Leave the Devil No Choice - August 12, 2016

Scripture says, “Put on the full armor of God, that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes” (Ephesians 6:11). Your battle—your real battle—is with your archenemy, the Devil. He has held this stronghold in your life for years. You’ve tried everything to overcome it— discipline; self-help books; pop-culture gurus; but nothing helps.

But now you come in God’s power with God at center stage and Jesus in your heart. You come not with hope of a possible victory, but with assurance of complete victory. You sing songs of redemption and declare scriptures of triumph. “He is not here; for He is risen” (Matthew 28:6). “We are more than conquerors through Christ” (Romans 8:37).  “I can do all things through Christ” (Philippians 4:13).  As you do, the demons will begin to scatter. They have no choice but to leave. The Devil cannot stand to stay where God is praised and pondered. Call upon God and leave the Devil no choice!

From God is With You Every Day
