I am sad to say that I have spent far too much time in my walk with the Lord running in full flight from the devil instead of standing in the authority God has given me through Jesus Christ and putting the devil in his place and sending him running in full flight from me. Jesus Christ did not get up on that cross so you and I can get down on the ground and cower as the devil steals, kills, and destroys (John 10:10) from our lives through fear, intimidation, lies, deceit, and all of his other nonsense.

He died on the cross and rose again so that those who repent and believe in Him can be forgiven, enjoy life everlasting instead of eternal damnation, and live the abundant life on earth Jesus offers (John 10:10). I am excited to say that I know the authority that belongs to me in Christ Jesus, and I have every intention of standing in my authority and living the life Jesus died for me to have. I have believed the devil’s lies for long enough. I choose to place my faith in the Lord and His Word – the TRUTH.

How about you? Are you standing on the Word of God and putting the devil in his place, or are you cowering and living a life of defeat? Are you ready for victory? Dig into God’s Word, apply His Truth to your life, stand in the authority you have been given through faith in Jesus Christ, and send the devil running. Live the life Jesus died and rose again for you to have. And remember to give God the glory!

“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” John 10:10 KJV

“Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.” Luke 10: 19-20 KJV

“Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.” James 4: 7-8 KJV

“And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.” Mark 16: 17-18 KJV
