"So is My word that goes out from My mouth: It will not return to Me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it." Isaiah 55:11 NIV
Does the Devil obey God? By his nature, the Devil is a rebel, the disobedient one. But can He do the will of God? It is possible for the Devil to do the will of God, even without his knowing or understanding. The Devil worked through Judas in betraying Jesus thereby putting him in the hands of those who killed him. But in the end, Jesus' crucifixion and death became our redemption and our victory.
The following is a translation of a story somebody sent me which illustrates how even the Devil can obey God.
There was a very poor woman who rang a Christian radio program asking for help. An evil witch was listening, got her address, called his secretaries and ordered them to buy food supplies to take to the woman with the following instruction: "when she asks who sent the food supples, tell her that it was the Devil." When they arrived at her house, the woman received the goods with joy and was straight away keeping away the food supplies sent by the witch. Seeing that she was not asking any questions, they asked her: "Don't you want to know who sent you these things?" The woman, in her simplicity of faith, replied: "No, my chid. It's not important, When God orders, even the Devil obeys!"
Don't worry about the manner your victory comes, for when God orders your victory, it comes, Have patience, and you will be surprised.
