Standing Against the Wiles of Satan
42 Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love Me, for I proceeded forth and came from God; nor have I come of Myself, but He sent Me.43 Why do you not understand My speech? Because you are not able to listen to My word. 44 You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.John 8:42-44
Satan is unrepentantly wicked and will stop at nothing to dissuade and destroy you. He is a thief who comes only to “steal, kill and destroy.” The good news is that we have been given authority over the powers of the enemy.
See Luke 10:19
19 Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.Luke 10:19
11 lest Satan should take advantage of us; for we are not ignorant of his devices.2 Corinthians 2:11
- Praise God for exposing the tricks of the evil one.
- Pray for continued wisdom for church leaders so we don’t fall into the trap of the evil one. See 2 Corinthians 2:11
- Pray for discernment among believers to know when the enemy is at work.
Father in Heaven,
I stand in the place of the authority Christ has given every believer. With that authority and in the name of Jesus Christ I come against every manipulation, lie, wiles
andattacks of the enemy over myself, family and the church of God. I confront the enemy and his cohorts on assignment against your people with the precious blood of Jesus shed for the remission of sins. The devil has no claim over us.
I thank you for victory through the cross of Jesus today and always in Jesus matchless name.
Please don’t forget to repeat at or before bedtime
