As Christians we jeopardize our security when we wait for the devil to make his move before we take action. Did you know that we can start the battle before he does? The devil never minds his own business, he makes us his business and he comes to steal, kill and destroy. If he is not bothering you that means he is bothering a brother or sister somewhere else. I enjoy telling the devil what he cannot do. I love thwarting his plans before he can implement them. The Lord gave us dominion so we might as well use it.
Psalm 91:10 No evil will conquer you, no evil plague will come near your home.
If no evil plague can come near our homes, why wait until it does before we do something about it? The devil is bent on spreading the curse around the whole world, a man’s relationship with the Lord means nothing to him. The devil hates God and he hates you, he has nothing to lose. The devil does not deserve any sympathy whatsoever, he is destined for hell for all eternity. Adam let the devil into our world but Jesus spoiled his works. The devil has presented himself to the world as a man of power and ignorant men believed his lies. The devil is the founder of all fake news and he has a large office of employees!
Isaiah 54:17 No weapon that is formed against you shall prosper. . . This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord.
The devil does fabricate weapons (plagues) but he does not have the power to make them effective. In order for the devil to launch a successful attack on people, he needs them to cooperate with his plan. He needs the target to agree with him, they must expect to be infected and speak it out. The devil is constantly urging us to say how we “feel”.
I told My people they could have what they say, but they have been saying what they have
People confess sickness into their lives because they don’t know any better and the devil does not want them to know any better. Jesus left but He sent the Holy Spirit to eradicate ignorance out from His body. And right on cue the devil found men who would inject his doctrine into the body of Christ. His doctrine was instrumental in seducing men away from the truth, consequently, most Christians speak more in line with the devil than as the sons of God.
Galatians 3:13 Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, cursed is every one that hangs on a tree.
Many Christians do not know what all is included under the curse! The curse is listed in the book of Deuteronomy, it covers every sickness, every disease, poverty, lack, robbery and the destruction of families. There was no death in the earth until Adam released the curse. The curse ran unchecked until it was spoken over Jesus as He hung on the cross. The world had come to accept and live with the curse, despite Jesus redeeming all men. Brothers and sister we are not ignorant concerning the devices of the devil. We will not accept any sickness and we will not know any lack, we are redeemed.

I know if I sow I will reap,
I choose what I will sow.
Lord what shall I give?
I want to sow bountifully,
give me Your grace to help me.
I want all of Your grace,
I want all of the blessings.
I want all men to know
the goodness of my Lord.
