I’m not asking you to take them out of the world, but to keep them safe from Satan’s power. (John 17:15 TLB)
Jesus, prayed to our Father, that we would be safe in the world. He asked the Father, to give us special protection from Satan. Satan hates the Father, and He hates Christ, he also hates us because of our love for Jesus Christ. He tries to prevent us from leading people out of the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of light. He puts obstacles in our way trying to prevent us from spreading the Good News of Christ. He wants to extinguish our light. But Jesus answered our prayer. He has overcome the devil and his kingdom. Satan does not have the power to remove us from the Father’s loving hand. Jesus, has taught us to pray through the Holy Spirit of God asking Him to keep us from the paths of temptation and to deliver us from the Evil One. We must pray as Jesus has taught us to pray, not merely to mouth the words, but by praying thoughtful praying each thought. Our Father will answer the prayer of our hearts and He will lead us into paths of righteousness. He will deliver us daily from the path and the power of the Evil One as we lean, depend, and put our trust in Him.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the special protection that You have given to me, and for keeping me safe from Satan’s power. Thank You for showing me that Satan hates me because of my love for Jesus Christ. Satan tries to prevent me from leading people out of the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of light, by placing obstacles in my way. Praise God, Jesus has won the victory on the Cross through the shed Blood of Christ. Nothing on this earth can deter Him from achieving His purpose and plan. Amen.
