KEY SCRIPTURE: John 8:32 KJV” And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free”.
To truly win over Satan you must be doggedly committed to the truth. There is a difference between truth and a fact. The ‘fact’ is the physically apparent event or thing that one can see, feel, taste, smell or hear. The truth is what God says. The truth on many occasions is not visible or tangible yet it is real. In actual fact it is more real than that which you can see or feel. The truth which is always in unison with God’s word is spiritual. The fact is natural and it is subjected to the power of the spiritual. 2Corinth 4:18 KJV” While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal”. Satan and his demons can influence the natural, physical things, which are also temporal. The truth which is God’s word is not seen, yet it is eternal, meaning it abides forever more. Which of these would you believe, the physical temporal thing or the eternal abiding one? Satan cannot influence the truth.
I wish to share the following true story to buttress my point. A man who was very thirsty, entered a refrigerator at his work place and took a bottle of water and drank almost three quarters of it. Just after drinking it a friend got to the scene and shouted what have you done to yourself? What you took is concentrated sulphuric acid. The brother shouted back at this friend shut up, it is water. He left the place and went on his way. They observed the remaining quarter and indeed it was concentrated sulphuric acid. It was mistakenly placed there. This brother who drank a great portion of it had no problems whatsoever. How could he have survived such a danger? He applied the belt of truth. He declared that it is water. The word says, you would take deadly things and it would not hurt you. It also Says you would have what you say (Mark 11:23b) He stood on that scripture to claim, it is water.
IF he had not known the scripture and stood on it, fear would have gripped and bound him and the corrosive effect of the acid would have ended his life. The word of God is truth (John 17:17) The Bible teaches us how to benefit from it. James 1:21 KJV ” Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls”. To benefit from the truth. Do the following:
1 Put away sin from your life.
2.Put away naughtiness. That is accept the word as it is and don’t argue with it or talk back.
3.Accept the word like a baby takes its father’s word
If you do this, the truth in you would be ready to save you when the need arises.
The word of God is truth. In meekness I receive it, believe it, speak it forth and I act on it. I am always a winner doing what the word says. None of the lies of the devil can put me down. Thank you, Lord Jesus.
