Faith Overcomes

Above all, taking
the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts
of the wicked one
(Ephesians 6:16).
  
It’s the shield of faith that quenches all the fiery
darts that the enemy throws at you. We need to remind ourselves regularly that
we don’t wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the dark hosts of Satan.
He has a legal right to rule over the unsaved and will also assert his
influence over believers who don’t know and act on the word. Jesus has given us
authority over them!
 
Satan has the ability to put a thought in your mind and
place a feeling on your body. But he can’t touch you if make a decision to live
by the word! When thoughts come that disagree with the Word, refuse to think
them. When feelings come that disagree with the word, don’t live by them. Our
authority over Satan and his emissaries comes by walking by faith in the Word
of God.
 
When Satan tempted Jesus in the wilderness, Jesus
responded over and over again with it is
written.
And that’s the way we’re to deal with the devil today.
 
When thoughts of doubt and fear come, respond with it is written. When feelings of sickness
attack, respond with it is written. When
circumstances seem unrelenting and defeat seems inevitable, respond with it is written!
 
The victory that over comes the world is our faith. And
faith is acting on and speaking the Word of God in the face of negative
circumstances. Act on God’s Word in every area of life today. Refuse to dwell
on the negative thoughts that come. Act on God’s Word in spite of feelings that
tell you you’re not going to make it. Greater is He who is in you than He who
is in the world! Remember that all things are possible with God, and all things
are possible to him who believes!
