Not unaware

There are times when we give Satan too much credit and even ascribe attributes to him that belong solely to God. It is God who is Omnipresent (everywhere at once); Omnipotent (all powerful) and Omniscient (all knowing). Satan may have an army of demons but he is not omnipresent. He may have some power but he is not omnipotent and must ask God's permission (Luke 22:31). Satan may see and understand the results of our prayers but he doesn't know our thoughts unless we verbalize them. He is not all knowing. An example of his lack of knowledge is seen in 1 Corinthians 2:8 which tells us: "None of the rulers of this age understood it, for if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory."

Herein lies the importance of "if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord " (Romans 10:9). When we confess with our mouth that Jesus is Lord we are making a declaration of our faith not only to the people around us but also to the powers of darkness who do not know our thoughts unless we say them out loud.

Satan may suggest an idea to us or drop a thought into our thinking but he doesn't know what we do with it, unless he sees us acting on it. For example if Satan tempts us with worries and then hears us verbalizing those worries to others he knows he has succeeded. But what if we take those worries to the Lord and leave them with him without spreading them to others? Then we will have submitted to God, resisted the devil and the devil "will flee" (James 4:7).

Paul writes, "For we are not unaware of his schemes" (2 Corinthians 2:11). We show we are not unaware of Satan's schemes when we guard our tongues.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
