Makes satan Fear You


It Is Written, James 4:7,  therefore submit to God.   Resist the devil and he will flee from you.
Many people accept the lies and distortions that satan peddles.  He closes their hearts, eyes, and ears to the truth.  He says bad is good, and good is bad, to all who reject Jesus.
satan takes advantage of every vice known to man.  He paints pictures that appeal to man's pride, greed, lust, self-indulgence, and so on.  He tells people there are no limits to pleasure, as evidenced by the fact that so many people are doing it.
If you even consider doing any of this stuff, you are opening the door for satan to deceive you to ultimate death.
When we accept Jesus as our Savior, we receive many things.  We become righteous in God through Jesus.  This is right standing with God.  We also become His child.  Galatians 5:22-23, tells us of what is called the fruits of the spirit.  This is a list of new qualities in our lives,that we should live by.
In the process we also receive the Holy Spirit Himself.  He is an ever present guide sent by Jesus to help us live according to God's will.  He warns us about things that satan is trying to deceive us with.  The Holy Spirit will help us keep our hearts, eyes, and ears focused on God.  All we have to do is listen to His voice in our hearts.
satan is relentless, and he will attack everyone.  The Bible says he goes about like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour.  1 Peter 5:8.  Many people tell satan to leave, but he doesn't because they fear him.  They use words as if the words were magic spell.
When satan attacks a real believer, the story is different.  The believer knows that satan has been defeated by Jesus.  The believer knows that he is in right standing with God, and that he has the authority to use Jesus name from Jesus Himself.
All the believer has to do to make satan run in fear, is to call on the name of Jesus and tell satan to leave.  Because the believer is righteous, uses the name of Jesus, and has the Holy Spirit for backup, the believer is operating from a position of unconquerable power.  No devil on earth or in hell can stand up to that.
Remember.  As a child of God, you have what Jesus had.  So fear not, satan has been defeated by Jesus, forever.  satan has no power over you.  In Jesus you have power over satan.
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 Lord
 Amen
