Victory in Jesus

“The weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds.” – 2 Corinthians 10:4 NKJV
Job’s trials began with an encounter between God and Satan (Job 1:6-12). But even though this was a spiritual encounter, Job himself never seemed to approach his challenges from a spiritual perspective. It is intriguing to consider how he might have approached these trials had he been equipped with the spiritual gifts and discernment of the believer.
The Bible makes clear that life changes when we are born again, when we follow Jesus and are filled with His Spirit, when we employ the spiritual weapons He has given us, and when we exercise the authority He has given us “over all the power of the enemy” (Luke 10:19).
As Christians, we have the blood of Jesus, the Word of God, and the power of the Spirit at our disposal. Job seemed to know nothing about these weapons. But believers have so much more knowledge and more powerful weapons.
Now we can use His blood to bind Satan’s ability and power in our lives. Now we can be aggressive and proactive when we experience spiritual attacks.
Today, as you face the challenges of life, remember the reality of spiritual warfare. Remember the power that God has given you. You don’t have to be “ignorant” of the devices of Satan (2 Corinthians 2:11). Even before you face attacks, put on the “whole armor of God” (Ephesians 6:10-18). Be bold in Jesus’ name. Declare victory!
Father, I bind the power of Satan over myself and my family in Jesus’ name. Because of His blood, I declare victory. In His name, amen.
2 Corinthians 10
