Satan has you distracted with drama in one area of your life so he can attack you in a completely different area of your life.
The best way to defeat Satan is to remember that Jesus won the victory when He died on the cross. Close relationship with Jesus is the key. That probably means something different to each of us because our relationships vary. Nevertheless, our passion for Jesus wins the battle for us every time.
I felt heavily oppressed yesterday and so did my husband as well as my daughter, over 500 miles away. Did we look vulnerable to the enemy? We stayed united and consistent in God’s Word. We had our ears toward whatever the Lord would say to us. Today is so much better I'm happy to report!
I listened to an inspiring message about the 23rd Psalm on the way to work. The speaker mentioned how we Christians are marked and the enemy knows the Shepherd’s sheep. The teacher shared a testimony about a converted man who was delivered from evil. He was a wizard with an assignment to go into churches and curse Christians on Sunday mornings during sermons. His delight was seeing people fight over the teachings and chewing up the pastor with complaints and criticism. To the wizard’s amazement, he could never touch the Christians who had a passionate relationship with Jesus. The curses bounced right off of them. They were marked and devils knew it. This experience made a believer out of him!
I stopped my CD player and prayed for myself and every member of my family to be marked for Jesus covering them with his saving blood so that the enemy will not be able to touch them. I can’t think of anything greater to be passionate about than the Lord. His name is deliverer.
