One of the most effective methods for me have of course been to rebuke in the name of Jesus Our Lord and Savior.
But if you really want to see the evil little bugger run....... just start praiseing the name of Jesus, eather in word or song.
This is very applicable in the sleep faze or just getting the willies situations.
God bless, pickles

Some good verses:
“Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it” (Col. 2:15).
“...For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil” (1 John 3:8)
“...He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world” (1 John 4:4).

This shows us that Jesus already won. The devil only has access to you because of lies that you believe about yourself, God, or others; and sin in your life, especially unforgiveness (2 Cor. 2:11). Another way the devil tries to gain access to your life is by using these same tactics with someone in authority over you.

A good exerpt from Dr. Dale A. Robbins:
Any area of your life which is not submitted to God is considered open territory to the devil, and he has the right to bring his expanding influence to those areas. This is why the scripture says, “...submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you” (James 4:7). The only way to actually resist satan is to submit yourself fully to God. This was what Jesus was referring to when He said, “...the ruler of this world is coming, and he has nothing in Me” (John 14:30). Jesus had submitted himself to His Father, and although the devil would try Him, there was nothing for the devil to use to gain an advantage over Jesus.

I do this. For me, it's effective because my mind is focused on praising God rather than any fears/problems. I always make silent prayers to God asking Him to give me strength to get through whatever it is that I'm facing. You know, the "quick prayers."

I have found that the best way to avoid or overcome or defeat the devil's wiles is to be in the presence of the Lord. When He is present, the enemy is already defeated. I find that the devil and his minions have very little if any success at deluding me or leading me astray, into temptation, when I am in the presence of Jesus.

But how does one walk in the presence of our Lord? By asking Him to be with us, to manifest His presence in and with us, and to believe. To listen to that small still voice which we know is His voice, and to praise Him in heart and mind. To sit and to work and to walk and to sleep in this stance. It takes practice, and we won't be perfect at first, maybe not ever, but even when we find ourselves not in His presence, then we are back in His presence, as soon as we realize we were not. And if any bad thing happened, He will remind us and convict us and cleanse us and grow us, all in His love. Against such, the devil has no weapons.

"If then you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your mind on the things above, not on the things which are on earth. For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, is revealed, then you also will be revealed with Him in glory. "

Thank God for the written word that can become the living word in our experience through the Spirit of faith and the word of His grace. The way we resist the devil by faith through the written word and he will flee from us the same way he did from our Lord when being tempted in His humanity in the wilderness.

Thankyou all for your posts.
I hope more will add to this. It has been a concern to me that so many, especially our young christians have felt under attack.
This could be a good learning tool for them.
It looks like the best tool, as all of you have shared, is to be in the presance of Jesus. Amen on this!
God bless, pickles

Do not be afraid of them; the LORD your God himself will fight for you. Deut 3:22

Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Deut 31:6

Surely God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid. The LORD, the LORD, is my strength and my song; he has become my salvation. Isaiah 12:2

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. John 14:27

For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. 2 Cor 10:3-5


Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints. Ephesians 6:10-18

Satan cannot do anything without God's permission. Why worry so much about it? God controls everything and those temptations and trials come from God. To be strong in those trials just read study the Word so the Holy Spirit is able to strengthen your convictions.
