    In my experience, Satan preys on my insecurities and my areas of pride or self confidence. He uses my insecurities or weaknesses to convince me that I am not worthy of God’s favor. He uses my self reliance to convince me that I don’t need God, that I am “just fine the way I am.”

    God has provided us with the defensive and offensive means (armor) to guard ourselves from the schemes of the Devil and to defeat him if we will just use them. For me the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God is the most powerful. You will recall that when Satan tempted Jesus in the desert, He used Scripture to rebuff and rebuke him. This is why it is so important for us to study scripture and to bury it in our heart, so that it is there when we need it to combat the schemes of the Devil. What about you?
