“Leave no [such] room or foothold for the devil [give no opportunity to him]” (Eph. 4:27 AMP).
I remember reading in Reader’s Digest about a lovely little patch of grass that people were prone to cut across.
So the gardener built a small fence around this beautiful square of grass – just some small stakes and string. But people persisted in stepping over the string and walking across the grass.
So the gardener painted a crude sign:
Gentlemen will not,
and others must not,
trespass on this property!
That gave me the idea of putting up a sign on my body. You can’t see it, because it’s in the spirit. But the devil can see it.
My sign says:
DEVIL, THIS MEANS YOU!
I did that by faith. I’ve had that sign up for years now, and the devil doesn’t trespass on God’s property – my body.
As the custodian of your body, it’s your job to see to it that Satan does not trespass on God’s property.
Confession: As a custodian of God’s property, I do not allow trespassers. I leave no room, nor do I even give a foothold for the devil. I allow him no opportunity.
