Satan is powerful, but not omnipotent.

The two passages of Scripture that come immediately to my mind in that regard are:

God placing limits on the extent to which Satan could afflict Job (Job 1:8-12; Job 2:3-6); and 

Paul's statement to the Corinthian church that God would not allow them to be tempted beyond what they would be able to bear (1 Corinthians 10:13), which implies that God (being omniscient) knows the "limits" of each indvidual Christian with regard to temptation, affliction, or testing.
