You’re Protected From Evil (3)

“I have given you authority…to overcome all the power of the enemy” Lk 10:19

Have you dabbled in the occult and now you’re wondering what to do? Repent and renounce it. “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us…and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” (1 Jn 1:9) Note the words “all unrighteousness.” It doesn’t matter what you have done; there are no big sins and little sins. God forgives them all! Learn from your past, leave it, and don’t look back. 

“We know that anyone born of God does not continue to sin; the One who was born of God keeps them safe, and the evil one cannot harm them.” (1 Jn 5:18) Is Satan powerful? Yes, but Jesus is all powerful! He said, “All power in heaven and on earth is given unto me,” then He delegated that power to you, “I have given you authority…to overcome all the power of the enemy.” (Lk 10:19) God has given you three powerful weapons of protection:

(1) The Sword. “Take the sword of the spirit, which is the word of God” (Eph 6:17) Satan has the advantage when you don’t know what God says, but he flees when you stand on the Scriptures. 

(2) The Shield. “Taking the shield of faith…you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.” (Eph 6:16) Your faith is a protective shield against the arrows of doubt and fear Satan directs at you.

(3) The Spirit. “You shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you.” (Acts 1:8) Positioned in Christ and filled with the Holy Spirit, you’re more than a match for the forces of evil that surround you.
