Wisdom For The Day Devotional 3 November 2022 By Bishop Mike Okonkwo – The Devil Has No Power To Stop You
TOPIC: The Devil Has No Power To Stop You (TREM Devotional 3 November 2022)
“What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?” Romans 8:31 (KJV)
Whatever God has promised you will come to full manifestation. That you have not received the answer does not make God a liar. Learn to trust God, even when you are under pressure. The scripture tells us in the book of Luke 10:19: “Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”
All things work together for the good of them that love God. Nothing works against the believer. Not even the bad. And not the ugly. Everything works together for our good. We have authority! The devil doesn’t have power over us. He has been defeated. The book Colossians 2:15 says: “And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.”
Look at it in the AMPC version. “[God] disarmed the principalities and powers that were ranged against us and made a bold display and public example of them, in triumphing over them in Him and in it [the cross].” (Colossians 2:15 AMPC). The devil has been defeated.
The Passion Translation of the bible says, “Then Jesus made a public spectacle of all the powers and principalities of darkness, stripping away from them every weapon and all their spiritual authority and power to accuse us. And by the power of the cross, Jesus led them around as prisoners in a procession of triumph. He was not their prisoner; they were His. The devil is our prisoner! The devil has no power to stop your manifestation!
But one of our problems is closed mouths. A closed mouth is a closed destiny. If God has said, we ought to begin to say. The devil knows that whenever God says anything, it is a done deal! He understands this principle. That is why the devil doesn’t attack anything other than what God has said. Your part is to keep standing on and keep declaring what God has said.
