Daily devotional: All out war

Scripture
And the dragon was angry at the woman and declared war against the rest of her children--all who keep God's commandments and maintain their testimony for Jesus.
Revelation 12:17 NLT

Observation
Jesus has won the victory, but Satan's final punishment has not yet come. In the mean time, he wants to do everything he can to cause Jesus' followers to fall away, be discredited, or otherwise be ineffective.

Application
We must remain cognizant that Satan has waged all out war against us. He will seek whatever methods are most effective against us. Trust in God and pray. Remain faithful and endure (Revelation 13:10).

Prayer
Lord, I love you. Thank you that the war is won! Please protect me from Satan and his fallen angels. Help me to discern when there is spiritual battle at work and call in reinforcements from You so that there will be no falling away, discrediting, or ineffectiveness. Please keep Your angels surrounding us and hold us underneath the shadow of Your wings.
