Do not give the devil a foothold

“Do not give the devil a foothold!” (Eph 4:27)

The Bible says: ““In your anger do not sin”: Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, and do not give the devil a foothold.” (4:26-27)

Opportunity is tropos in Greek, the same word from which topography comes. It means an area or region of land. Anger gives ground to the devil. Bitterness invites him into your heart. If you let him there, he will settle in there comfortably and pollute it with gossip and moodiness. What can you do? Throw him out. Don’t give him a chance. Delete the list of  sins of other people. Pray for your adversaries. Despise men’s misdeeds but not themselves. Turn your attention away from what others did and think about what Yeshua did for you. It may seem unbelievable, but he died for them too.

If Yeshua thinks they are worthy of forgiveness, then they are. Therefore, forgiveness does not have to come easily. We are all beginners in love and as long as you try, you are on the right track.

Only when you stop trying, you are opening the door to satan.
