Ok....now that I got that off my chest...let me encourage you today with this...if the devil has been annoying you like a pesky fly, or running over you like a mack truck....have no fear...because Jesus had defeated him already through His death, burial and resurrection! This is my mantra as we enter into the Easter season.....Jesus has ALREADY won the war against the devil. We don't have to worry when we get into a battle with him....remind him...you HAVE ALREADY LOST.....now get lost!
This past weekend the 'ol devil tried and failed to attack one of my kids. Ok..it's one thing to come after me...but don't go after my kids. Nothing, and I mean nothing makes me more mad than to see the devil at work in one of my kid's lives. As I was praying and doing warfare on Saturday, God gave me a picture of what His Word does to a demonic spirit when it tries to attack. I could envision this little imp and my hand around its throat squeezing...everytime I spoke the Word out loud to it the squeeze got harder and the life of this thing got cut off. I literally had my hand in a fist imagining squeezing this thing to death as I spoke Isaiah 54:17 over it..."NO weapon formed against my child will prosper in Jesus name!" and James 4:7 "I submit myself to God....and Satan I resist you in Jesus name and you MUST flee!"
Breakthrough came....praise the Lord! And also the reminder that we are not to "grow weary in doing good"...don't give up the fight....God is off His throne doing business on our behalf when we are standing and doing our part in fighting the devil. So...do not despair my friend...if you need help in the fight...go...enlist some friends and family to fight with you. You are not alone... Jesus and His Word are at your deposal to squeeze the life out of him who is attacking you.
