Your world was upside down without God; but now it is turned the right way up! Make no mistake, Satan does not like this, he is mad and angry, actually he always is.
Let us remind ourselves of what we are dealing with here. He challenges God at every turn, he knows there is no forgiveness for him so he hates the fact that there is forgiveness for us. He will seek to destroy you at every turn as told to us in the following scripture:
The thief (Satan) comes not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy:
This is Satan’s purpose, to steal your salvation, to kill you and to destroy your life, and not just yours, but he will target your family and friends all at the same time. He will try to use you to harm someone and then destroy you afterwards if you let him. It is all a game to him, so when he brings his game to you, you need to be a game changer. You need strategy, spiritual weapons, endurance and there is only one way you can be victorious over him and that is through Jesus Christ. There is power in the name of Jesus and everything you do must be in His name. God gave Him this name because of the power in it.
Wherefore God also has highly exalted Him, and given Him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Satan and all his demons have to bow to the name of Jesus. Whilst we acknowledge what he is capable of we do not fear him. All Satan had to do in heaven was to look beautiful, worship God and be a leader over the angels under him, and he couldn’t even do that! He could not fulfil his purpose and he does not want you to fulfil yours, so do not fear a failure and a continuous one at that. He does not know what you are thinking unless you vocalise it, he cannot take your life because he did not create you and God will not allow it (however he can convince you to do it or convince some else to do it,) he has tactics.
He cannot create, because he is a created being, in a word he is ‘limited’ in what he can do to you. His strategy is to remind you of your past sins, keep throwing the same temptations back at you and sometimes throw you some curve balls when you least expect it. So you need to know the game. The only way you will know the game is through studying the bible and prayer.
When someone hurt you, Satan will convince you through thoughts to seek revenge and to hurt them. Our natural logic and the sin nature will want to seek to get even also. He will use unwitting friends, family and acquaintances to convince you that what you are doing is right. This is his game plan, but don’t play it with him, change the game. Do it God’s way and love those who hurt you, the enemy will hate it, but there is nothing he can do about it because you have the power of the Holy Spirit protecting you and he cannot take on the Holy Spirit, he cannot win; but this is not to say he won’t keep trying.
Take advice and counsel from wise men and women of God and more importantly be led by the Holy Spirit. To be a game changer you need to focus on Jesus, the Word of God; to turn Satan’s games on him.
