We Win

I have some news.  We win.  You need not fear unjust judgement, shame and guilt.  Your accuser -- the one who whispers to you lies about how you're no good, not strong, unworthy, weak, stupid -- he has been defeated.  He will be thrown down.

Revelation 12:10 says, "'It has happened at last -- the salvation and power and kingdom of or God, and the authority of his Christ [the deliverer, liberator]!  For the Accuser [i.e. Satan] has been thrown down to earth -- the one who accused our brothers and sisters before God day and night.  And they have defeated him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of their testimony.  And they were not afraid to die.'"

Therefore, as James 4:7 promises, "Submit to God.  Resist the Devil, and he will flee."

We win.  We are free from those accusations and lies.  Because of God's loving-kindness, we win.

The LORD who created you says: "Fear not for I have redeemed you.  I have summoned you by name; you are mine."  -- Isaiah 43:1
