Remember the garden of Eden? How did Satan go after Eve? "Did God say.....?" He questioned the Word of God. He did the same thing when he tempted Jesus in the wilderness. If Jesus had done what Satan asked: throw himself off a building, bow to Satan, he would have been essentially saying I don't trust God to do what He says He's going to do. He would have been denying God's Word.
What about you? How does Satan attack the Word in you. Perhaps by telling you you're worthless, telling you you'll never find that special someone, your children will never return to the Lord, you'll never do anything important, you're weird and weak, and nobody really loves you. All attacking what God says about you.
We can see in each case, how Satan attacks the Word.
- Cares of this world
- Deceitfulness of riches
- Lust for other things
And don't worry about that old guy with horns. There's nothing he can do to harm good soil!
