DAILY WORDS OF HOPE
BY PCG, HOPE CONGREGATION–SAK. EST
TODAY’S VERSE: 1 JOHN 4:4| REVELATION 12:11
THEME: VICTORY OVER THE DEVIL
WORDS OF HOPE:
The devil or Satan as he is mostly called is an enemy to every child of God. He hates everyone and everything that is born of God. He is tormentor-in-chief, and accuses those whose confidence is in the LORD.
The devil, according to the scriptures has been overcome. He has been rendered powerless and ineffective. Colossians 2:15 puts it this way:
“Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.”
Principalities and powers are part of the devil’s command structure. They, together with spiritual wickedness in high places, dominate nations, organizations, people and spaces. But thanks be to God, Christ Jesus, our Saviour has disarmed them all. Jesus, not only disarmed the devil and his cohorts; He also made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them. This means Jesus’ victory over the devil, his cohorts and kingdom is no secret. It is not hidden, but is rather known to all in the spirit. Hallelujah!
Many Christians for fear of the devil live their lives in bondage. Many are so afraid of demons. They will drink anything and buy anything presented to take the devil away from them. This should not be your story. Jesus has given us victory over Satan and his cohorts and his kingdom. The scripture affirms you and all Christians are seated with Christ in the heavenly realms at the right hand of God [Ephesians 2:5.6]. This positioning of dominance is “far above all rule and authority and power and dominion and every name that is named [above every title that can be conferred], not only in this age and in this world, but also in the age and the world which are to come.” [Ephesians 1:21]. This means the devil and his entire kingdom are subject to you. Quit being afraid of Satan. Jesus the Greater One, lives in you by the Holy Spirit. Henceforth, when Satan rears his head in any of your affairs, rebuke him in Jesus’ name. Give him no place in your life.
• Thank God for victory over the devil, his cohorts and his kingdom
• Rebuke the devil’s works in your life, in this nation and across the nations of the world in Jesus’ name
I praise you LORD for the great victory over Satan. He has no power over me or anyone and thing that belongs to me. I rule over forces of darkness and their influences in Jesus’ name. I am an overcomer because the Greater One lives in me…. Hallelujah!!!
