What immeasurable comfort to know we are not left on our own to ward off Satan’s blows to our conscience. Is he clever? Your God is more so, who can safely lead you through the devil’s labyrinth right back to Himself!

1. God uses Satan’s own schemes to make His saints wise.

With them He unmasks the devil and exposes the children of Beelzebub, those offspring of the enemy who show the same craft as their infernal father in vexing the spirits of the saints. These are some of the ‘children of Satan’ whom Satan sends out to molest a saints peace.

Those who dig up the saints old sins, which God has forgiven and forgotten, merely to grieve His spirit and muddy His name; these show their devilish malice indeed, who take such pains to travel many years back to find a handful of dirt to throw on the saints face. Thus Shimei taunted David, ‘Come out, thou bloody man’ (2 Sam. 16:7). When you meet such reproaches, answer them as the French theologian Beza did those who, for lack of better ammunition, charged him for some impious poems he penned in his youth. ‘These men,’ he said, ‘begrudge me the pardoning mercy of God.’

There are also those who lie in wait for the saint to stumble, then point out every faltering step to make him seem graceless, and themselves graceful by comparison. Such pawns of the devil bring a curse upon themselves, although they think little of it. Consider Amalek, the remembrance of whose name God threatened to blot out from under heaven (Deut. 25:19). Do you recall what he did to deserve Gods wrath? He had his soldiers slay those at the rear of Moses’ company who were feeble and could not keep up with the rest! We can hardly imagine a greater cruelty, yet in God’s sight it is even worse to smite with the edge of a mocking tongue the feeble in grace.
Some wicked men sin with the evil purpose of troubling the saints spirit.

Perhaps you have watched a blasphemer in action. When he discovers there are those who love the Lord and cannot bear to hear His name taken in vain, he deliberately uses foul language the grates on chaste ears and troubles the sensitive spirits of his listeners. This rascal strikes Father and child at one blow. He thinks dishonoring God is not enough, but insists that the saint stand by to see and hear the wrong done to their heavenly Father.

Perhaps worst of all are those who
blame a child of God for the consequences of their own sins. This is why Ahab called the prophet ‘the troubler of Israel’ when it was really himself and his fathers house who were the blame. What grief to Moses’ spirit for the Israelites to lay at his door the blood of those who died in the wilderness. God, Himself, can testify Moses was their constant bail when at any time His hand was raised to destroy them.

The finest of God’s servants in this crooked generation of ours lie under the same curse. ‘We may thank them,’ say the profane, ‘for all the miseries of our nation; we were doing fine until they tried to reform us.’ Do not blame the good medicine that was administered, but the corrupt body of the nation that could not keep it down!!

    Hi would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working
    with? I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time
    choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reasoon I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs
    and I’m looking for something unique. P.S Apologies for being off-topic
    but I had to ask!

      I work with WordPress and have had the same layout since I started. I wish I could speak more diversely about the other blog sites you mentioned but Words press came so highly recommended when I was looking to start mine and I found it easy to work with so I just stayed there and have been there since 🙂
      I blog mostly from my smart phone (Samsung G4) and love it!
      Hope this helps in any way and blessings to you. How you start your blog soon and find it energizing! Let me know where ya land and I’ll check your blog out. 🙂

    Looks like this is going to be a great series. Thanks for sharing. The idea that the Lord allows Satan to work to reveal his true character and those that are followers of him, is a very Scriptural principle that, many times, gets overlooked. Lord bless you.
