Lest Satan should get an advantage of us:for we are not ignorant of his devices. 2 Corinthians 2:11.
One of the difficult positions to be in sports is that of a champion. There is so much pressure from expectations of fans, family, friends and colleagues to keep your title. Every tournament or contest is a battle against all the odds of becoming a former champion. So much is put into practice, preparation and strategy to win every bout. New innovations, schemes or tricks are introduced to give a winning edge.
The thought of loosing the trophy becomes the passion or driver to train to win. The devil is a former champion whose current modus operandi is devices or tricks. The dethronement is not partial, it’s total and complete in Christ. He did not loose some of his power, he lost everything but has his tricks intact. This is the truth that destroys every trick, scheme,strategy or devices of the devil.
“Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy:and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.”Luke 10:19-20.
Every believer must know what is his heritage in redemption which is power to thread on the devises of the devil. It’s non negotiable to bruise his head with truth and expose his tricks. The power is not for keeps but for show, use it or lose it. That the serpent is subtle and crafty is no longer news, but that he has no power is a fact.
How dare you fear a trickster when your’re armed or empowered with eternal weapons?
The devil truly is afraid of you, he’s not only the former champion, he’s lost the right to ever compete again for the trophy. Redemption is the triumph of truth over tricks; fallen never to get up again.
“How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!” Isaiah 14:12.
Thank you father for the triumph of the wisdom & power of God over the ticks of the devil. No harm nor hurt is permitted, I am preserved by your power and wisdom of my lord and saviour Jesus Christ.
