The attack of the devil is inevitable. The amount of devastation, however, is determined by you and I. Once we receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour of our lives, we are set free from that penalty of sin! Isn't that wonderful? (If you don't know what that penalty is, read Deuteronomy 28!)
We are no longer susceptible to an attack that will wipe us out. As a believer, God has given you all authority over the devil and his schemes (Luke 10:19). The devil's end game isn't just to STEAL or KILL but to DESTROY. He wants to destroy you and your family and everyone who comes after them. If Satan had it his way, the attack on your body would be the beginning. He wants to attack your mind and leave you paralysed with fear. That fear will then manifest itself as depression. That depression will then jump on your family members. The depression will be too much for your child to handle so they'll turn to alcohol or drugs. And just like that, you have a family completely enslaved to the power of sin by ONE attack on your body!
The devil has done enough damage. Take back what belongs to you! How? THE WORD OF GOD. That dumb devil may throw a bomb your way but The Word will ALWAYS diffuse it. The Word deactivates the devastation in your life. Search the scriptures on joy, blessing or healing. The Word isn't described as a Sword (Ephesians 6:17) for fun. It's a Sword because we use it to chop down every imagination or thought that would come against God's Word. No more devastation! YOU ARE FREE!
" Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ" (2 Cor. 10:5)
