How Is God Defeating Satan?: A 5-Day Devotional
This article is part of the ESV.org Reading Plans series.
God Is Sovereign over Satan
If God is sovereign over the whole world, even over Satan, why would he allow Satan to do so much harm and cause so much heartache? John Piper explains four ways God is defeating Satan by allowing Satan to deceive, influence, and tempt—for now.
John Piper brings a lifetime of theology, Bible meditation, and pastoral ministry to bear on the doctrine of God’s providence, showing how God’s all-pervasive governing of all things glorifies Christ, and is spectacularly good news for those who trust him.
Over the course of five days, be encouraged by God’s ultimate power over Satan in this devotional adaptation from John Piper’s book, Providence. Start the devotional today!
