Binding Satan is always a matter of faith and prayer, yet it also helps to be aware of his strategies, such as the following.
Tempts us to question God’s Word and his goodness, forgiveness, and love.
Tempts us to focus intently on our problems rather than entrusting them to God’s care.
Tempts us to see the wrong things as attractive so that we will want them more than the right things.
Tempts us to feel like a failure so that we don’t even try.
Tempts us to procrastinate so that things never get done.
If you find that Satan has darkened your life on any of these counts, lift up the situation to Our Lord, Jesus Christ, in prayer. Put on the armor of faith …and defeat the evil one.
