Resist the devil and he will flee from you.
You are becoming wise to his ways and his tactics. For you have this treasure in an earthen vessel, the Holy Spirit dwells in you, so that the excellency of the power will be from God and not of us.
God has given you power, for The Holy Spirit is upon you and He dwells in you.
“Is not My Word like fire?” says The LORD. “Is not My Word like a mighty hammer that smashes the rocks?”
The imaginations your enemy tries to put into your mind is a tactic to distract you from who you are in Christ. You have been empowered and the enemy tries to hide it by blinding you to the truth and the reality of it..
Open your eyes.
Open your ears.
Take hold of how you listen.
Take hold of how you comprehend what you hear.
Cast down imaginations and everything that is exalting itself against what The LORD has been saying to you.
If your thoughts are riling you up, its time to cast them down.
The Word of The LORD is near you; even upon your lips.
Speak out in your own hearing what ,”The Word That Is Sent” is saying to you. This is a weapon of your warfare that is not carnal, but mighty in God to the pulling down of strongholds.
Casting down what your adversary the devil is trying to roar into your mind. They are imaginations that exalt themselves against the knowledge that God has been giving you. Bring into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.
In the fear of The LORD there is strong confidence and His children will dwell in safety for The LORD is saying: “I will never leave you, I will never forsake you. I have not forgotten My children who have put their trust in Me.
My thoughts toward you are thoughts of peace, not of evil. I give to you a future, and hope. It is a hope that will not put you to shame.”
Now be confident of this very thing; That He Who has begun this great and marvelous work in you will complete it until the Day of Jesus Christ…..
“As for me, I am filled with power, with the Spirit of The LORD, and with justice, and might.” Micah 3:8a.
