Just A Thought – September 28September 28, 2018
“Therefore we wanted to come to you—even I, Paul, time and again—but Satan hindered us” (1 Thessalonians 2:18 NKJV). We don’t talk about Satan much in grace circles, and that is as it should be because he is a defeated foe. He has no power over us that we don’t give him. Yet he isn’t vanquished to the lake of fire yet and he is still active and roaring. Even Paul said that Satan hindered him from going to see the Thessalonians.
I think Satan is still hindering people from accomplishing things they desire to do. The word “hinder” means to impede by breaking up the road or by putting obstacles in the path. If you seem to be struggling with one obstacle after another, it might be our archenemy impeding your progress. It might be time to remind him of his status. Jesus just simply said, “Get behind me Satan.” Remove the obstacles by knowing your authority.
