In Him Only

The enemy doesn’t want us to know the grace and the power of God that only comes through faith in Jesus’ Christ finished work; in Jesus Christ and Him Crucified.  satan would rather us chase, research and worry about fighting him than to rest in God’s peace.  Knowing the devil’s works more than knowing the work of the Lord, in fact keeps us from abiding in His peace.   We end up knowing how powerful satan is and not realizing the sovereignty and power of our God.  The moment we realize Jesus’ has already fought this battle and won, we realize His peace.  We are under God’s Providence and He has the final authority.  Our commission is to preach the Gospel, lay hands on the sick and cast demons out of PEOPLE in Jesus name.  There in lies our authority.  “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.  Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.”  Ephesians 6:12-13.   What is bound on earth must already be declared unlawful in Heaven.  Being aware of the enemy’s works is important but don’t allow him to bait you into chasing him instead of Jesus.  We are called to be disciples of Jesus and to withstand in the evil day with our shield of faith, belt of truth, helmet of salvation, sandals of peace and the sword of the Spirit.  It is in Him that our victory lies.  Purposefully renew your mind this morning that Jesus has fought and finished your battle, purposefully place your faith in His finished work on the Cross and rest – rest in His peace and quit trying to fight the devil yourself.  We must know His power, our authority and rest in His victory.   Donna Warren
