October Week 2 Day 12 UPowerUp!
From Bend-Down to Breakthrough!
Beloved... Be sober, well balanced and self-disciplined, be alert and cautious at all times. That enemy of yours, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, fiercely hungry, seeking someone to devour. But resist him, be firm in your faith, against his attack—rooted, established, immovable, knowing that the same experiences of suffering are being experienced by your brothers and sisters throughout the world. You do not suffer alone. After you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, Who imparts His blessing and favor, who called you to His own eternal glory in Christ, will Himself complete, confirm, strengthen, and establish you, making you what you ought to be.
Satan's strategy and his main tactic is the deception; to cause us to doubt the truth of the Word of God and to question God's promises of deliverance and blessings... To tell us lies and deceive us to disobey God's commandments and abort God's promises... To tempt us through the lust of our flesh with counterfeit and fake benefits... To cause us to become impatient and discouraged waiting for the fulfillment of God's promises and then accept his false way out... So, submit to the authority of God. Resist the devil, stand firm against him and he will flee from you. Do not give the devil a foothold. Satan is the Father of Lies... But, we are Children of Light!
The Bible tells us that Satan tempted Jesus. But Jesus resisted and rebuked the devil with the Word of God...
"Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. And when He had fasted forty days and forty nights, afterwards He was hungry. Now when the tempter came to Him, he said, 'If You are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread.'
But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.’”
Then the devil took Him up into the holy city, set Him on the pinnacle of the temple, and said to Him, “If You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down. For it is written:
‘He shall give His angels charge over you,’ and, In their hands, they shall bear you up, Lest you dash your foot against a stone.’
Jesus said to him, “It is written again, ‘You shall not tempt the Lord your God.’"
Again, the devil took Him up on an exceedingly high mountain and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. And he said to Him, “All these things I will give You if You will fall down and worship me.”
Then Jesus said to him, “Away with you, Satan! For it is written, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only you shall serve.’"
Then the devil left Him, and behold, angels came and ministered to Him."
O thank you, Jesus! I declare that overwhelming victory is mine through Christ who loves me.
Despite all these things, we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor principalities, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.…
Jesus is the name above all names, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come. Jesus has ascended into heaven and is at the right hand of God, with angels, authorities, and powers subject to Him. Every enemy must flee as I declare Jesus' victory. I will call upon on the Lord, as He alone is strong enough to save and help me. My shackles are no more... For Jesus Christ has broken every chain and every stronghold! The name of Jesus liberates me...
Jesus said, "I have told you these things so that in Me you may have peace. In the world, you will have tribulation. But take courage; I have overcome the world!"
I take courage, as Jesus has overcome the world. I overcome every strategy of hell... These evil strategies are exposed, expired and extinguished by the Fire of God. I overcome every temptation, trial, trouble, tribulation, hindrance, limitation, lack, sickness, curse, discouragement, drama, opposition and oppression; in Jesus mighty name.
Devil, I rebuke you, hold your peace and come out, now! Devil, Jesus rebukes you, you must FLEE, now!!
God shall take me out of my wilderness and lead me to my promised land. I am Son-placed and positioned to possess my possession. I claim territorial rights of my inheritance, covenant promises and the promised land, with boldness, confidence, dominion and authority; as I am Child of God and Servant of the Lord! I bind Satan, the deceiver, devourer and destroyer of my life. I command all demons to leave me, my children, my household, my family, our finances, this day, and our destiny; in Jesus name.
In Jesus name, I declare that:
I am redeemed! I am victorious! I am an overcomer! I possess my possession!
Prosperity is mine... The LORD be magnified, Who delights in the prosperity of me, His servant!
Peace is mine... Great is the LORD, who delights in the blessing of me, His servant with peace!
Freedom is mine... He whom the Son set free is free indeed!
Healing is mine... By His stripes, I am healed!
Deliverance is mine... Deliverance is His children's bread!
Favor is mine... Lord, I know you are pleased, delighted and favored me, for You have not let my enemies triumph over me!
Victory is mine...The Battle is the Lord's... LORD, You give me Your shield of victory and Your right hand sustains me…
Victory is my inheritance because I am a believer, born again and washed in the redemptive and victorious Blood of Jesus. I belong to the Kingdom of God. I have believed and received Jesus Christ, as my personal Lord and Savior!
I release the power of the Blood of Jesus to cover me, my children, my family and all our concerns... Blood of Jesus, break every power of darkness, destruction and death... Blood of Jesus, defeat all my enemies and prepare a table before me in their presence... LORD, give me a double portion for my trouble... LORD, make my name great and of good reputation in every area that the enemy brought me to shame... LORD, shift me from being overlooked to overbooked... Blood of Jesus, break every curse against us!
Lord, bring us out of our midst, for Your lovingkindness is everlasting,. Lord, you have a mighty, strong and powerful hand and an outstretched arm to save and deliver us, for Your lovingkindness is everlasting!
By the Blood of Jesus, our victory over the enemy is established... We receive our Salvation and Shalom! The Blood of Jesus releases us into peace, abundance, well-being, power, prosperity, protection, security, deliverance, virtue, righteousness, holiness, protection, security, favor, honor, influence, wisdom, worship, wealth, grace, mercy, and goodness... for the Glory of God and His namesake.
In the name of Jesus, I pray, praise, and proclaim these prophetic utterances over my life, the lives of my children, my household, my family, and the lives of every follower of the Nikimac community, our finances, health, projects, mind, body, soul, thoughts, wisdom/potential/capacity, careers/businesses, callings/ministries, the work of our hands, and our destiny, in Jesus name.
I shall decree a thing, and it will be established for me and light will shine on my ways.
Thank you, Lord!! In Jesus name, we pray, AMEN!!
