Authority Over the Devil by Joyce Meyer - posted March 15 Wednesday
Behold! I have given you authority and power to trample upon serpents and scorpions, and [physical and mental strength and ability] over all the power that the enemy [possesses]; and nothing shall in any way harm you. —Luke 10:19
One of the best ways to defend ourselves against the devil is to know the Word of God and speak it aloud against the lies he bombards our minds with. When the devil tells you God doesn't love you and you will never amount to anything, go to war using the Word of God. Get out your two-edged sword and use it!
Talk back to the devil, loud and clear, saying, "I am the righteousness of God in Jesus Christ" (see 2 Corinthians 5:21); "God has a good plan for my life" (see Jeremiah 29:11); and "Nothing can separate me from the love of God" (see Romans 8:35–39). Trust God—know that you are more than a conqueror through Christ as you confidently declare the truth of His Word.
Power Thought: Through Christ I have authority over the devil.
