Satan has one job. . . destroy. And he’s very good at it. His job is to steal, to kill, and to destroy. He walks about as a roaring lion, looking for whom he can devour. He steals your joy, kills relationships, and destroys your good thoughts, among other things.
What a lot of us don’t know, is that he can be defeated. You can defeat satan. Jesus said, I am come that they might have life, and have it more abundantly. THAT MEANS YOU!! We have that power to live an abundant life, to keep our joy, to stand strong and fight against whatever satan throws at us. All we have to do is speak the word of God over satan. Jesus said, Luke 10:19 (KJV) – behold, I give unto you power to trend on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy; and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
If you were told to go play the lotto, and you are guaranteed to win, you would go play. Now, knowing “YOU” have power to defeat satan, use it, it’s in God’s word. His word is guaranteed. Put on your armor every single day to fight off Satan. . .
Ephesians 6:10-20 (KJV) – Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness: and your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the spirit, which is the word of God: praying always with all prayer and supplication in the spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; and for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.
You have the power!! Now, get your joy back!!!
