How To Get Rid Of B.U.G.S

Series 1 – the grip

Being Under The Grip Of Satan!!

Let’s talk about the GRIP in Being Under The Grip Of Satan!

What exactly is the GRIP?

A grip is defined as to grasp or seize firmly or control…….


How is it possible for believers in Christ to allow themselves to be in the SEIZED, or CONTROLLED. It must be an easy thing since it is becoming a common occurrence!

What do I mean by that?….. It’s just too frequent among those that possess or claim to be walking with Christ daily. Understand this …..Satan‘s battlefield is not the everyday things you encounter. His battlefield is your MIND.


What you encounter each day has to be processed as an event in your mind FIRST in order for you to react to that event. How we react reflects what’s in our mind!! The GRIP is when we have allowed Satan to use our minds as his playground. The CONTROL FACTOR is when we give Satan access to our mind and we don’t correct it. In other words, we don’t immediately discard it or remove it.

We have millions of thoughts but it’s how we process those thoughts that direct our life. When we give Satan access to our thoughts and not immediately correct those thoughts then Satan, of course, uses his GRIP to further destroy more of us.

Are we going to have bad thoughts…..YES!! You are not perfect!! Don’t be fooled by this….you are giving away more of yourself to Satan’s GRIP by thinking you are perfect. Remember our minds are connected to our hearts. Be careful how you check your pulse!!

Proverbs 23:7 states…For as he thinks in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, says he to you; but his heart is not with you.

Learn to recognize that your mind is Satan’s battlefield…be able to know his devices and how he uses them. Your mind controls all that you do ….don’t casually give it over to Satan. His goal is to destroy, steal, and kill. (Read John 10:10) Satan is a THIEF! He is not something or someone you can invite to dinner casually.

You, you, you have the power to use your mind effectively and within the confines of living a Christian Saved Life. We do not have to tolerate the GRIP OF SATAN when we can simply address its presence and remove it.

We are allowing the wrong things to set up house in our lives.

Ephesians 6:11… Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil.

There is a part 2 to this series the GRIP. …..STAY TUNED IF YOU WANT TO HEAR MORE.

About Me


This blog was the beginning of social media posts created for the sole purpose of encouraging other believers in Christ. It really started out in mediation of how God compares us as believers to sheep in the Bible. I was so amazed by the comparison that I continued to research it for my own benefit. It was during that process that I learned about the damage a bug can do to a sheep if it ever gets into his head. This sparked a platform for all the things I, an avid believer in Christ, needed to share with others or rather anyone that would listen.
