Crush

Scripture

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

Observation

Satan had risen his head up through dissension in the church and distortion of the gospel. Paul reveals hope that the God of peace will crush the head of Satan under their feet. 

Application

After the fall, God cursed Satan and it is revealed in Genesis 3:15, “I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring; he shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel.”  Satans injury to the people of God is only temporary but the blow to the head of Satan will be fatal. This final blow will come with the second coming of Christ when Satan is finally defeated. 

Prayer

Lord may we keep our hope in you.  We know the trials we face will result in temporary injuries but we place our hope in our eternal redeemer and deliverer, Jesus Christ.
