Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.James 4:7
The devil tempted Jesus repeatedly as He wandered through the desert for 40 days. Each time, Jesus resisted Satan’s bait and instead obeyd God’s plan, until eventually the devil fled.
I struggled with debilitating anxiety for a long time, because I was afraid to confront Satan and call him out on his lies. But then as I read in Revelations 12:11 that Satan is defeated by the Blood of the Lamb, Jesus reminded me I am covered by that same blood, and that I belong to Him.
So now when the enemy tries to bait me with fear and worry, I plead the blood.When the enemy tries to bait you with fear and worry, plead the blood. Click To Tweet
How do I do this? I find a place where I can be alone, open my mouth and talk right back at that dirty lair! I remind Satan that not only is he already whopped, but that I’m covered by the same blood that whopped him. Then I put on Jesus’ armor and put Satan on notice that I belong to Jesus, so he has to go through Jesus to get to me.
If you’d like to see exactly how I resist the enemy when I get anxious, join me for the Staying Strong Summit this week, where I, along with over 20 other Christians, share how we shine during struggles.
There are numerous people in need of hope today. The last year alone has been tough for many. My personal struggle began before the pandemic started. I have dealt with a pseudotumor, cognitive memory issues, and anxiety.
That’s why I agreed to speak at a virtual summit April 22-24. I, along with over 20 other speakers, will be sharing our personal testimonies how during struggles we became overcomers.
As Christians we need to hear from others that have been beaten down, often broken yet have managed to overcome and shine with the hope that is found in Jesus.
