RESIST THE DEVIL

🔥 *ANCIENT WORDS DEVOTION*🔥

📆 *31/7/2018*
📜 *—James 4:7*
_*Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.*_

🛐If you’ve been crying and asking God to run the devil out of your life, stop! The Bible says you’re the one who’s supposed to overcome the devil.

👊How? By resisting him. By rebelling against him when he tells you to do something and doing what God says instead! When satan tells you some lie, contradict him with the Word of God. Oppose him. This verse says when you do that, he’ll flee from you. He’ll “run as in terror.”

💣That means everywhere you go, as you walk in faith and oppose the devil, darkness is pushed back.

✋So start pushing back that darkness. You can do it! The life of God is within you. Jesus Himself is living inside you. Everywhere you go, He goes. Every problem that rises up against you, every evil spirit that tries to influence your life, is coming up against God when it comes up against you.

✝All you need to do is become conscious of that. Begin now living your life moment by moment, knowing that the light of God is in you. The Word of God is in you. The Spirit of God is in you.

👉Live knowing that Jesus, the Son of God, is in you. Then watch the devil run!

MY GOD – MY DELIVERER

🔥 *ANCIENT WORDS DEVOTION*🔥

📆 *30/7/2018*
📜 *—Psalm 32:7*
_*Thou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance.*_

🛡In this day and time, trouble seems to surround us on every side. If it’s not a failing economy, it’s a failing business, a failing marriage or failing health. Yet, in the midst of seemingly overwhelming problems, God has promised to deliver us.

☝Let me give you a word of advice though. _*If you want God to your trouble, then you must let Him be God and LORD of your heart. God honors those who honor Him.*_ So, if you’re facing some problems today, don’t just start kicking and screaming and begging Him to save you from them. Honor Him by going to His Word and doing what He says you should do.

♥ _*Psalm 34*_ is a good place to start. It says, for example, that you should seek God _*(verse 4).*_ As you seek Him, He will deliver you from the things that threaten you.

✌Secondly, it instructs you to cry out to the Lord. He will save you out of all your troubles _*(verse 6).*_

👏Next it tells you to fear the Lord. If you don’t know how to do that, _*verses 11-14*_ will tell you exactly what you need to know: You must keep from speaking evil and deceit; depart from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it.

♥Remember, _*if you want God to be God in your trouble, let Him be God of your heart.*_ When you do that, all of heaven will get involved in your deliverance—and your triumph will be guaranteed.

THE SUPERNATURAL LIFE

🔥 *ANCIENT WORDS DEVOTION*🔥

📆 *27/7/2018*
📜 *—Exodus 14:15-16*
_*And the Lord said unto Moses, Wherefore criest thou unto me?… Lift thou up thy rod, and stretch out thine hand over the sea, and divide it: and the children of Israel shall go on dry ground through the midst of the sea.*_

🌹If you hang around God very much, it won’t be long before you’ll start wanting to do things the world considers supernatural. You’ll start wanting to lay hands on the sick and have them recover. You’ll start wanting to cast out demons. You’ll start wanting to cast mountainous problems into the sea.

👉 “`What’s more, you can do it if you want to!“`

🛠How? Not by jumping out and “trying” to do supernatural things, but by obeying God one step at a time. By doing the things He’s already given you power to do.

♦That’s how it happened with Moses. He didn’t have the power to divide the Red Sea. But he did have the power to stretch his rod out over it. And when he did that in obedience to the Lord’s command, the Holy Spirit did the rest.

👌It will be the same way with you. When you start doing your part, the Holy Spirit will do His and supernatural things will start happening around you.

👏What is your part? _Feeding on the Word. Praying in the spirit. Listening to what the Spirit of God says to you._ As you do those things, as you begin to move as God impresses you to move and take your direction from Him, you’ll flow in the supernatural as naturally as a bird flies in the air.

💡You won’t struggle and strain and try to “part the sea.” You’ll just trust the Lord and stretch out your rod…and watch the miracles roll.

🙏 *PRAYER*🙏
_As I focus my eyes on You daily, I declare that the Supernatural life of my Father flows freely out of me. As Christ is, so am I. Thank You Father in Jesus Christ’s Name. Amen!_

GOD’S ORDER OF CREATION

🔥 *ANCIENT WORDS DEVOTION*🔥

📆 *26/7/2018*

📜 *—Hebrews 11:3*
_*Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the Word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.*_

🌍 *God uses words to create.* He used His Word to “frame” the worlds. Just look in the first chapter of Genesis and count how many times you see the phrase, “And God said.” “And God said, Let there be light: and there was light…. And God said, Let there be a firmament…. And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together…. And God said, Let the earth bring forth…” _*(verses 3, 6, 9, 11).*_

☝God doesn’t do anything without saying it first. _That’s His order of creation._ If you’re smart, you’ll use that mode of operation too. You’ll take His words and speak them out until they take on form and substance and become a reality in your life.

👉“Well, I tried that and it didn’t work. I said, ‘By His stripes I’m healed’ four times and nothing happened.”

♦Big deal. God started saying that Jesus was coming in the Garden of Eden. He said it again in Exodus. He said it again in Numbers and Deuteronomy. He said it in Isaiah and the other prophets. He said it all through the Old Testament, over and over again.

