Satan can do no more than God allows.

"One marvels at the grace God shows even in His wrath to wicked men. Captivity is ordained for Zedekiah, yet God wills to restrain the Babylonian conqueror, and will not allow Zedekiah to be killed. We need to remember that Satan takes orders from God - he can do no more than God allows."
(Rev James Philip, Notes on Jeremiah 34:1-7, Gardenstown Church, Tuesday 14th August 1956)
