Following on from my post yesterday we need to take advantage of God’s word when dealing with attacks of the enemy. Attack sounds like a strong word maybe for that small voice niggling in your mind, telling you you’re not good enough. But that’s exactly how he can start to undermine your faith.
Jesus has disarmed Satan, he has triumphed over him by the cross.
Colossians 2:15 – And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross
Talk about the sword of the Spirit, what a great Bible verse to be used in any circumstance where the enemy is trying to bring us down.
Disarmed, weakened, incapacitated, invalidated, debilitated, this is the truth of the battle that rages throughout the ages, the victory was ours when Jesus died, but oh how Satan tries to deceive us, to exaggerate his own importance, expand his sphere of influence through his lies and fraudulence, don’t be a captive audience, speak out against his schemes and deception, recognise that the only direction he is travelling is down, see he is harmless, a defeated foe, we have the power and we already know that God’s is the Kingdom, the power and the glory, and there will never be a change to the end of that story.
