Just like looking at God’s attributes should help us in overcoming temptations, we can also look in His Word and see the limitations he puts on our adversary, the devil. The devil is a created being. The devil in not God. The devil is limited. The devil only has direct influence over what God, in His perfect plan, wills him to have. When we face temptations, we can have confidence, from God’s Word, that the devil can only persuade he cannot push us into sin.
