Friday morning, God gave me the blog phrase. I started rejoicing and got encouraged. There has been a lot of evil in this world and in our cities. It can cause fear, anxiety, helplessness, anger, and discouragement. We can do everything we can in the natural. However, to combat evil, we must tap into the supernatural through faith in Jesus and trusting God’s word.
Romans 1:16-17 King James Version: 16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and to the Greek.17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
Galatians 3: 11 King James Version: 11 But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith.
Hebrews 10:38 Easy Read Version: 38 The person who is right with me will live by trusting in me. But I will not be pleased with the one who turns back in fear.”
The devil uses fear to keep us bound, but believers use faith to counteract evil. The wicked flee when no one pursues, but the righteous are bold as a lion (Proverbs 28:1). Instead of running away scared when crime, sickness, disease, or any evil happens in your life, run to it believing and speaking the word of God. What is taunting you like a Goliath in your life day and night? Do like David in 1 Samuel 17. David said, “You come to me with a sword and a spear, but I come to you in the name of the Lord.” David said, “This day (write the date), the Lord will deliver you into my hands.” David used what he had and slayed the giant. Mark 11:24 NIV: Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. It was already yours in the spirit realm when you prayed, so act like it.
Our battle is in the spirit realm when it comes to evil. Ephesians 6:12 12 states, For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. We have to put our spiritual armor on every day. Don’t be like the majority; take your authority!
To overcome what is wicked, faith is the ticket!
Prayer: Lord, thank you for sending your Son Jesus to die for me. Because Jesus conquered evil, I have eternal life and dominion over the earth. I repent for running away in fear when evil comes. I run to my giant and face it head-on without fear, trusting and believing in the word of God. I am more than a conqueror through Jesus Christ! In Jesus’ name! Amen.
