“Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered …” Psalms 68:1 (KJV)
When we speak by authority, by faith, the enemy of God will flee from before you. The attack will stop immediately. What a wonderful gift every child of the King has received. If you have received Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior of your life, you have been given authority to use the precious name of Jesus Christ, in every situation.
When I was a very young Christian, I had been taught this principle, but my faith wasn’t as sure as it is today. So when under attack, my speech to the enemy attacking me was very soft and contrived strength. In other words, I didn’t really believe it would work—I hoped the demon would understand.
The demon and devil does understand—he knows when we believe and when we hope, and when we will try whatever. Only with conviction of our faith, speaking the name of Jesus Christ with authority does the enemy back off. He is then scattered from your spirit.
Verse 2 and 3 confirms, “As smoke is driven away, so drive them away: as wax melteth before the fire, so let the wicked perish at the presence of God. But let the righteous be glad; let them rejoice before God: yea, let them exceedingly rejoice.”
When the battle is over, we rejoice—Hallelujah! Sing, dance, and raise your voice and hands in thanks giving. Let God arise—and indwell in you—be victorious in all things, and let the enemy be scattered.
Pray: Lord, I thank you for being the Lord and Savior of my life. I give you praise, honor, worship, and magnify your name. It is your name above every name in heaven and earth. Thank you for giving me authority over the enemy that wants to destroy me and take my blessings. Because of you Lord Jesus, I have the victory.
Friend, you may not feel the faith and see the victory, but be assured that you do have it. We don’t see Jesus but by faith believe—victory is in Him—walk the walk, and speak your victory.
