I believe alot of the things we blame on Satan are either our own flesh or our own stupidity. There are alot of things that happen to us because we did not use our common sense, or didnt listen to the Lord’s warning (whether in His word, or via the inward voice of the Holy Spirit). Yes, satan comes to steal kill and destroy, and there are lots of things satan does to mess up this life, but in each thing he does theres a promise in the word of God that will counteract and effects of the devils attacks! The Devil’s main avenue of attack is via the mind. He puts doubt of Gods word in there, He puts temptation in there, He puts deceptions in there.. to decieve you to do something foolish or sin or even think things are so bad about some situation, when they are going to be allright. His primary attack is deception. but the weapons of our warefare are not carnal but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds , (what kind of strongholds?..)Casting down IMAGINATIONS, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every THOUGHT to the obedience of Christ;
therefore, resist his thoughts, deceptions, and submit to Gods word, washing the soul w/ the water of the word.
and he will flee
trust God in every attack, bring up His word and promises in prayer, and He will come to the rescue.. devil or no devil.
