Satan and the World Are Strong. God is Stronger


Shortly after being tripped up (again) by the world, the thought occurred that the world has a LOT of tricks up its sleeves in order to drag back those who have escaped its clutches.

While considering the many tools at the world’s disposal AND the ease of opportunity with which these various allurements are presented, another thought struck.

“The world (and Satan) might be strong, but God is stronger.”

The problem lies with accessing God’s power: many times, the world’s blandishments happen very quickly–almost before the victim has a chance to think–and appealing to God for help is not thought about until AFTER a confrontation with the world.

Perhaps the suddenness with which this occurs–something akin to being ambushed–is what prompted Paul to compare being snared by sin with being brought into captivity.

“For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin. For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I. If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good. Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me. For I delight in the law of God after the inward man: But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.”
–Romans 7:14-23

The final thoughts had to do with

  1. God is so very much more stronger than the world or Satan or the flesh.  God’s power extends to every facet of life and the physical world/reality which surrounds us.
  2. Since the world, Satan and the flesh AMBUSH the unwary by utilizing human impulses, appetites and lusts, one MUST be prepared OR one will almost always lose the battle.
  3. SO, the way to win those battles is to prepare beforehand.  Ask God for help: God is stronger than any other force known to man.

It is important to prepare spiritually for one’s battles with the world before these conflicts take place–and these battles WILL happen.

God is stronger than the one the believer is struggling against.

“Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.”
–1JOHN 4:4

But the one struggling must not wait to appeal to God AFTER the struggle has already happened.

The struggling man must prepare for those struggles before they take place.

The struggling man must take advantage of God’s unlimited, great power.


Those who struggle against sin will overcome.

Those who struggle against God will lose.

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
