I can’t think of a reason to be afraid of this guy…

This guy is Satan. I did a Google photo search for “satan pictures” – let me tell you, there is some really demonic stuff out there. I thought about posting one of them, but then I would permanently have some ugly dude with horns affixed to my awesome blog site. What a drag!

But none of it scares me. Not the slightest. Why should it? Recently I tweeted that I like to envision Satan having a shrill, high-pitched, helium-enhanced voice, rather than the dark, deep, intimidating voice that is often attributed to him. Some Facebook comments blamed THAT on Disney ;-)

A co-worker of mine seemed a little surprised when I mentioned that for the life of me I cannot think of a reason to be afraid of Satan. Or anything representing evil, for that matter. Think I’m naive?

  • God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and sound mind
  • I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil – for You (God) are with me
  • The same power that conquered the grave lives in me
  • The cross before me, the world behind me
  • Resist Satan and he will flee
  • I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me
  • Put on the full armor of God so that you can stand your ground when the day of evil comes
  • If my God is with me – whom then should I fear?
  • Sin has no power
  • Hell has no power
  • Satan has no power

So again I ask why I should fear this guy? I’m not even sure I can offer a healthy respect. Nothing has power that isn’t first yielded power. So, I yield Satan or evil no power over my life. I yield my life daily to Christ – I have no capacity then for fear. So – yeah – not even shaking in my little space boots. Not one bit.

What do you think?

  1. I think this blog is awesome #!
    I think that Satan is a lair and he needs to be put in his place more often by all those things you reminded us about.
    Way to go!
    Thanks for the reminder!!!!

  2. such a great post! I know I loose site of that a lot and give into the lies and the fear that the world throws at me. So thank you for that perspective. Amazing!

  3. Great post! Once we are in Christ, the enemy has been defeated, and he may try to tempt us, but have power? No. Be afraid of him? Not gonna happen.
