Sometimes we just need to give ourselves a shake and talking to so that we will stand up and take authority. Unfortunately far too often we let things come at us and the consequence is that we feel like a road train has just driven over the top of us.
It’s those times when I say it’s time to get feisty. Yes feisty! You are not a wimp, a bump on a log or someone to be trivalled with. Whats more if you know Jesus then you are a co-heir with Him and a child of the most High God. You are not someone to be messed with.
“And if children, heirs also, heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ”. (Romans 8:17)
Sometimes we need to get up on the inside and remind ourselves who we are. We are forgiven, worthy, washed clean, and have the same power that raised Jesus from the dead residing on the inside of us. We are devil stomping, kick butt individuals that every evil force should be afraid of. You know when we get out of bed in the morning the devil and his lot should be afraid because we are up!
We have been given all authority in Heaven and on Earth. Jesus gave that to us, and He gave it to us to use. So what are we doing getting ourselves run over by emotional turmoil, sickness, lack, family strife, and every other thing the enemy tries to think up to attack us with?
There are times, as my Mum says where we need to shout at our enemy and tell him to clear off. She testifies that feistiness is what saved her life against aggressive cancer and released God’s healing power throughout her body. If she had been passive she probably wouldn’t be here today.
When we are being harassed by evil then it not the time to be passive. It’s the time to stand in the reality of who we are in Christ. That doesn’t mean we get into striving. It means we walk in who we are, knowing God has us. If we are not sure how to do that then right now is a great time to start discovering through God’s word who we are in Christ. To find a place to get along side other people who know Jesus and learn how to walk in authority and discover who God says we are and our future with Him.
Make a decision today to not be passive and a push over any longer. Don’t be fooled anymore by the antics of the evil one. Instead ask God to show you what and who is the real enemy and the root cause of any stress and trouble in your life. Then stand up and use your authority in Jesus and watch the devil flee.
For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. (Ephesians 6:12)
“The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds” (2 Corinthians 10:4)
“Submit yourselves to God. Resist the devil and he shall flee from you”. (James 4:7)
Prayer: Jesus would you please help me to understand who you say I am and the authority I have been given when I know you. I stand against every evil attack and thing that’s trying to steal from my life and choose to walk in your peace and blessings today. In Jesus name Amen.
