How tall is the devil?

Posted on June 5th, 2018.

Throughout our lives, we are taught to believe that Satan is so powerful that he is second only to God Himself in ultimate power. Well, admittedly, he is powerful, but not THAT powerful. In fact, he is way down the line in “pay grade.” He doesn’t even cast a long shadow.


When I was young, my mother taught me to realize the devil’s strength.  But she would say, “Remember, greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world.” My pay grade is way above his! “After all,” she said, “the devil is only 8 inches tall!”


“What!” I exclaimed. “How do you know he is only 8 inches tall?”


“Because,” she said, “he can’t be over 8 inches tall to be able to sit on your shoulder and whisper lies in your ear!”


So, I submit, be aware of the fiery darts of the enemy, but fear not, for if God be for us, who can stand against us!

  1. Just read the post about the devil being only 8″ tall. I think that is something to remember and share with others. Especially young people who are tempted to do things they know they shouldn’t do. AND….some adults. Thanks for the insight.
