1 John 4:4 – You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.

A Christian has conquered the devil through Christ. 1John 5:4 – For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. You are not going to overcome, you are already an overcomer. But you have to take a stand against the opposition and never give in to pressure. Be bold; be strong because the greater one in you has put you over the enemy and his tricks. Jesus said he has given us the power to tread on snakes and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy and nothing shall by any means hurt us. Luke 10:18-19.

Jesus has won the victory for you but it is your responsibility to enforce it. You have been empowered for victorious life. You are not meant to live life by chance but by design. You are meant to live life from the place of victory, from the mountain top and not from the valley. You are not a victim trying to be a victor, you are a victor the devil is trying to make you doubt your status and make you a victim. You are not going to conquer the devil; you have already conquered the devil and his systems. You are seated with Christ in heavenly places far above all principalities and power. You are superior to the devil. So rise up and take charge.


For further study:
Luke 10:18-19

Personal declaration for the day:
I am already a victor and I will never be a victim.

Questions for you to reflect on:
Are you living life from the mountain top or from the valley below?
