John 10:10 (KJV); The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
The devil has no power to kill a child of God because all power was stripped from him by Christ (Matthew 28:18).
When you received Christ in your spirit, you received the stronger man; you were elevated above all powers and principalities and entered into a life of perpetual victory.
Why then do some Christians still suffer at the hands of the enemy? Why does he steal from them, kill them and destroy them yet Christ has given them the abundant life?
Even though the enemy does not have the power to kill, steal from or destroy them, he is cunning enough to get them to agree with him.
Children of God become victims of the enemy when they agree with him. The first place of manipulating this agreement is in the battlefield of the mind.
For example, the enemy may flash the thought that you are falling sick across your mind. When you hold onto that thought, see yourself being diagnosed with a terminal illness, see yourself hospitalised and see yourself undergo all forms of treatment, he will have succeeded in getting you to agree with him.
The wise Christian must uproot the thought at the very moment it comes into his or her mind. If the enemy dares to suggest that you are falling sick, declare the Word of God, “None in zion shall say I am sick” (Isaiah 33:24). Don’t merely shrug it off. Refuse the very idea and thrust it out of your mind immediately.
Make a deliberate choice to always disagree with the enemy but agree with God.

GOLDEN NUGGET: If the enemy dares to suggest that you are falling sick, declare the Word of God, “None in zion shall say I am sick” (Isaiah 33:24). Don’t merely shrug it off. Refuse the very idea and thrust it out of your mind immediately. Make a deliberate choice to always disagree with the enemy but agree with God.
PRAYER: Father, I thank You for this truth. I am alive to the wisdom of true spiritual warfare. I am not ignorant of the enemy’s devices. In this understanding, I stand guard at the door of my mind and refuse to agree with his suggestions. I agree with Your Word, Your Spirit and Your purposes concerning my life. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