🕎Then after about 4,000 years, the book of John tells us, “The Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us…” (1:14).

✝So if you’ve said you’re healed four times and nothing’s happened, don’t worry about it. Just keep saying it! You might think it’s taking a long time to manifest, but I’ll guarantee you, it won’t take 7,000 years.

⬆Do you want to operate in God’s power? Then use His way of operation. *Speak out His words and let them frame a life full of blessing for you!*

Genesis 1

🙏 *PRAYER*🙏
_Father, I thank You for Your Word which is life for me. By the same order of creation demonstrated in Your Word, I declare that my world is being framed to the will of God. I flow in God’s divine mandate without struggle by the power of the Holy Spirit in Jesus Christ’s Name. Amen!_

STAND FIRM IN THE FAITH

🔥 *ANCIENT WORDS DEVOTION*🔥

📆 *25/7/2018*
📜 *—1 Peter 5:9-10, The Amplified Bible*
_*Withstand [the devil]; be firm in faith [against his onset—rooted, established, strong, immovable, and determined], knowing that the same (identical) sufferings are appointed to your brotherhood (the whole body of Christians) throughout the world. And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace…will Himself complete and make you what you ought to be, establish and ground you securely, and strengthen and settle you.*_

👏No matter how long you’ve been living by faith, no matter how much you’ve learned about it, every once in a while you’re going to suffer a setback. You’re going to run into some circumstances that just don’t turn out the way you expect them to.

👉When that happens, remember this: _*Those setbacks are just temporary.*_ _You may have lost a battle, but you’re not going to lose the war. Just get up and go at it again._

🚫“But I don’t understand it,” you say. “I did the best I could. I walked in all the truth I knew to walk in. Why didn’t I get the victory?”

👌Because there was something you didn’t know! It shouldn’t shock you too much that there are things you don’t know about the realm of the spirit. Many a times, we spent untold hours in the Word. Yet it seems like the more we learn, the more we realize we don’t know.

✊So, in tough situations where we can’t seem to get victory we have to ask God for more wisdom _*(James 1:5).*_ If you’ll look in _*2 Samuel 21*_, you can see a time when King David had to do that. His country had been suffering from a famine for three years and David just didn’t understand it, so he inquired of the Lord. You know what the Lord told him? He told him the famine had come because of something Saul had done! Isn’t that amazing? Saul had been dead for years, yet what he’d put in motion in the realm of the spirit was still affecting his country.

♦David could have just given up when his usual confessions of faith and ways of praying didn’t drive out that famine, but he didn’t. He inquired of God for more wisdom. He used his temporary setback to cause him to seek more knowledge from God.

👣Follow his example! Overcome the habit of quitting because of temporary setbacks. Refuse to let them knock you out of the game. After all, this thing’s not over till it’s over. And the Bible says when it’s all over, you’ll have won. So just be steadfast in your faith. In the end your victory is guaranteed.

2 Samuel 21:1-6

🙏 *PRAYER*🙏
_Father, I understand that by faith we please You. I am sorry for drawing back from that lifestyle thereby grieving Your Holy Spirit. I rise up from obscurity and I declare I shall stand firm in my faith to the end because You are the Glory and the lifter of my head. Blessed be Your Name forever oh LORD in Jesus Christ’s Name. Amen!_

FREE FROM THE PAST

🔥 *DAILY DEVOTION*🔥

📆 *24/7/2018*

📜 *—Philippians 3:13*
_*…But this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before.*_

💔Failures and disappointments. Aches and pains from the past that just won’t seem to go away. Most of us know what it’s like to suffer from them but too few of us know just what to do about them. So we limp along, hoping somehow they’ll magically stop hurting.

🚫But it never happens that way. In fact, the passing of time often leaves us in worse condition—not better. Because, instead of putting those painful failures behind us, we often dwell on them until they become more real to us than the promises of God. We focus on them until we become bogged down in depression, frozen in our tracks by the fear that if we go on, we’ll only fail again.

☝Too often we pattern our thoughts off the past instead of the future. We ought not to do that! Unbelief looks at the past and says, “See, it can’t be done.” But faith looks at the future and says, “It can be done, and according to the promises of God, it is done!” Then putting past failures behind it forever, faith steps out and acts like the victory’s already been won.

🕎If depression has driven you into a spiritual nose dive, break out of it by getting your eyes off the past and onto your future—a future that’s been guaranteed by Christ Jesus through the great and precious promises in His Word.

⬆Forget about those failures in the past! That’s what God has done _*(Hebrews 8:12).*_ And if He doesn’t remember them anymore, why should you?

🛐The Bible says God’s mercies are new every morning _*(Lamentations 3:23).*_ So if you’ll take God at His Word, you can wake up every morning to a brand-new life. You can live life totally unhindered by the past.

👉So, do it! Replace thoughts of yesterday’s mistakes with scriptural promises about your future. As you do that, hope will start taking the place of depression. The spiritual aches and pains that have crippled you for so long will quickly disappear. Instead of looking behind you and saying, _*“I can’t,” you’ll begin to look ahead and say, “I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me!”*_
