Fight Against Distractions
“I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you.” – Luke 10:19 NIV
Fight against the attacks. We have a stubborn unseen enemy. Be ready for war. Put on the full armor of God, the helmet of salvation, the breastplate of righteousness and the shield of faith in order to derail every attack of Satan and his demons. For those who abide in Christ you have an adversary that hates you. You are part of a royal kingdom that he’s been driver banished from and he is deadly jealous of you. The bible says he knows his time is short so he is busy looking for someone to destroy. Be smarter than you enemy. Know that your fight is not against the person you see causing you trouble, but there is an unseen evil force behind it.
Rejoice my friend because you already have the victory. Christ has already overcome the works, even our faith.
In Luke 4 there is a demon possessed man in the synagogue where Jesus was preaching. The demon possessed man kept crying out “go away, what do you want with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us?…” Jesus exercised his heavenly authority over impure spirits and sternly commanded them to “Be quiet…Come out of him!” Then the demon threw the man down before them all and came out without injuring him”(Luke 4:35 NIV).
Today if you encounter difficult people, difficult situations, negative doctor’s reports, kids that won’t listen etc. know that you already are an overcomer in Christ Jesus. Exercise your authority as a believer and kick the devil out of your territory. Plead the blood of Jesus over your life and remind the devil that you have authority to trample on snakes, scorpions, and all the power of darkness so he cannot touch you. You belong to Jesus and it is illegal for him to your domain. Send the devil packing and don’t invite him back in.
Today’s Prayer: Lord, I thank you for the authority I have as one who abides in Christ Jesus. Thank you that the power of God flows through me. I thank you that I have the power to trample on serpents, scorpions and all the power of darkness and nothing will harm me. In Jesus name, Amen.
