Crushed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

crushing

And the God of peace will crush Satan under your feet shortly.
Romans 16:20

Let’s just think about those words for a moment.

Okay.

Are you wowed and amazed yet??

No?

What’s WRONG with you???

Okay, I’m gonna share some of what this verse means to me, and then, if you’re not wowed, then I give up! 😉

So, Paul wrote the book of Romans, and every verse in it. Why is this important? Because here is a man who knew a little something of pain…pain to the point that most of us would have just thrown in the towel.

Paul was a man with a HEAVY past. In addition to that, he was ridiculed, discouraged, shipwrecked, beaten, stoned, tortured, and imprisoned. ( I included “ridiculed” in that list because that’s about as far as our persecution ever goes as Americans, and often that’s all it takes for us to jump ship.)

Anyway, Paul knew pain personally. So, whatever he says about suffering, even if it’s just for our own sin, I am all ears!

We all carry our own unique battle with sin on a daily basis. Add to that cancer, MS, stroke, diabetes, and all of the many diseases which rob us of abilities, time, and sometimes, life. Add to THAT, the sins of others! Betrayal, adultery, murder, theft, and the list unfortunately goes on and on….

All together, those are quite a load of burdens. ALL ultimately caused by sin.

That’s enough to take the wind out of anyone’s sails.

BUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The God of peace will crush Satan under your feet shortly.”

There will come a day, thankfully, that Satan will be conquered. Not only conquered, but under MY feet, and YOUR feet! Satan , who is crushing each of us in his own unique, demented way, will one day soon be CRUSHED under our feet!

I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I don’t know about you, but this verse gives me such great hope!!

But we’re not even at my favorite part yet! Shall I continue? I’ll take that as a yes.

Shortly.

Satan will be crushed under my little size 8 feet shortly.

You remember as a kid, the day after Christmas? You went to the calendar, and saw all the MANY months until Christmas would come again. You would sulk and complain that it was sooo far away, and that it would NEVER get here!

But before you even finished drying your bathing suit in July, December would pop out of nowhere! And you would be amazed at how time flew.

For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.
2 Corinthians 4:17

Whether it is in our lifetime or beyond it, we are told that it will be SHORTLY. So, hang on with me, just a little while longer! He will come and CRUSH that enemy under our very feet.

Shortly.

  1. I see you’re looking forward to crushing me under your feet 😦 I’ll be doing my best to ensure this never happens. I was created to rule the world, not to end up as a doormat!

    • Hey Satan loser! I am victorious and you are defeated! In the name of Jesus, it’s time for you to lay down and get under my feet where you belong hahaha! Trampling your weak, powerless and defeated body under my size 12 barefeet is going to be fun haha! Anyone else want to join me?

  2. There’s good news and there’s bad news. The good news is Jesus already gave us the authority to trample and crush the defeated Satan under our feet. We already have the victory over him, and we are encouraged to enforce this victory by putting him beneath our feet and keeping him there, which is where he belongs.

    Luke 10:19
    “I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you.”

    The bad news is for you Satan, because I’m going to crush you under my size 12 barefeet every day hahaha, and there’s nothing you can do about it!
