February 12, 2021 Spirit Meat Devotional : Topic – GET GOD’S PERSPECTIVE OF THE DEVIL – 1 John 3:8
Another critical factor to consider in order to turn your breakdowns to breakthroughs is to have a right perspective of God and the devil. Satan has been operating in the lives of men for long and many have filled themselves with a formidable amount of wrong information about the devil’s abilities and operations. This is to an extent that when they became born again, they transferred the wrong thinking and beliefs into their Christian life. And because they have not bothered to dig deep into the word of God, they continue with their wrong opinions. The devil has deceived many people with these lies such that they have become more afraid of him. What is making you fearful of the devil is what is keeping you from your next level.
Get God’s perspective of the devil. Never allow the devil to give you his view of himself and if he does, don’t accept it. Get your mind renewed with the truth from the word of God and be set free from the lies of the devil.
Satan is a completely defeated enemy. It would have been absurd for any of the children of Israel to be looking over their shoulders in fear of Pharaoh and his chariots after they had perished in the sea. Jesus actually and eternally destroyed the devil. Build into your consciousness, the fact and reality that Satan is destroyed as far as you are concerned. This consciousness will build your spirit for breakthroughs. If there is still a sense of bondage in your consciousness, you will never have a complete breakthrough.
PRAYER: Lord, I reject every lie of the devil that I have accepted in the past. Holy Spirit, purge me and renew my mind.
