Satan Is Crushed Under My Feet
“The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. The grace of our Lord Jesus be with you.” (Romans 16:20, NIV)
As he closes Romans in Chapter 16, Paul speaks prophetically over believers in Rome and every Christian who would ever live. He says, “The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet.” What powerful imagery in this verse. Paul refers to God as peace (shalom, prosperity, wholeness, completeness). Another translation says, “The God who gives peace ... ” Our peace will come and Satan will be crushed, pressed, squeezed and destroyed. We stand victorious over Satan.
This verse should excite and encourage every Christian. Jesus’ blood on the cross settled the battle for power between God and Satan, light and darkness, good and evil. On the cross, Jesus’ blood anointed and empowered every Christian to defeat Satan. Satan has been, and will always be defeated. It’s time for every Christian to grasp the meaning of this truth and walk it out. We are victors, conquerors, and winners, not losers. The biggest lie Satan can tell you is that he has power over you. Satan cannot make you do anything. He can talk and roar. He can try to intimidate you with an endless string of “What if …” lies. Remember you have the power within you to resist and defeat him. You must learn to say, “Discussion over! Case closed! Satan, you lose! You lost when: (1) God threw you out of heaven into the depths of hell (2) Jesus died and shed His blood for me on the cross (3) Jesus was resurrected and defeated death (4) Jesus kicked open the gates of hell; (5) Jesus ascended to the throne. Satan, you are the ultimate loser!”
Child of God, give God praise and thanksgiving today for giving you power, dominion, and authority. Thank Him that it is written “nothing can harm you.” (Luke 10:19). Do not walk in fear anymore. Find comfort in God’s promise, “Submit yourselves to God, resist the devil and he will flee from you.” (James 4:7).
Lord, thank you for Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross. Because of Your blood, Jesus, I win every battle every time and Satan is crushed under my feet. Through the blood of Jesus and in the name of Jesus I pray, amen.
