The devil knows he would lose if ever he went directly up against God.

I'm Joni Eareckson Tada. The devil knows he would lose if ever he went directly up against God. So what does our adversary do? He gets at God by needling us. And he doesn’t come out with guns blazing … He pricks at us with what the Bible calls ‘fiery darts,’ until, little by little, we find ourselves making appeasements. We become demoralized to the point where we compromise our testimony—just sinning a little bit—hoping that the devil will quit bugging us and leave us alone. But we must remain focused against the devil! And we do that by taking faith. Ephesians chapter 6 tells us to "Take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one." Withstand that trial by taking hold of God’s Word. Repel those dark thoughts with songs of praise. And resist all temptation with prayer. Christian, take faith and fight the enemy!
