“We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not.” 1 John 5:18Text — 1 John 5: 18- 21
The devil is described as the wicked one because that is who he is. The devil does not think good of anyone as he goes around seeking whom he may devour. This is why it is very important for you to resist the devil and he will flee from you. If you are born of God, you will no more commit sin and the seed of God will remain in you.
If you are still committing sin, you are not born of God. The only way the devil can have power over you is for you to fall into sin. You can only overcome the wicked one by living a holy life, keeping yourself pure from any form of sin and defilement and allowing the word of God dwell in your heart. The power to overcome the devil is in your hand. Make up your mind to live a holy life today, so that you can have power to overcome the wicked one.
Prayer for today
Lord, give me constant victory over the wicked one.
