Just a quick reminder, the devil is so dumb that he waited until Jesus had spent 40 days alone in fasting and prayer before he “tempted” Him. Next time the enemy flex’s his muscles around you, remember he’s an idiot. No need to speak with, entertain or engage with a being that is so far beneath you. James said it this way, resist the devil and he will flee from you. Your dealing with a coward, even a little courage spooks him. There’s nothing impressive about him so no need to be intimidated by him. Move on. Jesus did!
Matthew 4:1-3 “Then Jesus was led out into the wilderness by the spirit to be tested by the devil. He fasted for forty days and forty nights, and at the end of it was famished. Then the tempter approached him.”
