Satan Is Defeated 3

1 Peter 5:8: Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
It does not always look to us like Satan is defeated, but he is. We need to remember always that God is more powerful than Satan. God is the Creator and Satan is a created being. We need to remember how God keeps Satan on a leash here on earth and how we are to battle Satan. God protects His children from Satan*s harmful devices.
