He calls your name

leaning back 10a

The devil knows
your name but calls you
by your sin.
God knows your sin
but calls you
by your name.

–Ricardo Sanchez

Satan opposes love

They that know anything in this world
know that, as the first great opposition of hell,
the world, and corrupt nature, is against
faith to God by Christ, so the next
great opposition made against us,
is against our love.

—John Owen
(1616 – 1683)

He gets the last word

Keep a cool head. Stay alert. The Devil is poised to pounce, and would like nothing better than to catch you napping. Keep your guard up. You’re not the only ones plunged into these hard times. It’s the same with Christians all over the world. So keep a firm grip on the faith. The suffering won’t last forever. It won’t be long before this generous God who has great plans for us in Christ—eternal and glorious plans they are!—will have you put together and on your feet for good. He gets the last word; yes, he does.

–1 Peter 5:8-11 (The Message)
