Defeating Satan with Music and Power
Finishing a good book, armed by my holy discontent, listening to music, and fueled with ideas and a passion to blog I logged into WordPress with music from a YouTube playlist in the background. Wouldn’t you know this is the time Satan likes to attack. When you’re on fire for God, he takes it as a sign to attack. He kept giving me errors on YouTube and greatly frustrated me. On came the headache, then the mouth ache and fatigue.
At this point knowing it was Satan and that we as believers have the power and authority to defeat him, I took some Tylenol, ate a snack, and turned to God. Turning on the YouTube playlist I run with, also great music for when you’re feeling down, a new idea came to mind, “why not share a line from most of these songs in a post? If they can help me, they would probably help others too.” So still defeating the enemy myself I started putting in lines from the songs, and the more I focused on God and these truths the better I felt. The spirit is raised and Satan began to go down.
Yes there may still be evidence that he is there but once you choose to stand strong and defeat him he starts loosing. Here are lines from several songs that may help you if you are feeling down or defeated. Read them, believe them, and listen to them on the playlist if you’d like. You can overcome him, don’t let him defeat you. With Christ on your side you can win.
