In Ephesians 4:27, the apostle Paul writes, “Neither give place to the devil.”
The word “place” is the Greek word topos. It refers to a specific, marked off location.
It carries the idea of a territory, province, region, zone, or geographical position. the word topos depicts a geographical location, this lets us know that the devil is after every region and zone of our lives.
However he has to find that entry point!
We often throw open the door to the devil when we refuse to let go of old hurts and wounds refuse to acknowledge if we do wrong, or refuse to forgive others, or refuse to stop judging others for their grievance.
We leave a “marked-off place” through which the devil can enter to accuse. We are more than Conquerors through Jesus Christ, so we don’t have to let the devil run all over us.
The Bible boldly declares, “…Greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world,” (1 John 4:4).
Now look at the word “devil” for a moment. The word “devil” comes from the Greek word diabolos,
The first part of the word is the prefix dia, which means through and often carries the idea of penetration. Because dia is used at the first of this word, it tells us that the devil wants to make some kind of penetration.
The enemy is looking for an entry point. Once a point has been located through which he can enter, he begins penetrating the mind and emotions with his accusations and slanderous words.
I prophetically speak over each of you right now that the devil shall not gain territory in your life, nor shall he gain a foothold in your affairs.
Every door to your heart and soul is closed and no entry point shall he find. Bitterness, offense and strife shall not bind you.
Warriors Arise, and give NO place to the devil!
