Not Too Bright

24 Jan

Many people wrongly assume that the devil is all-powerful and all-knowing. Functionally, they believe that Satan is more faithful than God! They aren’t sure if the Lord will answer their prayer, even if they do everything just right. But they’re absolutely convinced that the devil will devour them if they do even one little thing wrong. They think the devil is always there and never misses a trick… We give the devil too much credit…

It’s very possible that the devil missed it in Daniel 9. Perhaps he was out licking his wounds, sulking and pouting, and misjudged how dangerous Daniel was. Maybe Satan was on vacation. Maybe he was tired and sleeping. We give the devil too much recognition. Anyone who fights against God sure isn’t bright.
