When We Waltz with Jesus Instead of Dancing with the Devil

Satan hovers like a vulture waiting for a day that will never happen.

And my Lord enfolds and envelops.

To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.
Acts 26:18

You have been crushed by the heel of Jesus and His scarred hand holds the key that will imprison you forever.

And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
Revelation 20:10

One day you will be bruised under my feet as you are already under that of my Saviour,

The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. The grace of our Lord Jesus be with you.
Romans 16:20

 and you will no longer be allowed to attack me.

But until then -

I will never belong to you. 

I may fall to weakness and the joys of flesh and sinful mind

 No wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.
2 Corinthians 11:14

The Lord said to Satan, "From where do you come?" Then Satan answered the Lord and said, " From roaming about the earth and walking around in it."
Job 1:7 

but

 You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.
1 John 4:4

I will never belong to you.

So true and yet this truth makes it so much harder when I realize that I am living like I do belong to him rather than to Jesus.

Thank you for the reminder.
