Daily Read - Judges 15:1-16:31; John 2:1-25; Psalm 103:1-22; Proverbs 14:17-19
The evil bow down before the good,
and the wicked at the gates of the righteous.
Evil is not to be feared. I stripped the enemy of all authority and he remains powerless to move against you unless you agree with his lies. Relentlessly, he tries to tempt you to believe his lies and distortions about your identity. He chips away at it knowing if he can keep you paralyzed in a place of weakness, he wins.
The last thing he wants is for you to discover who you really are in Me and the authority you carry. Armed with this revelation, you not only overcome the enemy’s plans, but you bring irreparable damage to his domain of evil.
You are righteous through the blood of My Son and stand holy in My presence. Evil must bow before you and submit to the power of the Triune God who resides within. Satan cannot stand in My presence. All his schemes, strategies, plots, and plans melt into nothingness in My glory. All wickedness must stop at your gates; it cannot enter unless you open the door and invite it in through sin. If that happens, quickly repent and close the door. The blood of Christ will seal the entrance shut.
You sit in heavenly places with Christ Jesus. I made all enemies His footstool, which means they are also under your feet. Stop viewing yourself from an earthly perspective and start seeing what I see; a power-packed, anointed, good, and righteous one who is unshakeable, unstoppable, and unconquerable! Live as I created you to live and walk as I created you to walk. When you love Me and obey My Word you will live as the head and not the tail ruling and reigning over your circumstances from your heavenly position in Me.
Jesus crushed the head of the serpent under His feet.
There is no better place for Satan than under the sole of your shoe!
Lord Jesus, I fear no evil for You are ever present and the enemy must pass through You to get to me. I rest in the revelation of who I am as Your child and heir. Evil must bow at Your name and all wickedness has no choice, but to submit to Your power that resides in me. I refuse to be intimidated by the lying schemes of the enemy for I live and move from my position seated in heavenly places with You. Amen!
