1 Chronicles 21:1 KJV
And Satan stood up against Israel, and incited David to number Israel.
Either satan’s access to people seems to have no limits or he is given access to almost everyone. Verses like these freak me out a lot.
It is sad when some people feel they are immune to the devil and his ways. One aspect of the Lord’s Prayer, “lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil” is one of the most vital all-time phrases.
Satan got access to Jesus to tempt Him, but thousands of years before then, he got access to Adam and Eve. Today we read he got access to incite David. Jesus Himself would later say Satan got permission to sift Peter.
I don’t intend to highlight the power of the devil. No, far from that. But I wish to suggest to you that you live a life of folly if you think your anointing will prevent the devil’s access to you.
In 2 Cor 2:11 Paul the Apostle admonishes us not to be ignorant of the devices of the devil, lest he gets the advantage over. Let he who stands take heed, lest he falls.
The evil one never relents in his pursuit of you, don’t take him lightly through complacency or arrogance. Stay alert!
Have a blessed day.
