Overcoming Satanic Strategies In Your Relationship

But people bought them all the same since that was the only option. Over the years, phone designs and models have evolved and what we have now are beyond phones, they are more rightly called DEVICES. These are multi-functional gadgets that can play the multiple roles at the same time.

 
So we can begin to understand what the Bible means when it says:
 
"Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his DEVICES." (2 Corinthians 2:11, KJV)
 
We should not be ignorant of the DEVICES of the devil. What can we learn about the devices of the devil?
 
1. A device goes through a process before its release.
A device doesn't just come out, it is something that is conceptualised as an idea, then documented, and then goes through plans and processes before it eventually comes out.
 
The same way, we need to understand that the devil sits down to plan his attacks. He makes plans and find ways to execute his plans. That is why the scripture calls it a device. It is something that is packaged from hell to destabilise you. You should not be ignorant about it. You should not be oblivious about it.
 
When you travel from work and you lodge in a hotel, and then a beautiful lady lodges beside you and you get to become friends in a matter of minutes and she is already in your room chatting away, it is not because you are friendly, it may be a device to draw you into a compromise. You are supposed to live cautiously and with the fear of God in your everyday happenstances. This is what it means when it says you should not be ignorant.
 
2. A device has a target market
A device is not just released haphazardly. It is always targeted. The same way, the devices of the devil are targeted at you. They are deliberately designed with you in mind. You must never let down your guard. Otherwise, before you know it, you may be compromising heavily despite the fact that you are born again, Spirit filled and tongue-talking.
 
3. A device is designed to taste
You know you have a device weakness? It may be Samsung, Techno or an Apple device. There is always a device specification that resonates with you. The same way, there is a device that the devil sits down to design to feed your weakness. That is why the Bible says:
 
"But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed." (James 1:14, KJV)
 
For some, they must not see a light complexioned lady, for some, it is the other way round. For some, their knees weaken when they see a busty lady. For some ladies, they get melted when they see a tall, hunky gentle man who is easy going. The list goes on, but you know within yourself what your weakness can be.
 
So what do you do? You guard yourself against your weakness. You don't feed your weakness. You know you must not behold the green bottle, yet you followed your friend to the club? You just shot yourself in the leg.
 
You know your temperature rises when you see light complexioned lady and yet they brought a tall, light complexioned lady to you from the village as house help, you said it is okay? You are setting up yourself for a downfall that way!
 
You know as a lady, if you spend time with man who “toasts” you for hours, showers you with gifts, and so on, you cannot say No, and yet you followed that man on a shopping spree when you know he is already married? That’s like carrying fire in your bosom!
 
4. A device is never forced on you
Finally, a device cannot be forced on you. You have to decide to buy it. The same way, the devil cannot impose anything on you, you have to patronise him to buy into his traps. What do you do?
 
Guard yourself. Pray a lot. Be vigilant, be sober, be alert, be alive in Christ. Don’t go and spend the night with the one you are not married to. Don’t fly to Dubai with the person who is not your spouse. That is not God’s favour working for you, that is a device trying to trap you.
 
You know the scripture says favour can be deceitful? Before you jump and conclude it is God’s favour, the question must be asked, "is compromise involved?" Is your conscience violated? If that is the case, it is not favour, it is set up against your destiny.
 
A person who doesn't want to be ignorant stays informed. Stay informed by reading and studying God’s word regularly!
 
I pray for you this morning that God will indeed send help your way in Jesus name and help you to confront and overcome that device of the evil one.

CONFESSION FOR THE DAY
I am not ignorant of the devices of the devil. I will not be trapped.
 
PRAYER FOR THE DAY
Lord, open my eyes to see the devices of the devil and the strength to resist them.
 
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

"The temptation to give in to evil comes from us and only us. We have no one to blame but the leering, seducing flare-up of our own lust." (James 1:14, MSG)
 
ACTION PLAN FOR THE DAY

Disconnect from anybody that feeds your weaknesses.
