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.
Jesus Redeemed me from the curse, no poverty, no lack in my house.
Wealth and riches in my home, the devil is rebuked for my sake.
Father daily loads me with benefits, He takes pleasure in my increase.
I love being redeemed,
and I give my Lord all the glory.
We are about to embark on the greatest adventure and outpouring of God’s Spirit! This month the Holy Spirit is asking us to examine ourselves/take inventory so as God’s Vessels we can take our part and place in the Body of Christ!
Scriptures to meditate on:
Hebrews 12:1 Therefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily besets us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us.
Psalm 26:4 Lord you can scrutinize me. Refine my heart and probe my every thought. Put me to the test and you will find it is true.
2 Cor 10:6 It is written, and having a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.
1 Peter 4:17 For judgement begins at the household of God; and if it begins with us, what will be the outcome for those who do not obey the gospel of God?
Psalm 139: 23, 24 Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me of unbelief and lead me in the way everlasting.
2 Timothy 2:4 No soldier when in service gets entangled in the enterprises of (civilian) life: his aim is to satisfy and please the one who enlisted him (God)! DO ALL FOR THE GLORY OF GOD!
