Do you feel that the devil is frustrating your spiritual life by discouraging you through various trials and temptations? Maybe you are drowning in self pity and feel more of a victim day by day. Don’t loose hope! rise up and stand in the victory that Jesus has bought for you.
The truth is, as long as we are on this earth we will encounter numerous trials and temptations. We don’t live in a perfect world and the bible says we have an enemy who prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour (1 Peter 5:8).
His goal and ambition is to steal, kill, and destroy (John 10:10). He will use circumstances of life and people to worry you, to intimidate you and to make you afraid. But the good news is, as God’s children we don’t have to be “Under” this fear.
It is God’s desire that you walk in His power and authority and live a life of an overcomer. God has provided us everything we need to live above all the problems we face. The only thing you need to do is study God’s word and let God renew your mind so that you can know who you are and what you have in Christ. Bible says in Hosea 4:6 – My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.
As a believer, you need not fear Satan or circumstances through which he can trouble you, but realize and exercise the authority that God has given you over the Devil and all his power. Luke 10:19 – Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
God has already done His part. He has defeated the enemy for you. But the devil will try his best to create havoc in your life. So instead of praying to God to deliver you, You rise up in His strength and exercise your authority over the devil.
When you yield to the temptation and sin, it gives the devil a legal right to dominate your life.
God says AMID ALL THINGS, that means whatever you go through, whatever the enemy throws at you, you are more than a conqueror through Christ. Not just conquerors but MORE THAN CONQUERORS.
When you know that He is for you and that He will never leave you nor forsake you, and that He has already defeated the enemy for you, you can then rise up from that position of victory and be victorious!.. When you recognize Satan’s activity in your life, take authority over him in the name of Jesus and command satan to leave. Mark 16:17 – And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues.
Your enemy is already defeated. Through Christ, the battle has been fought and the victory has already been won!
