Satan’s Fiery Darts

“Sinclair Ferguson helpfully labels these four ploys “Satan’s `fiery darts” [Rom. 8:31-35]. He summarizes them in this way:
Fiery Dart 1: “God is against you,” Satan says. “He is not really for you. How can you believe He is for you when you see the things that are happening in your life?”
Fiery Dart 2: “I have accusations I will bring against you because of your sins,” Satan argues. “What can you say in your defense? Nothing.”
Fiery Dart 3: “You say you are forgiven, but there is a payback day coming-a condemnation day,” Satan insinuates. “How will you defend yourself then?”
Fiery Dart 4: “Given your track record, what hope is there that you will persevere to the end?” Satan asks.” -Derek Thomas
