So then, surrender to God. Stand up to the devil and resist him and he will flee in agony.
The enemy is a bully. Bullies are loud, intimidating, liars, and try to threaten you to control you and keep you down. You have to stand up to the enemy and say, “Your intimidation and threats don’t move me. You have no power over me. I know who I am, and I know whose I am. You may seem big, but God and I are a majority. What He’s destined for my life will come to pass. I will not live worried or let your lies play in my mind.”
The way you defeat the enemy is by saying what God says about you. When the enemy says, “You’ll never break out and rise higher,” you have to declare, “The path of the righteous gets brighter and brighter, and that’s my path. My greatest victories are still in front of me.” When you hear the lie, “You’ll never break the addiction,” tell the enemy, “I am surrendered to God. In Jesus, I am free, and I will become who I was created to be.”
Prayer for Today
Father, thank You for sending Your champion, Christ Jesus, who is far more powerful than the enemy. Thank You for breaking the enemy’s power and strengthening me to stand up tall. I will walk in the liberty by which Christ has set me free. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
