Billy Graham Explains The Devil's 'Most Successful' Trick

As Christians, we know that we have an enemy. Satan is real, and is scheming to knock us off the track of faith. He uses many deceiving tactics, but what is his most successful trick? "The devil has many tricks up his sleeve (so to speak)—but surely one of his most successful is to make us believe he doesn’t even exist," writes Billy Graham 

"We may admit that evil is real—but then deny that behind it are demonic spiritual forces bent on our destruction and death. Or we may deny the devil’s true nature by turning him into a harmless cartoon character with a red suit and pitchfork. But Jesus said, “He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him” (John 8:44)."

The devil has many schemes that we should be careful to look out for. "Lust, pride, power, discouragement, doubt, money, escapism, pleasure, hate, anger, jealousy, selfishness—the ways he attacks us are almost endless. If one temptation doesn’t work, he’ll try another—and he’ll keep on trying," highlights Graham.

So, let's look to Jesus when we feel the enemy coming closer. Pray to the God who loves and protects you! "The most important fact about Satan is that he is a defeated foe! By His death and resurrection, Jesus Christ conquered death and Hell and Satan—and someday His victory will be complete," declares Graham. 

"In the meantime, make sure of your commitment to Christ, and turn to Him every day for the strength you need."
