Imparting life to the nations, one person at a time

August 13: Taking Authority

“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony.”

– Revelations 12: 11

Read: I John 5:4; Ephesians 4:27; James 4:7


I believe you know these truths already but the Holy Spirit wants me to say them to you again. You are created in the image of Almighty God. You are not an accident. God formed you for a Divine purpose he had in mind before the foundations of the world. You are more than a conqueror. You are a priest unto God, translated from the kingdom of darkness to manifest the glory of God to your generation. You are a winner not a loser. Believe it, live it, speak it, write it, tell it, actualize it, expect it because it is the truth! It is not enough to recognize the enemy’s wiles. We must be able to counter attack. We also must have a strategy. You are already anointed by God to overcome the devil. What to do: (1) Identify your own doors (2) Recognize the Tempter (3) Don’t give him any room by considering his suggestions (4) Since this is your door, you must become a student of the bible in this area and be well armed with verses. Then resist him by saying, “It is written.” (5) Say ‘I plead the blood Jesus’ when you see him coming. (6) Pray in your prayer language (Tongues). Also recognize your most vulnerable moments i.e. points of major change, need. Refuse to make any major decisions at such times. Let the season pass and then make your decision.
