satan's Tools


It Is Written, 1 Peter 5:8, be sober, be vigilant;  because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion;  seeking whom he may devour.
This verse states plainly whom satan MAY devour.  This word "may" is absolutely correct,  because you have to give satan permission to get you. How do you give him permission?  Let's take a look.
We give satan permission any number of ways.  When we judge other people, gossip, have unforgiveness, have stress, despair, impatience, frustration, ignore what the Bible teaches, follow what the world does, and too many other items to list.
If we rebuke satan in Jesus name, he must leave, the Word says so.  So it stands to reason that if we do what satan deceives us into, we really are giving him permission to live in our hearts and run our lives.
If we know the Word and live it, satan will try to get to us, but he will not succeed.  We have no reason to fear him, because, 1 John 4:4 says, you are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you, is greater than he  (satan ) who is in the world.
So you see, if you trust in the Word and what it says, you don't have to hide under the bed to try to keep satan from finding you.  Through Jesus, you are in charge.  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 Lord
Amen
