Vulnerability to satan

It Is Written, 2 Corinthians 2:11, lest satan should take advantage of us; for we are not ignorant of his devices.
satan is not stupid. Just as a lion seeks week prey to devour easily, so does satan. There are some types he prefers, because they are easier to get.
A person who does not read the Bible. This person is not aware of what God says, and therefore doesn't know that he can have power over satan. This person gives in to satan because he thinks that satan has power over him. So he gives up, and satan does have power over him at that point.
This next one we will call undecided. This person doesn't know what to believe, because he never really took the time to try to figure it out. He is the type that is susceptible to the things he sees. If he sees something he likes, he goes with it. So you can imagine satan keeps him well supplied with things he likes to see.
Last one is a worldly person. This type of person gets so wrapped up in things of the world, that it takes over his whole life. The things that are common to most people include, money, sex, possibly alcohol or drugs. They have the same opinions about things that everybody else has. This type of person usually doesn't recognize sin, because he never was able to discern right from wrong.
Even if you consider yourself a good person, when you compare yourself to other people, you must remember that just being a good person, will not get you to heaven. satan messes around with good people all of the time, and tries to convince them that they don't need God. Don't fall for that nonsense. The sooner you recognize that you do need God, the better off you'll be, and satan will have a harder time trying to get you. Have a blessed day. Praise the Lord!
Remember Jesus Loves You
Prayer of Salvation
Lord Jesus, I thank you for what you did on the cross for me. Your blood washed away all my sins, by your stripes I was healed, your death and resurrection brought me salvation. Please forgive my sins, and come into my heart as my personal Savior.
Thank You
Amen
