Day 12—January 17, 2019
Never at any time has Satan been a threat to God. God is ultimate in power and might, beauty and glory. He is eternal with unlimited measures of all that is good. He is uncreated—has always existed. Satan is limited in every way.
THE DEVIL IS a created being that you have authority over. Satan has never been a threat to God. Heaven is not intimidated by the works of darkness. If God is not threatened by the enemy, you should not be either. In and of yourself, you may be no match against the powers of darkness. On the other hand, you are not waging warfare from a posture of human being to spiritual being. Of course the spiritual being will always triumph. The truth is, in Christ you are a new creation! The Victorious One actually lives within you and this means that “greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world” (1 John 4:4). God is quite literally without equal. He is uncreated—has always existed. Your enemy, satan, is limited in every way. He is ever at the disadvantage. God gave him his gifts and abilities at his own creation. There has never been a battle between God and satan. The entire realm of darkness could be forever wiped out with a word. But God chose to defeat him through those made in His own likeness—those who would worship God by choice.
Daily Scriptures: 1 JOHN 4:1-4, DEUT. 33:26-27
PRAYER Jesus, it is amazing to me that You would choose to include me in the battle against the enemy here on earth. Thank You for equipping me with Your Holy Spirit power and with angelic help and protection so I don’t need to be afraid. I’ll gladly stand against the enemy with Your Word and the power of Your Presence. You are the Victorious One and You live inside of me.”
