Conquest to Victory (Spurgeon’s Faith’s Checkbook)

02 Jan

From Charles Spurgeon’s “Faith’s Checkbook”
Conquest to Victory
January 2
And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. (Romans 16:20)

This promise follows well upon that of yesterday. We are evidently to be conformed to our covenant Head, not only in His being bruised in His heel but in His conquest of the evil one. Even under our feet is the old dragon to be bruised. The Roman believers were grieved with strife in the church; but their God was “the God of peace” and gave them rest of soul. The archenemy tripped up the feet of the unwary and deceived the hearts of the simple; but he was to get the worst of it and to be trodden down by those whom he had troubled. This victory would not come to the people of God through their own skill or power; but God Himself would bruise Satan. Though it would be under their feet, yet the bruising would be of the Lord alone.
Let us bravely tread upon the tempter! Not only inferior spirits but the prince of darkness himself must go down before us. In unquestioning confidence in God let us look for speedy victory. “Shortly.” Happy word! Shortly we shall set our foot on the old serpent! What a joy to crush evil! What dishonor to Satan to have his head bruised by human feet! Let us by faith in Jesus tread the tempter down.

    I am reblogging this for a very special reason. I had read a blog last night about choosing a word to exemplify what I would like in my life in 2014 and I chose the word ‘victory’. Then today I read another blogger writing about the very same thing and I told her what my word was. The very next blog I read is this one. You will understand when you read it why it meant so much to me. I really believe based on the content of it, that I was meant to read it and to believe …. and that it is truly a message meant for me (and others of course)…… Diane

    Bonita, I have to tell you reading this today blew my mind…. I had just told another blogger that the word I chose for 2014 to exemplify what I would like in my life was the word ‘victory’ and the very next blog I read is yours’. You have no idea what this means to me because I do believe it is God’s message for me….. Diane
