The Devises of Satan: Temptation of Pride

How to Detect and Defeat the Devices of the Devil

“The shamelessness of great pride: it lifts the crown from the cushion and places it upon its brow with its own hands.”

Dag Hammarskjold

Not only does the Bible reveal there is an Invisible War, it also reveals the tactics of the enemy. “lest Satan should take advantage of us; for we are not ignorant of his devices” (2 Corinthians 2:11). In the Old Testament we see four examples and four devices used against God’s people. In this lesson we see how Satan incited David to number the people and the terrible aftermath of consequences. But we also learn that faith in God and His divine plan and protection is the victory against our enemy. AUDIO | TEXT PDF
