KEY SCRIPTURE: Rom 16:20 KJV” And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.”
Dear brother/ Sister, the right place for the devil to be, is under your feet. He must remain in subjection to us. Our Lord Jesus fully demonstrated that, and that is how He would want us to live. Unfortunately, most children of God are under Satan’s control. Please note, Satan always needs your cooperation to be able to control, and manipulate the life of the child of God. The Lord said, John 14:30 KJV” Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.”
He said the Prince of this world comes, but he has nothing in me. Satan seeks to deposit his words, ways, feelings and images in men, so he would be able to manipulate and even destroy them.
One of the acts of Satan and his devils that he deposits in men is fear. Fear is basically, faith in the ability of the enemy. If you have fear of what the devil can do or will do, then ,God our father is very helpless at doing anything for you .Fear is choosing to put your faith in the devil. The story of Job may seem, God just gave him over to the devil, yet a good study of the book, shows that he had fear of the acts of Satan in him. It took a matter of time for it to show forth. Listen to what He said. Job 3:25,36 KJV “For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me. I was not in safety, neither had I rest, neither was I quiet; yet trouble came.” Trouble came because the enemy had succeeded in depositing his works in Him. He also voiced out what he believed about the devil. This act actually established what was in his heart.
2nd Corinth 10:5 says, “Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;” You can’t dominate the devil if he has put his kind of pictures, thoughts and ideas, that exalts itself above the knowledge of God in you. You must cast every non scriptural image or thought, if you are to have dominance over the enemy. There are some brethren who harbour bitterness, and have all kinds of negative happenings around them. These people wonder why things go that way? The Lord Jesus has perfectly triumphed over Satan and his cohorts, yet if you submit to their promptings, threats, and suggestions, then you have freely given the defeated one the right to control you. To be in control over them, decide never to submit to any pictures, suggestions, threats or any view that comes from devils.
You can say with the Lord, the devil comes. But has nothing in me.
Jesus my Lord, triumphed over Satan, and his cohorts and so I have likewise triumphed over them. I refuse every non scriptural thought, desire or fear. My words always reveal my superiority over Satan and his inability to Lord it over me. I am a master over devils, I have a sound mind, self control, health, and prosperity. Hallelujah.
THOUGHT: WHAT YOU BELIEVE DETERMINES WHAT CONTROLS YOU.
Mar 4:24 KJV” And he said unto them, Take heed what ye hear: with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you: and unto you that hear shall more be given.”
Eph 4:26 KJV “Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath: Neither give place to the devil.”
