7 Tips to defeat the Devil

St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil…

1- Go to Confession.

Once the confessional line gets thin, the activity of Satan increases. To decrease the work of Satan, increase the use of confession. Confession is more powerful than an exorcism. One is a sacrament and the other is a blessing

2- Live a sacramental life.

The best way to protect ourselves from evil is through the sacraments because they were instituted by Jesus Christ and fill us with the grace to protect us and bring us closer to God.

3- Forgive others and seek humility.

This closes the door closed to the devil and opens it to God.

4- Help yourself.

You have to say and do things differently than your nature says. It is human nature to fall back into old habits. People need to turn to God and pray for grace. Then they need to be ready to accept those graces and strive to make good choices.

5- Stay away from evil.

It is better to protect yourself from evil than to try and rid yourself from it. Once you open a door to it, you cannot always close it on your own.

6- Recognize the devil and hate the sin

The power of Satan increases when people don’t believe he is real.

His ordinary work is temptation and we deal with temptation every day.

Possession is the extraordinary work of the devil and is very rare.

The usual work of the devil is sin. Sin leads to the death of souls.

7- See the world for what it is.

In the end, Christ has conquered, but during our lifetime on Earth, we need to be aware of evil influences all around us. Since we live in a secular culture, the evil one is a strong influence. That is why it is so important to stay close with Jesus Christ. If we are not doing that, we have no protection and that is very dangerous.
