Keep Satan In Check by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

Keep Satan In Check by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

Submit yourselves therefore to God.
Resist the devil, and he will flee from
you (James 4:7).

It isn’t for nothing that the Bible tells us in
Ephesians 4:27 not to give place to Satan, our
adversary. He’s extremely vicious and
desperately wicked. He operates absolutely without
mercy. Therefore, you must be on the offensive against
him and keep him in check. Never be casual with him;
cast him out, because there’s no telling how far he’d go
if you let him. The Word enjoins us to “Neither give
place to the devil” (Ephesians 4:27).

Satan doesn’t play fair. We see his viciousness in
his dealings with Job. As soon as Job broke the hedge
with his negative confessions, Satan swung into action,
and in one swoop, he ruined all of Job’s businesses.
While Job was still bemoaning the loss of his entire
wealth, the Bible says, “…there came also another, and
said, Thy sons and thy daughters were eating and
drinking wine in their eldest brother’s house: And,
behold, there came a great wind from the wilderness,
and smote the four corners of the house, and it fell
upon the young men, and they are dead; and I only am
escaped alone to tell thee” (Job 1:18-19). Job lost all his
children and businesses in one attack of Satan.

Job was ignorant that the devil was the one
on the onslaught against him; he thought it was God,
and he responded, “Naked came I out of my mother’s
womb, and naked shall I return thither: the LORD gave and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name
of the LORD” (Job 1:21).

This is the same mistake a lot of Christians still
make today; they’re being afflicted by Satan, and they
think it’s the will of God; no, it’s not! God’s will is for
you to live in His glory, walking in divine health, peace,
abundance, and joy, and He sealed it by the death,
burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Therefore, stop
the devil from messing with your health, your joy, your
prosperity, your peace, etc. All you have to do is say no
to him, and walk in God’s light.

The Bible says we’re not ignorant of Satan’s
devices (2 Corinthians 2:11). Whenever he shows up,
give him no place. Don’t let him take anything that’s
yours. The Lord Jesus said, “…In my name shall they cast
out devils…” (Mark 16:17). Be quick to cast him out
and paralyze his activities in your life, your family, and

Dear Father, I thank you for the authority you’ve
vested in me to keep the devil and his cohorts in
check. I terminate their evil, vicious and malevolent
activities in my environment, and declare that only
your peace and prosperity reign in, and around me;
thank you for giving me dominion over Satan and the
powers of darkness, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
