THE DEVIL HAS FAILED ON YOUR ACCOUNT
Number 23 :23 – 24
Surely there is no enchantment against Jacob, neither is there any divination against Israel: according to this time it shall be said of Jacob and of Israel, What hath God wrought! Behold, the people shall rise up as a great lion, and lift up himself as a young lion: he shall not lie down until he eat of the prey, and drink the blood of the slain.
The counsel of hell is to destroy you, the plot of darkness is to bring you to naught, especially when you have chosen to walk in righteousness, and to follow the path of godliness.
The bible says: the thief cometh not but to steal, to kill, and to destroy… (John 10:10) This implies that unless there is something special about you to steal, to kill and to destroy the devil would not waste any time on you; that the devil borders about you alone is something to be proud of.
The efforts of the devil are gears towards ensuring that you never see the light or get to know how special you are; meaning he does not want you to understand that God made you extra ordinary, went the extra mile to make provision for you to enjoy immeasurable grace and has made a place for you at His side by His throne in the most supreme majesty.
The devil is trying hard to ensure that you never see any need to accept Jesus as your Lord and savior, he is working tirelessly to ensure that you never really understand that you were irrevocably forgiven when you asked God for forgiveness, he is vehemently stating that you are that man/woman who was in sin and doing all sorts of wrong things, he is working very hard to make you believe that there is no difference between you who have accepted Jesus Christ and that unbeliever who is on his way to hell. The devil is very busy declaring lies that there are no benefits but constraints in being a born again Christian i.e. a child of God. All to the very same objective; to steal the opportunity of salvation from you while you are still alive, to kill you by ensuring that you never taste the joy of salvation or live in it, and to destroy you by ensuring that you never achieve God’s dream for your live throughout your life time and after wards, you spend eternity with him and other condemn fallen spirits.
But he has failed!
God reaches out to you today with these words: I am come that you may have life and have it in abundance (John 10: 10)
There is hope for you, because Jesus came for this reason; to destroy the works of the devil! (1John 3:8)
Just when the devil thought he had made a head way in your life, at the very nick of time, Jesus came to save sinners and because God is Eternal, The Almighty, and The Alpha and the Omega, He had you too in mind when Jesus was dying for the sins of the world.
No matter the charge of hell against you, no matter what you have done, God says: I will remember your sins no more.(Jeremiah 31:34) For anyone and everyone who accepts Jesus Christ, any word of accusation against you concerning something you once did is a lie, because Jesus never did those things neither did you; you are Jesus now.
You are an overcomer now! This means you have conquered, you have won, and you have immerged victorious over all the schemes and tricks of the devil.
When the devil comes at you, you rebuke him in the name of Jesus, when he comes through diseases, sickness, and illness, you keep declaring your victory in healing in the stripes of Jesus Christ. When He comes through lack and need, we declare victory by the sufferings of Jesus Christ, when he comes through sin, declare our victory by the righteousness of Jesus Christ.
No matter the challenge, our declaration is the same, we have victory over you satan in JESUS CHRIST! What’s more at the mention of the name of Jesus Christ he has no choice but to bow. Who we used to be is immaterial, today we are JESUS CHRIST the head of all principalities and powers, the One to whom all things are subject, and all things includes satan and all his cohorts!
Our victory is eternal, there will be no rematch, and neither can the devil dare to ever raise his ugly head, for our Lord is forever matchless.
