Beloved, rely on the bible for information on the devil, don’t let the old information about the devil or the information that he is spreading about himself affect you. The information from the bible alone gives the true picture. Hebrews 2:14-15speaks of what Jesus has done to the devil. We will look at what the bible tells us about the devil; this will fuel your authority and confidence.
I John 3:8 says, “For this purpose the son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.” If Jesus has done that, the devil should not be defeating the believers. Deception built on the ignorance of people is the major key. Many don’t know the truth about the devil and they think he is still powerful.
Luke 9:1 and Luke 10:17 tells us that it is through the name of Jesus you have the authority over the devil. You must know that you can exercise that authority. Likewise, in Luke 10:18-19, Jesus referred to every born-again person that they have authority over the devil.
From James 4:7, if you can resist him, it means you have authority over him. You must know your position with respect to the devil. God has done something about the devil, it is left for you to use the Name of Jesus and the word of God and the authority you have as a child of God to put the devil in his place. Don’t let the devil exercise any illegal authority in your body
Ephesians 6:10-12, speaks about our relationship to the devil and Ephesians 1:20-23 tells us we are seated with Christ in the same place, far above all principalities and power. So, when dealing with the devil, deal with him as somebody who is beneath you by the reason of death, burial and resurrection of Christ and your union with Him. Because you are born-again, you are in union with Christ and you have authority over the devil.
PRAYER: Lord, I declare in the name of Jesus that the devil has no portion, lot or memorial in all that concerns me in Jesus’ name. Amen.
