The Upward Look
by Max D. Hutto,
“in which you formerly walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, of the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience.” Ephesians 2:2 NASB
Evil spiritual beings are the second of three major forces that influence and drive a person’s sinful lifestyle. These demonic beings are ruled by Satan, the prince of the power of the air and the father of lies and deceit. Never underestimate the powerful influence of evil to twist the truth, manipulating people to believe a lie is true. Evil masterfully counterfeits religious activities and worship that deceive many people into thinking they are righteous and following God while being blatantly disobedient.
Lord Jesus, I must rely on Your might to protect me from evil. Fill my life with the truths of Your Word so I may obey and honor You.
