A Healthy Heart
Then Satan went out from the presence of the Lord, and smote Job.
Job 2: 7a
Rarely does the devil conquer a healthy heart. Job feared God and abhorred the devil. Job was a righteous man. Could the devil conquer him? God gave the devil freedom and power over Job more than any other in the Bible. Could the devil conquer him? No, Job had a healthy heart and the devil did not overcome him. Job exhausted the devil. The devil struck Job's servants, his livestock, his children, his body, and his friends. He tried to seduce him through his wife. But nothing could overcome Job. If a person has a healthy heart, he will not negotiate with the devil. Then he will resist the devil. The believer immediately closes the door and turns his back on the devil. He takes out the shield of faith and with it extinguishes the fiery darts. He takes the Scripture and says, "This and that it is written." A believer who resists the devil overcomes him. If your heart is sick or weak, the devil will make you fall. A healthy heart resists the devil and puts the devil to flight. The devil then leaves discouraged and disappointed.

Conclusion: If a person has a healthy heart, he will not negotiate with the devil. Then he will resist Satan.
