We can’t allow Satan to have his run on and in our lives; we must learn how to fight back. Some might say how can I fight back or I have no clue as how to fight back. The answer to that answer is really quite simple and the bible tells us how to do that. Jesus said it best when He was speaking with Peter and after a comment by Peter Jesus said, “get thee behind me Satan” (Luke 4:8). The answer is clear and we must learn how to take authority in our own lives.
Our life is not just to be led by the world and we just go with the flow, if we do that we are headed for sure destruction. God has given us the authority through Jesus Christ and His death on the cross to take hold of our own life and speak to that which is out to destroy us. Satan has no power over us and that is what we must grasp ahold of, SATAN HAS NO POWER OVER US. If you say that he does it is only because you have allowed it to be so, he did not show up one day and take over and there was nothing you could do, you let him in and you gave him the power.
The awesome thing about the whole story is if you will surrender your life to Jesus Christ the power and authority that is in Him will then be in you. When you speak to the evil one in the name of Jesus he must flee from you. Satan may not know who you are, but he definitely knows who Jesus is and when we take that Christ given authority and set it against him he will flee. God has given us that power and authority and He expects us to use it.
I would think that we would be getting tired of things not going right or this sickness or that family problem and want to make a stand against it. I am tired of it and my answer is simple, to the point and with all of the authority given to me through Christ Jesus and that stand is this, GET THEE BEHIND ME SATAN AND I PROCLAIM IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS CHRIST YOU RETURN TO ME EVERYTHING YOU HAVE TAKEN. YOU ARE NOT WELCOME IN MY LIFE, IN MY FAMILY AND IN THE NAME OF JESUS I COMMAND YOU TO LEAVE.
You might say who, do you think you are saying that and my reply will be I am a child of God and I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. The power and authority given to Christ has been given to me through His love for me. I will serve the Lord all the days of my life and though I might stumble and fall, I will pick myself up and I will press in and move forward never giving up because He has not given up on me.
Don’t you think that now is the time to surrender and accept Jesus? If you don’t know Him as your Lord and Savior it is so very easy. Just say in your heart, Jesus forgive me and come into my life. Father, change me from the inside out and take those things from me that don’t belong. I accept you as the Lord of my life and as my Savior. In the Name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
If you prayed that prayer and meant it from your heart you are saved and all of the power and authority of God is given to you. You now have control of your life and the evil one cannot stand against you. I did not say it would be easy but you now have the One in your life who can take on the battle for you.
If you accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior, tell someone make it know that from this day forward you are following Jesus. Get yourself into a bible believing church and begin to read the bible Read the Gospels and the Psalms and Proverbs and ask God to teach you and show you what you need to do. God will direct your steps and He will keep His hand upon you. He promised that He will never leave you nor forsake you (Hebrews 13:5). God will always be there with you and that you can count on. God loves you with a love that is so deep and so true, that you cannot phantom how or why. Just know that His love for you is never ending.
