The Unrivaled, Unbeatable, Unequaled Strategist

“You meant to hurt me, but God turned your evil into good…” (Gen. 50:20, NCV)

Does it sometimes seem like the attacks of the enemy are nonstop? Not a one of them takes our God by surprise. He saw every one of them before the world even began, and He planned ahead for each. This is why no weapon formed against you could possibly prosper.

Have you ever played chess with a computer? A PC is a daunting opponent to take on because of how intricately and far ahead it can calculate strategy. No matter how you maneuver your pieces, the computer has pre-planned a veritable plethora of ways to defeat any potential move you might make.

Our fiercely loyal Advocate is infinitely more savvy than the most brilliant computer. There’s absolutely no comparison; there’s simply no way the devil can win. No matter what move the adversary might try against you, Jesus has worked out for you the perfect path to stunning victory. What comfort you can draw from understanding that the Unbeatable Heavenly Strategist is in charge of all your battles! You win. Every time!

“Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God!
How unsearchable his judgments,
and his paths beyond tracing out!
For from him and through him and to him are all things.
To him be the glory forever! Amen.”
(Rom. 11:33, 36; NIV)


Do you have an experience you can recount of God turning something the devil brought against you, into something amazingly good? I’d love to hear about it in the comments!

  1. Thanks for this, Jennifer. I have felt the attack heating up around me lately as I step into some areas where God is calling me and opening doors. It seems every time I say yes to God in a new area, a host of insecurities, accusations and obstacles are flung my way. Sometimes it’s hard to detect where it is coming from!
    I have been realizing that TRULY, the enemy prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour, but I am the one who can deny that permission to devour! In the Name of Jesus, The enemy must leave. I remember hearing that one strategy when you feel pummeled by the enemy is to “act in the opposite spirit.” So if I’m being tempted to be puffed up and proud–empty myself and submit my life to God. and the authorities He has placed there. If I am feeling lied to about who I am, and insecurities are abounding, build myself up! Celebrate the things God is doing in my heart and life. Step out into new things relying solely on His strength. If I am tempted to cling to “stuff’,” give something precious away. I once heard that when Satan says you can’t possibly do something, agree–yes, you are right. In my own strength I can’t. But I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me!
    I forget sometimes that I’m in a daily battle until the enemy sneaks in and tries to pull something. I hope to mature in this area, so that I’m ready and alert at all times.
    Lord, help me know your strategies! You are always the Victor!


    1. That is SUCH good insight, acting in the opposite spirit to ruin the enemy’s plans! I sure appreciate you sharing this. I know it will help others too. And I too am still learning to be discerning about recognizing the spiritual activity behind bad stuff manifesting in the natural. I think it’s a learning curve for all of us for sure!
