Satan Is Right There

Read the Bible in a year by reading Zechariah 1-4 today.
Why are we not surprised to find Satan standing where he was in Zechariah 3? Verse 1 says,
Then he showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the Angel of the LORD, and Satan standing at his right hand to oppose him (Zechariah 3:1).
Satan was ready to oppose the work of the Angel of the Lord in Joshua, the high priest during those days. There is no doubt in my mind that Satan does the same thing toward each of us. Yes, if we resist him he will flee from us, but only for a season and he stands afar off, waiting to see if we become weak and then he is right there ready to do his evil work of temptation again.
But you, my friends, be strong. Keep reading the Scriptures without ceasing, as you are doing. If you live by the Scriptures, Satan cannot touch you.
