As a child of God, you must understand that the devil is an opportunist: he only takes advantage of loopholes that you give him but no matter what he puts up against you, you will always be victorious.

1 Peter 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.

You have to be on guard as a soldier who is a child of God knowing that you are living in the enemy’s territory. So, don’t live carelessly but become conscious of everything you do; in your words, thoughts, and actions.

Satan will never face you conventionally (face to face) but he will come through deception, lies, and falsehood and if you are not alert, you will fall for his deceptions.

Everything in our lives begins as a seed (thoughts) and many of us have allowed the enemy to plant his thoughts in our minds which have eventually become strongholds which he uses to attack us.

Romans 12:2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what [is] that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

There has to be a constant renewal of your mind until your thoughts about an issue align with God’s thoughts (His Word).

You must take conscious and deliberate actions to train your mind to be in sync with the thoughts of God.

John 14:30 I will no longer talk much with you, for the ruler of this world is coming, and he has nothing in Me.

You have to seriously address the thoughts and self-talk that you process in your mind because they are what the enemy uses to launch his attack on your life.

The Word of God must become the dearest asset that you hold onto amidst all contradictions that the enemy throws at you.

When the Word dominates your thought process, imagination, and reasoning, the devil will put his tail between his legs and run from your life.

2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore, if anyone [is] in Christ, [he is] a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.

You must understand that you are a new creation and be vigilant to participate in things that build your capacity in the spirit and enable you to counter any showdown that the devil presents.

When your breakthrough is around the corner, that’s when the enemy stirs up sorrow and battles to destruct you but stay focused. Keep your eyes on Jesus, and keep the Word in the centre of your heart (Hebrews 2:14-15).

Isaiah 54:16-17 ” Behold, I have created the blacksmith Who blows the coals in the fire, Who brings forth an instrument for his work; And I have created the spoiler to destroy. No weapon formed against you shall prosper…

No weapon formed against you shall prosper because no matter the attack of the enemy, what you have is at a higher level than what He is throwing at you;

Read Revelations 12:11

The Lord supernaturally intervenes in your life. He is so much committed to your success in all areas of your life because it is your life that brings honour to His name. May you walk into your victory and manifest your success by the Spirit of the Lord.
