Take your Authority Back by Nina Keegan

 It is only natural for us to encounter others we may not get along with, and those we may consider to be "enemies." It is very important for us however, to remember that they are also just humans too. Remember that our number one enemy is satan. He takes form in many ways, and is spreading evil all over the world today- we cannot let him lead us into temptation to commit sins, or be filled with fear and unforgiveness! We must forgive and bless each other, and turn to God to strengthen our will against all evil.

The power and authority of the Name of JESUS rightfully belongs to us all as born-again Christians, and He expects us to use it! Before Jesus ascended to be seated at the right hand of the Father, He said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me” Matthew 28:18, He has the authority!

What did He do with it? He assigned it to us when He said, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover” (Mark 16:15, 17-18, NKJV).
Jesus himself was tempted with evil and by the enemy… Here is his example that we can follow… 
Remember as Jesus is,so are we in the world!
1John 4:17

Matthew 4:11
After being baptized by John the Baptist, Jesus fasted for 40 days and nights in the Judaean Desert. During this time, Satan appeared to Jesus and tried to tempt him. Jesus having REFUSED each temptation, Satan THEN departed and Jesus returned to Galilee to BEGIN his ministry.

We all know that Satan is pure evil… We know that he tries to wreak havoc into our lives by trying to thwart the plans that God has for us. Notice that Jesus’ ministry only began after he had the tools he needed to overcome satan... WE HAVE THOSE SAME TOOLS OF AUTHORITY!
And I believe for many of you that the enemies schemes are trying to hold you back from all that God wants you to do!  

 I just want to remind you all that the enemy does NOT have an endless bag of tricks… !

 He is not creative and he will continually try to use the same old tricks and lies time and time again… The key is they only work when we believe them!!

The above Scripture shows that satan harshly tempted Jesus, but it also says that Jesus rejected every temptation... And I am sure that the enemy had his deck stacked ,he probably brought out his absolute best  trying to bring down Jesus… But when he finally ran out and was unsuccessful… Only then…
did he depart!!! 

  If Jesus had fallen victim to satan’s lies, and if satans plans were working… He never would’ve left Jesus alone... that’s what he does,  he over stays and he over plays his hand... he would’ve stayed as long as his onslaught of fiery darts was working.

  But the Bible says we can resist him at the onset… We don’t have to wait around for him to keep reaching into his  bag to pull out the next lie he wants to spew in our ear…

We have complete and total authority over every plan and scheme over the enemy… Your victory has already been bought and paid for on the cross… It’s time to remember who you are and whose you are!! 

You are a child of the most high God!! You are an heir to the throne! You are a blood bought believer and you are seated at the right hand of the Father next to Jesus… And from there, from that beautiful seat… You can look down and rule and reign in life…and  know that the enemy is a footstool under your feet! 
If God is for you, who can dare be against you? The Bible says that no weapon formed against you can ever prosper!

We must be preemptive to the strikes of the enemy… The first rule of any war is to know your enemy… When we know his tactics, the same old song and dance routine... we can be prepared in advance for them… By knowing the word of God, you have all the power to speak over these assaults and cause them to be canceled and reversed in the name of Jesus..
Put on your full armor… You have complete protection against these assaults… And when the enemy knows that your armor is on and that you are boldly speaking the Word and declaring the name of Jesus… He will be running scared!!!! 

God inhabits the praises of his people… Let his praises  continually be on your lips… We cannot worry and worship at the same time… And the enemy hates when we worship!!!

It’s time to fight the good fight of faith and stay prepared for the battle… And when we do all that we know to do… That’s when God steps in! BE STILL! 

Exodus 14:14
The LORD himself will fight for you. You won't have to lift a finger in your defense!"

The Bible says when the enemy comes in like a flood, God will raise a standard against him… Isaiah 59:15

  So why Would we let the enemy mess with us one more day… ? It’s time to receive the comfort God has for the brokenhearted, it’s time for the captives to be released and the prisoners to be set free!  
 Isaiah 61 says 
The time of the Lord‘s favor has come and with it, God’s  anger against our enemies.. he will give us beauty for ashes and praise instead of despair!

James 4

Things to Avoid

      1What is the source of quarrels and conflicts among you? Is not the source your pleasures that wage war in your members? 2You lust and do not have; so you commit murder. You are envious and cannot obtain; so you fight and quarrel. You do not have because you do not ask. 3You ask and do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, so that you may spend it on your pleasures. 4You adulteresses, do you not know that friendship with the world is hostility toward God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. 5Or do you think that the Scripture speaks to no purpose: “He jealously desires the Spirit which He has made to dwell in us”? 6But He gives a greater grace. Therefore it says, “GOD IS OPPOSED TO THE PROUD, BUT GIVES GRACE TO THE HUMBLE.” 7Submit therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. 8Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded. 9Be miserable and mourn and weep; let your laughter be turned into mourning and your joy to gloom. 10Humble yourselves in the presence of the Lord, and He will exalt you.

John 8:44 there is no truth in him for he is the father of lies( speaking of satan)
