By our choice we give our Enemy his degree of victory in our lives. Let us by choice give victory to the true victor - JESUS CHRIST - by submitting wholly unto Him.
Concerning the days we are in and the part God’s people are to embrace in order to usher in His will and plan for us .....
.....(RE: Isaiah 42:13-25 NAS) Let us not be those counted with “he who was burned and did not recognize it.” We are to be the ones who have eyes that see and ears that hear! We are to be the ones to shout “Give them back!” with authority given us through Jesus Christ our Lord. It is time for our anger to burn against the enemy of our souls and count him defeated in all things. The enemy only has possession of ground we have given him - let’s take that ground back! We have bold and confident access to God our Father through Christ Jesus so let us boldly go forth and tread on the enemy’s head.
HE WHO IS IN US IS GREATER!!!!!
In matters of the heart, God, in His infinite mercy, grace, compassion and love for us will not do anything without invitation.
Satan, however, can not do anything without invitation.
So it is your choice - who do you want to reign supreme in your life? Think about this when you’re sending out those invitations.
If you know and understand the ways of yourself, your God and your enemies, you will better know how to identify the sources of influence in your life.
We are told in the Word to be on the alert for our enemy, the Devil, who prowls around seeking to destroy us. How can we be on the alert without wisdom and understanding about what we are to be on the alert for? When we seek God's Wisdom and Understanding we will gain a level of spiritual discernment needed to shed light on the seen and unseen dark places in our lives or know if we are walking in the light of God's Love. As children of God we have given to us all the power and authority needed to overcome so don't let a lack of knowledge and understanding keep you in the dark.

8 Be of sober spirit, be on the alert Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.
