God has a message for you today and these Bible verses about the devil come with both a warning and a promise. The Bible tells us of the threat of false apostles doing the work of Satan but also of Gods protection granted to us and the shield of God that can cover us in safety.
The Devil wants to kill true believers. He wants to destroy you. He will use every possible means of reaching you and sometimes this means working through others. He will send others into your life or temptation into your path to mislead you from the path of God and his teachings.
Ignoring the words of God invites the Devil into your life.
If you suspect the work of the Devil in your life, perhaps offer God a prayer for protection against evil spirits to drive them from your life.

So that we would not be outwitted by Satan; for we are not ignorant of his designs.
Those who walk blindly through life will stumble into his trap, but those who know of the work of the Devil and counter it with the love and teachings found in Christ will be saved.
