5 Areas of Your Life Satan Wants to Access and Corrupt

by | Feb 10, 2022 | Spiritual Warfare

The mission of the enemy is to strategically access people’s lives—to steal, kill and destroy (John 10:10).

What Satan offers may appear to be good and pleasurable in the natural, but his agenda will always be to steal, kill and destroy. He is always trying to enter your life in some way to perpetuate his evil intentions.

Here are five areas where Satan wants to steal from you and destroy you:

1. Your heart – “Keep thy heart with all diligence, for out of it are the issues of life” (Prov. 4:23, KJV). The devil is aware that whatever affects your heart will affect your entire life. He knows the heart is the center of human living. Everything we do and say is a reflection of the condition of our hearts. Whatever has control over your heart will have control over your entire life. That is the reason we are to guard our hearts with all diligence. Allow the Holy Spirit to dwell in you. Don’t give the devil a foothold in your heart (Luke 10:27).

2. Your worries – “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God” (Phil. 4:6, NIV). Worries take your heart away from God. It magnifies your problems and reduces God in your life. Worry produces fear, and the Word of God says God has not given us the spirit of fear. The Bible makes it clear that there is such a thing as the spirit of fear that comes from the devil. This spirit of fear is closely linked with things such as overthinking. Overthinking means fear and worries are the devil’s instrument. If he can get you to be anxious, he will suggest things that are sinful and inconsistent with the Word of God. We should expect that God will take care of us. Forget what tomorrow will look like (Matt. 6:33, Prov. 3:5-6).

3, Your thought life – There is an ongoing battle. We are in a continual spiritual war. That war is a contention for our lives through our thoughts. We need to bring every thought that exalts itself above the knowledge of Christ into captivity. The enemy can plant thoughts into our minds. Cast down your imagination (2 Cor. 10:3-5).

4. Your speech – Satan wants your communication to be corrupted. He loves it when you use vulgar language and he wants your speech to tear down others. With your mouth, you can bless someone or curse someone. Death and life are in the power of the tongue. We must awake to righteousness. Our thoughts and words must be edifying and give glory to God (1 Cor. 15:33).

5. Your body – You were bought with a price. Therefore, glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s. Our bodies belong to God. They are means in which God intends to express His glory. Satan is desirous to use our bodies also. He wants us to be filthy so that the spirit of God will not be able to dwell in us (1 Cor. 6:18-20).
