Hope Beyond the Battle: Standing Nose-to-Nose with the Adversary

By Charles R. Swindoll


1 Peter 5:8–11

A great deal of information about our adversary, the Devil, is being communicated these days. Much of it is erroneous, some of it is “spooky” and superstitious, and a little of it is reliable. Few subjects arouse the public’s curiosity more than this one, which creates an atmosphere of gullibility. Nothing could please the enemy of our souls more! Without question, his presence and strategy, purpose and destiny are clouded by so much misinformation that he operates without much resistance at all. God never intended for His people to live in ignorance or fear of Satan . . . yet many do. This explains why we are so grateful for passages such as this one, where the aging apostle Peter wrote words of truth for all to read. Because they have to do with our age-old adversary, the Devil, we would do well to hear and heed the counsel.
