Who is Satan? What is His strategy?
One of Satan’s favorite strategies is exploiting a person’s weakness (1 Peter 5:8; Ephesians 6:11). First, he must observe their vulnerable areas. Then, he exposes his findings to witnesses who malign the fault. “Lone rangers” are easy targets for Satan because he can alienate them from strong believers and God.
Who is Satan - His Limits
Satan, limited and restrained by God, is neither all-powerful nor all-knowing, nor present everywhere. He can do nothing apart from God’s sovereign authority. The biblical book of Job is an example of not only Satan’s terror but also his limitations and defeat.
While Satan can entice a person to sin, he cannot force him to do it. Unlike the omniscient God, Satan cannot know everything about the future or a person’s thoughts.
While Satan can influence people to sin and can cause sickness, his power is limited by the all-powerful God. The Lord controls -- permitting or restricting -- each of his actions. Although Satan is titled the “prince of the power of the air,” he cannot ever be the independent ruler of the earth.
Satan is a fearsome foe but conquered under the victorious King, Jesus Christ (Colossians 2:10, 15; Revelation 20:2-3, 10).
