Accept God’s Grace...Take Authority over the Devil



Accept God's Grace

Ephesians 3:20 NIV

Life is hectic - and if you try to do everything, yourself you will stay exhausted. Rushing and struggling to keep up the pace wears you out physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. But you can make some changes.

First, examine all your activities and allow the Holy Spirit to show you the things that drain your energy and do not produce worthwhile fruit. Then be willing to give them up. You may even have to choose between the good and the best.


Second, learn to receive more of God's grace. Grace is power. His power can help you accomplish more than you could imagine. So accept His help and start enjoying life.



Take Authority over the Devil

1 Peter 5:8

Satan's attacks are fierce in these last days but you do not need to run from his roar. As a child of God, you have the authority to defeat him in the name of Jesus. Satan can attack your mind, will, and emotions. He will attack your body with weariness and all manner of illness. His lies are endless and persistent and he delights in playing on your emotions. But you can learn to discern and aggressively confront every satanic assault, and be victorious over his evil plans.


Exercising authority over the enemy is more than verbal commands… your words and actions must go together. Speaking or praying the Word releases faith, but you must also walk in new levels of obedience. So follow God's plan and put the devil on the run.
