I keep hearing people blaming the Devil for so and so problems in their life. At times I wonder should they be blaming him alone.
Now don’t get me wrong, I’m no slimy advocate of the Devil nor anything of that sort. But I do notice that people, at least the most of them, overlooking the Devil’s one weakness. If they could just capitalize on that one weakness instead of playing on, they would get the Devil and his vile minions running for cover.
So what is that one weakness?
Before I give you that one weakness of the Devil, ask yourself this one question, ‘Will oneself try to deflate the Devil’s plans on knowing this one weakness or just let it sit still like a sloth in the Amazon forest?’. If you intend to not let it sit still, then the next words are surely for you.
The one weakness – the Devil is a weakling against the authority of the Word of God. Doesn’t matter how much he tries, he has no chance against the Word of God. Despite commanding a huge host of demonic entities he is just not able to overcome the Word of God and end up sitting on the throne of heaven. Despite having to his disposal millions if not billions of human stooges on earth, he still unable to overcome to Word of God especially on what it says has happened, what the Word of God says is happening and also what the Word of God says will happen!
Our God is in the heavens; he does all that he pleases. (Psalm 115:3)
Whatever the LORD pleases, he does, in heaven and on earth, in the seas and all deeps. (Psalm 135:6)
For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. “For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven and do not return there but water the earth, making it bring forth and sprout, giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater, so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it. (Isaiah 55:8-11)
“From the fig tree learn its lesson: as soon as its branch becomes tender and puts out its leaves, you know that summer is near. So also, when you see all these things, you know that he is near, at the very gates. Truly, I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place. Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away. (Matthew 24:33-35)
Now that you know the Devil’s weakness don’t sit on it. Do something worthwhile. My point is: Act on the Word of God. As simple as that.
The problem is that people don’t know how to act on the Word of God especially against the Devil. So let me tell you a few suggestions of how to do so. If you are willing, please read on:
- Read, read, read and read the Bible again and again so that you remember what it says about the Devil and your role in the fight against him.
- Love the Lord God and love him wholeheartedly. The Devil hates it when people love the True Lord God of heaven and earth.
- Rebuke the Devil and his evil angels in the name of Jesus. Those who believe in the Gospel which speaks of repentance from sins and the resurrection of Jesus from the dead, have every right to effectively rebuke the Devil out of their lives.
- Pray, pray, pray and pray a little more. Ask the Lord for wisdom, grace and protection against the Devil.
- Live a holy life unto God. Submit to God by deciding to obey his Holy Word.
- Resist the Devil. The Bible doesn’t tell you to the Devil’s door mat. Fight the Hellish Serpent for the glory of God.
- Interfere in the Devil’s plans for others especially those of your family, friends and church. Give no opportunity to the Devil.
A bonus suggestion, is that you pray for the safety, peace and conversion of the Jews and all of Israel. He’s been after them for many years. Sabotage the Devil’s plan for them by praying to the Lord God for them. And see how the Lord works great wonders and miracles in your life!
Christ be with you.
