It is written, 1 John 4:4, you are of God, little children, and have overcome them ( evil spirits ) because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.
As we all know by now, all of us are spirits, created in God's image. We walk around in a body just as Jesus did. That fact in itself causes many problems.
satan knows that his only chance to get to us is through the body. The body is morally weak by nature, and wants only pleasure of one sort or another. The body is controlled by a brain that tries to pamper it. The spirit however is the opposite. It wants God, and to do the right thing. There is the problem.
The brain wants to corrupt the body and tries to block the guidance of the spirit. The spirit is really the power in the body, but it must be fed regularly. If it isn't fed, it is weak and ineffective. Under these conditions the spirit can be overwhelmed, if it does not connect with God.
The spirit feeds on the Word of God. As it feeds, it grows in strength. After feeding regularly for a while, the spirit can start to control the brain. Now the brain agrees with the spirit that satan is not in control, they are.
At this point the spirit who is one with God, and the renewed brain, all get together to get the body to do what is right in the eyes of God.
Once the brain and the spirit get control of the body, satan becomes a minor irritant at times, and nothing more. This is a very brief description, but I think it gets the idea across. We have control, and satan cannot get to us if we don't let him. Have a blessed day.
Praise the Lord!
Remember Jesus Loves You

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.
