How to Have Victory Over Evil


Here’s a collection of scriptures that answer the question: How can we have victory over Satan? As long as we look to Christ, victory can be achieved!


Trust

We know that those who are born of God do not sin, but the one who was born of God protects them, and the evil one does not touch them (1 John 5:18).


Study His word and pray!

Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the Devil’s schemes (Ephesians 6:11)


Test the spirits!

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God; for many false prophets have gone out into the world (1 John 4:1).


Don”t get complacent!

Be sober, be watchful: your adversary the Devil, as a roaring lion, walks about, seeking whom he may devour (1 Peter 5:8).


Resist!

Be subject therefore unto God; but resist the Devil, and he will flee from you (James 4:7) .


Stand your ground!

I am writing to you, fathers, because you know Him who is from the beginning. I am writing to you, young people, because you have conquered the evil one (1 John 2:13).


Avoid temptation!

Abstain from every form of evil (1 Thessalonians 5:22).


Put on the armor!

For our struggle is not against enemies of blood and flesh, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers of this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, so that you may be able to withstand on that evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm (Ephesians 6:12,13).


Surrender to God daily and fight the fight!

For our struggle is not against enemies of blood and flesh, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers of this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, so that you may be able to withstand on that evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm (Ephesians 6:12,13).


Talk to God constantly!

Pray in the Spirit at all times in every prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert and always persevere in supplication for all the saints (Ephesians 6:18).


Whose child are you?

for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith (1 John 5:4).


The Bible gives us a way in which we can deal with the Devil. Though the Devil has been defeated, and eventually will be thrown into the lake of fire, he is still actively spreading evil. Christians need to understand who he is, and what he is able to do while he is still active. As long as we look to Christ, victory can be achieved!
