Day 14—Aug 18, 2018
Believing a lie empowers the liar.
THE ONLY WAY that the enemy becomes big to us is when we believe that he is. This is one of the key tactics he has aimed at the Spirit-empowered body of Christ. He shudders because of Who lives within you. He knows your potential, because He saw Jesus’ works. Jesus did not bring deliverance to demonized people because He was God. Jesus Himself reveals the supernatural Source of His chain-breaking power by explaining “if I cast out demons by the Spirit of God, surely the kingdom of God has come upon you” (Matt. 12: 28). It was the anointing of the Holy Spirit that gave Jesus the ability to set the captives free (see Luke 4: 18). Likewise, it is the anointing upon you that empowers you to bring freedom to captives. As long as you believe the devil is bigger than he really is and that the darkness is so thick, so strong, and so powerful, it will become difficult for you to confidently draw from the Spirit of God within you and release deliverance to those in need.
DAILY SCRIPTURE READING MATTHEW 12: 28
PRAYER Your Spirit empowers me to heal the sick and deliver the oppressed. I have no power in and of myself—I am completely dependent on Your Presence within me to accomplish the supernatural. The works of darkness are no match for the Greater One Who lives inside of me!
