RESIST THE ENEMY- YOU’RE INVOLVED IN A FIGHT

BE GRATEFUL It’s Thanksgiving

TO THE BIBLE: James 4:7 TLB
“…Resist the devil and he will flee from you.”
LET’S TALK
Sometimes in our walk of faith, we encounter circumstances that greatly challenge our faith. For instance, maybe as a leader, you’ve done everything you thought you should, and applied all the strategies you know to get your fellowship to grow and make an impact, but it doesn’t seem to be happening. And now you’re thinking, “What next?” “What more can I do?”
At such a time, it’s important that you have a spiritual point of view and realize there’s an adversary strategizing against you, against the Gospel you preach, and against the Church. And to counter him, Apostle Paul tells you to: “Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand safe against all strategies and tricks of Satan” (Ephesians 6:11 TLB). He knows that if you don’t put on the whole armour of God, you’ll be vulnerable to the enemy.
Verse 12 of the same chapter goes on to say: “…we are not fighting against people made of flesh and blood, but against persons without bodies—the evil rulers of the unseen world, those mighty satanic beings and great evil princes of darkness who rule this world; and against huge numbers of wicked spirits in the spirit world” (TLB). This fight is not a physical combat; it’s a battle where the adversary tries to sway you from the right path through deception. The only way you win in this kind of battle is to do what the Word says—resist him (James 4:7), standing strong in your faith, knowing that you have overcome him by the blood of the Lamb and the word of your testimony (Revelation 12:11).
The blood reconciled us to God, gave us life, cleanses us from all sin, and is on the mercy seat before God in heaven. The word of your testimony, which is your testimony of God, is your faith-proclamation of the Word at work.
Go Deeper: 2 Corinthians 2:11; 10:4-5, 1 John 5:4
Pray
Dear heavenly Father, thank you for your precious Word I have received today. I’m not ignorant of satan’s devices, and I refuse to fall prey to them. Through my faith in the precious blood of Jesus and by the word of my testimony, I put satan and all his cohorts where they belong—under my feet—in Jesus’ mighty Name. Amen!
Act
Memorise Ephesians 6:10-18, and let the words remind you of all you need to do to keep the devil where he belongs.

SEPTEMBER 14, 2020: HE HAS MY HEART!

I declare that I’m in Christ, born again and full of the Holy Spirit. He has my heart! I have the life and nature of God in my heart. There’s a change in my heart; a transformation inside. I experience transformation and glory in my soul and body as a result of the impact and influence of the life and nature of God in my spirit. The Kingdom of God is set up in my heart. The Holy Spirit finds expression in my heart, dispensing His love through me. Out of the good treasures of my heart, I bring forth good. I’m mightily blessed by the Holy Spirit. I’m a life-giver. Thank You dear Father, for setting up your Kingdom in my heart. With my heart, I envision and apprehend the realities of the Gospel and of our Kingdom-life. I pray for the unsaved around the world, that their hearts be open to receive the Gospel, and be saved; that your power for salvation will mantle their hearts even now, in Jesus’ Name. Amen. Hallelujah!

I declare that I'm in Christ, born again and full of the Holy Spirit. He has my heart!

Rhapsody of Realities Confessions

SEPTEMBER 15, 2020: HE’S WITH ME AND IN ME!

I declare that the Holy Spirit is my comforter, helper, teacher, guide, standby, counsellor and advocate. He’s with me and in me; therefore, I can never be in the dark or miss my way in life. He lives in my heart and abides with me forever. I’m conscious of His presence in my life. Irrespective of what I may face in my life, divinity is at work in me! Greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world. I’m manifesting Christ; Christ in me, the hope of glory! Heaven is in me; The fullness of the Godhead is fully tabernacled in me, and expressed through me! Thank You dear Father, for the great honour and blessing of having Christ live in me by the Holy Spirit; by virtue of His indwelling and abiding presence, I’m infused with divine energy and supernatural wisdom to do the will of God, and live triumphantly over the devices of the evil one and the corrupting influences in this world. Hallelujah!
