What Satan Fears Most

What Satan fears most

  Is a man on his knees; 

Not vast marching armies 

With great weaponry.

He knows he can stand 

Against the power of men; 

To engage us in battle 

Is mere sport to him.

But a man on his knees 

With his head bowed in prayer 

Is something quite different 

To the prince of the air.

For when he sees us in prayer 

To our God most high, 

He knows we have seen 

Through his devilish lies.

That's why Satan fears most 

A man on his knees; 

And we'll keep him trembling 

If our prayers never cease.

Pray without ceasing. (II Thessalonians 5:17)

We need to realize that there is a war constantly going on in the spiritual realm. The devil does not want you happy, blessed and rejoicing in the Lord, but rather depressed, in debt and blaming God for all the wrong that is going on in your life. The story in Daniel chapter 10 is evidence of this because as Daniel fasted and prayed for his answer, God heard him and sent an angel to deliver the message, but an evil spirit fought with the angel for 21 days postponing the answer from coming to Daniel. (Daniel 10:2-14) The good news is that God's angel won over the evil spirit and they will win for you as well.

The enemy will try anything he can to separate you from having a relationship with the Lord and he is very successful at bringing problems our way in order to keep our mind on anything and everything except God. That is why it is all the more important that we have a strong and committed prayer life. If the devil constantly sees you in prayer and always asking guidance and wisdom from the Lord to help in your situation, then the enemy knows his power has become ineffective against your life.

Maybe you are having problems within your family, marriage or at your job. You need to recognize that is the enemy trying to get in and destroy what you have and just as you would fight to get a burglar out of your home, you need to fight that spiritual war by praying, fasting, speaking forth the scriptures of authority and rebuking the enemy in the name of Jesus Christ. Jesus says in John 10:10 "The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly."

I encourage you to not sit idly by and let the enemy win, but rather stand strong and take back what the enemy stole in the name of Jesus Christ, in whom has all power and dominion, forever and ever, Amen.
