God Controls Your Enemies
[3:151] We will throw terror into the hearts of those who disbelieved, since they set up besides GOD powerless idols. Their destiny is Hell; what a miserable abode for the transgressors!
God controls our enemies. Satan is our most ardent enemy. Therefore God controls Satan. God limits what Satan can do when God allows him to test our claims.
[43:62] Let not the devil repel you; he is your most ardent enemy.
[2:208] O you who believe, you shall embrace total submission; do not follow the steps of Satan, for he is your most ardent enemy.
[8:48] The devil had adorned their works in their eyes, and said, “You cannot be defeated by any people today,” and “I will be fighting along with you.” But as soon as the two armies faced each other, he turned back on his heels and fled, saying, “I disown you. I see what you do not see. I am afraid of GOD. GOD’s retribution is awesome.”
