The thing that we have to understand is God is omnipotent: He is all-powerful. God is omniscient: He is all-knowing. God is omnipresent: He is present everywhere.
Satan, in sharp contrast, does not reflect these divine attributes. Satan is mighty, more than any man, and more potent than most angels. But he is not anywhere near to being the equal of God.
But, the Devil’s knowledge is limited; he can’t know all of our thoughts. And while God can be everywhere at the same time, Satan can be in only one place at one time. However, he does not work alone. He has his minions, his demon forces that do his dirty work.
Having this knowledge, God warns us in the book of Ephesians 6:10-12 – Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Satan was defeated when Jesus died for our sins. His death on Cavalry put paid to the Devil scheme in trying to keep us away from God.
Revelation 12:10 – And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, now come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ. For the accuser of our brethren is, cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.
Mighty God, I thank you for the armour that you have placed around me. The protection that you have given me against the evil one. Most of all, I am grateful that you sent your only begotten son to die for me, which provides me with the opportunity to be in your presence. Amen.
