill!
We wonder, "Can things be turned around?"
We watch the news. We read the papers.
It seems like there's nothing else but bad news - bad news that's getting worse all the time.
Is there any Good News, Lord?
Do You have an answer to our question?
Lord, You hear our question - and You answer it with a question of Your own: Are you listening to Me - or has My voice been drowned out by all the other voices that are shouting at you all the time?
Lord, it seems like the voice of Satan is never silent.
He's trying so hard to make us think that he's more powerful than he really is.
The devil is a determined enemy.
We thank You, Lord, that he's also a defeated enemy: "the reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil's work" (1 John 3:8).
"The devil's work"? What about the devil himself?
There is no escape for Him.
The destruction of the devil - This is why Your Son died.
He died to "destroy him who holds the power of death - that is the devil" (Hebrews 2:14).
When Your Son, Jesus, died for us, He won the decisive victory over Satan.
No matter how hard Satan may try to turn things around, He will never change the final outcome.
The final victory is still to come - but it will come!
Lord, we look forward to the Day when the devil's defeat will be complete (Revelation 20:10).
We look forward to the Day when all Your people will say, "Hallelujah! For our Lord God Almighty reigns. Let us rejoice and give Him glory!" (Revelation 19:6-7).
