Ephesians 6:11(KJV); Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
The devil has no power over the children of God. Jesus said, “ALL POWER is given unto me in heaven and in earth.” (Matthew 28:18).
This means that the devil does not operate in the earth by power. He only does so by deception.
For this reason, our theme scripture says, put on the whole armour of God that ye may be able to stand against the WILES of the devil. It does not speak of standing against THE POWER of the devil.
Every attack on your life is a form of deception. Sickness is deception. Failure is deception. Struggle is deception.
What gives this deception the semblance of reality is the ignorance of men.
However, to a New Testament creature, Paul says that you are not ignorant of the devices of the enemy (2 Corinthians 2:11).
You cannot be deceived because you have the advanced knowledge of God that looks at the deception of sickness and says, “it shall not end in death” (John 11:4).That looks at pain and calls it a light affliction and instead expects a greater weight of glory (2 Corinthians 4:17). Hallelujah!
FURTHER STUDY: Proverbs 11:9, 1 John 2:20
You cannot be deceived by the devil because you have the advanced knowledge of God.
PRAYER: Father, I thank you for the advanced knowledge that I have in you. I am above deception. My reality is Christ. I cannot be moved by any schemes of the enemy. I am only moved by the Word of Christ. I constantly behold truth which is the testimony of my true freedom. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
