Satan doesn’t want you to read any further. How do I know? Because this is the second time I have written it. I had completed it, proofed it – hit “post” and it all vanished.
So be aware, it just might stir something inside you. Something radical. I have prayed that it would.
Something’s a brewin’ inside me…
It gets me so fired up that I want to go around shaking people, grasping them by both ears and then YELLING in their faces…
Something that makes me literally quiver with excitement and anticipation…
Victory is ours!
No weapon of Satan can stand against us, there is nothing to fear!
The battle belongs to the Lord!
Imagine, just imagine, what it would look like if the people of God stopped cowering in fear. If we stood together, tenaciously proclaiming the victory of God.
Satan, that liar, that great deceiver, who HATES US, who HATES our families, how he would despise that! How angry it would make him, if we dared to realize that we can BEAT him.
Read of God’s victories, my friends. Read of them in His powerful word! He didn’t just win. He won BIG, DECIDEDLY!
Then read of His promises to US. It takes my breath away:
I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you… and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength he exerted when heraised Christ from the dead
Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more that all we ask or imagine, according to his powerthat is at work within us
In all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us
Do you feel unconquerable?
(Or do you feel defeated? That is a LIE OF SATAN!)
Are you living victoriously?
Please, please, I beg you, pray this prayer with me. On your knees, hands held high, shout it if you dare. Summon your inner warrior; summon your righteous anger against all the pain, all the fear, all the suffering in this world.
Holy and Great God,
Light a fire inside me. Let it consume me. Consume me with your power. No more, NO MORE! will I cower in the darkness. No more will I allow Satan to have a foothold in my thoughts. For you have armed me, I cannot be defeated! Go before me always, and open my eyes to your victory! Today I stand; I stand on your side. Consume your people. I will be courageous.
In the perfect and powerful name of Jesus, who is above all things, Amen
People of God, I beg you, RISE UP
