1) Knowing that when we submit to God and resist the Devil, he must FLEE from us. 2) Knowing that "greater is He that is in YOU, than he that is in the world" (1 John 4:4) 3) Knowing that the Devil must kneel and ask PERMISSION of God before he can even approach a believer.
Caution concerning study of Satan and Evil We must study this doctrine carefully - recognizing 2 opposite dangers.
1) IGNORANCE. We should be aware of our enemy's devices "lest Satan should get an advantage of us" (2 Cor 2:11) 2) INTEREST. One of Satan's devices is to draw our attention away from God and to himself, even if that focus is for the purpose of fighting against him.

Why did God allow Satan to tempt man? (3)
1) God granted this because of His Own Holy Nature. 2)God granted this because of His loving desire to have voluntary love and fellowship from man. 3) God allowed man to be given a choice in Eden because of His Sovereign Wisdom in that He is able to bring greater good out of the events that have followed the Fall.  One example of this is the teaching of Paul in Romans 5 that believers have gained far more in their salvation through Christ than they lost in their fall with Adam.
