For a while now I have found myself saying these words “the enemy is defeated, God knows it, I know it and satan knows it” I would say this when I was praying into different situation, my family, DOK etc. Then the other morning when I was sitting on my verandah having a cup of coffee and just looking at the trees enjoying my Heavenly Father’s company, I felt like He said to me, this is what you need to tell my daughters “THE ENEMY IS DEFEATED, I (GOD) KNOWS IT, I (you) KNOW IT, and satan knows it”, as I pondered this I realised that when we talk about demonic stuff happening in our lives we refer to it as being under attack, if we are under attack then we need to defend ourselves, but if satan is a defeated foe, then we do not need to defend ourselves, we need to attack him!!!!! how do we attack him, by DECLARING GODS WORD, satan has to flee when we quote God’s Word.
Ephesians 6:10-18 talks about the Amour of God. I want to draw your attention to verse 10 and 11 “Finally be strong in the Lord an in His mighty power. Put on the full armour of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.” note it does not say “put on the armour of God, so that you can defend yourself” NO it says ” TAKE YOUR STAND“.
satan can only attack you if you give him permission, he rely’s on you being defensive instead of standing on the truth of God’s Word.
