For 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. So use every piece of God’s armor to resist the enemy whenever he attacks, and when it is all over, you will still be standing up. Ephesians 6:12-13 TLB
“Well Sandy, I don’t believe in anything I can’t see!” You can’t see the air, but you have to admit it’s truly there. You wouldn’t be breathing without it! You can’t see the wind, but you can feel it. The truth is, we are spirits, we have a soul and we live in a body. Just as God created us long ago, nothing has changed. Truth doesn’t care whether you believe it or not, it still remains truth. Our spirit is who we truly are and it’s our spirit that is constantly at war with ‘those mighty satanic beings and great evil princes of darkness who rule this world’.
The real question here is; who will you surrender to? Romans 6:16 TLB says, “Don’t you realize that you can choose your own master? You can choose sin (with death) or else obedience (with acquittal). The one to whom you offer yourself—he will take you and be your master, and you will be his slave.” I choose to fight the good fight of faith by trusting in God who is able to deliver me. He has equipped me with everything I need to overcome. Jesus led the way to victory and I’m following him all the way.
I’m dressed for success because I wear HIS robe of righteousness, not my own. I submit to the Lordship of Jesus Christ because God is my Father and He has promised to provide for me, protect me, cover me, shelter me, be my healer, my deliverer and keep me in all my ways. I’ve read the end of the Book and we win! I rule and reign with him, not because I deserve it or earned it, just because God says I do. When the devil promises me the world if I follow him, I remind him that Jesus and I are on the same side. Jesus said in Luke 10:19, “And I have given you authority over all the power of the Enemy, and to walk among serpents and scorpions and to crush them. Nothing shall injure you!”
Father, thank you for the authority given to us. Let us be wise and diligent in everything that comes against us, that we would know the truth of your Word and use it in theauthority you gave to us. We know that we overcome by these things; The Blood of the Lamb & the Word of our testimony. You’ve given us this body to house your Holy Spirit so that we could commune with you. Your Spirit leads us into all truth and gives us everything we need for every battle we must face and win. We overcome because you overcame. It’s in Jesus’ Name we thank you and give you praise for victory belongs to our King. Amen
