Defeating the Devil

The devil brings disaster, mayhem, confusion, hurt, terror, chaos, deception, distraction and defeat. Likewise, the list of negative connotations could go on and on. Simply put, he is like a thief who comes to steal, kill and destroy: On the other hand, Jesus came that you might have life more abundantly” (John 10:10).

Notably, there are many people today who are living a life of defeat, because they are so overwhelmed with tribulations, and they have somehow lost their zeal and faith in the Lord. Consequently, losing their zeal and faith in the Lord have prevented them from successfully defeating the devil.

scripture

In your weakest moment, that is when you have to be on the look-out for the devil. He likes to strike when you are down and out, as this is the point where you are most vulnerable to his attacks. He also uses great disguise in his tricks to defeat you. With this in mind, you have to be fully aware of the devil’s trick and distraction, in order to know how he operates, so you can defeat him.

In Ephesians 6:10-18, the Apostle Paul gave some very astounding encouragements and several key tools to defeat the devil. He advised you to put on the whole armor of God so that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil, meaning his tricks and tactics. This is so, because you wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against the principalities; against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Spiritual Warfare

The devil is a spirit; therefore, flesh and blood cannot defeat him. He was cast out of Heaven along with other fallen angels. The devil apart from utilizing fallen angels, utilizes evil spirits around, as well as humans who fall prey to his whims.

By and large, the devil has a lot of forces and powers to work for him. Alternatively, the Holy Spirit is a spirit, and God has not given you a spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7). Considering this, the Holy Spirit will help you to fight against the devil, as this is not a fist fight, but a spiritual fight.

Fear Not!

nofear

Fear ties you up; discouragement ties you down.

Fear says “you’d better not do it”; discouragement says, “it can’t be done.”

Fear trips you up; discouragement keeps you from getting up.

Fear wants you not to begin; discouragement wants you to quit.

Fear avoids the battle; discouragement throws in the towel.

Fear gives you the chills; discouragement gives you the blues.

Fear shuts you down; discouragement shuts you off.

Fear paralyzes; discouragement demoralizes.

Fear waves the flag of danger; discouragement waves the flag of defeat.

Fear deters; discouragement disqualifies.

Fear wants you to worry about the future; discouragement says you have no future.
