"Victory Over The Devil"

"He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil." 1 John 3:8

Do not let the devil have any place in your life. He has no power over you. He is not the greater one. He has been defeated by Jesus/God. He has been defeated twice-- once in heaven and once on earth. He was defeated in the heavenly realm and in the earthly realm. When he tried to have dominion in heaven and establish a throne above God, he was defeated. "I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven." (Luke 10:18) When he tried to have dominion in earth and establish a throne above mankind whom God had given dominion of the earth to, he was defeated. "Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross. And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it." (Colossians 2:14,15)

Jesus has defeated the devil in every way possible, in every realm and on every level. And when He returns He will enforce that victory once and for all forever. Then satan will be cast out and will not be found in the New Heaven and New Earth.

So today, enforce the victory in your own life that Jesus has won. He gave that victory to you and He intends for you to walk and live in it. Don't keep giving into the devil, don't keep believing his lies, don't keep falling for his tricks, don't give in to his temptations. He continually tries to set up a throne over your life- a throne of bondage, remorse, addiction, anger, condemnation, and so on. But he has no authority over you. If you have surrendered your life to Jesus, He is the only one who has authority and lordship over you.

Have a great day. The devil has been defeated by Jesus in every area, so don't give him any authority in your life.
