Left to Tell

I have been reading a book called Left to Tell by Immaculee Ilibagiza. This book was recommended to me to read by a friend. It is about the genocide in Rwanda and how this young lady survived against incredible odds with God's help. I have never read something so powerful in my life. So the devotion below is so true. This girl had God's protection through the entire genocide. It was amazing. I could not put the book down.

Grace for the Moment by Max Lucado
I have given you power....that is greater than the enemy has.
Luke 10:19

Many players appear on the stage of Gethsemane....[But] the encounter is....between God and Satan. Satan dares to enter yet another garden, but God stands and Satan hasn't a prayer....Satan falls in the presence of Christ....Satan is silent in the proclamation of Christ....Satan is powerless against the protection of Christ....When Jesus says he will keep you safe, he means it....When he says he will get you home, he will get you home.
