” . . . rule, then, in the midst of Your foes.” (Psalm 110: 2 AMP)
Precious Disciple of Jesus Christ, the Daystar,
As followers of Jesus Christ, we have been given victory over Satan. The Word tells us that “greater is He Who is in us than he who is in the world” (1 John 4: 4).
Why is it, then, that so many hristians are living defeated lives? The answer is that they do not recognize their power and authority in Christ.
Our verse this week commands us to “rule” in the midst of our enemies. What does it mean to rule? It means to be in charge, to call the shots, to hold the reins.
Are you ruling in the midst of your enemies (your trials, your problems, your heartaches?) If not, wake up and recognize the power Christ has given you. That power is in His Word.
When facing the enemy, take the offensive. Run after him, piercing him repeatedly with the Sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God.
Remember: Satan is afraid of you, not the other way around. When he looks at you, he sees Jesus! Satan has no power other than what you give him through your fear.
So, instead of high-tailing it when the devil attacks, turn on him with all th fury of a mother protecting her babies. Let him know that you’re the ruler of your domain, and that, as ruler, you won’t permit him to steal, kill, or destroy anything that pertains to you. Act like the conqueror you are in Christ.
Your sister in Christ,
