Theft robbery

How to defeat the devil for good and reclaim what he has stolen from you (OPINION)

The devil is out to steal, kill and destroy everything that belongs to you or should belong to you. But you were called to resist him, use your authority and stand your ground. You were called to guard what belongs to you and reclaim whatever he has stolen. Yet, too many times, when Christians have suffered a loss, they retreat. They go into flight mode instead of fight mode.

We must remember that Satan is intent on fighting us every inch of the way as we pursue the Lord’s destiny for our lives. Just as God has a plan for our lives, so does the devil: “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly”.

For many of God's sons and daughters, the devil has plundered, stolen, and kept what is rightfully yours way past too long because he devil is skilled in twisting the truth and making lies believable.

How do we defeat the devil? A simple prayer will undo him. Humility, purity and a pious obedience to God are powerful weapons. And continuing to strive for the good, despite our weaknesses will defeat him.

The devil is real and terrible. He is much stronger than we are, and he aims to deceive and destroy. Jesus said, “He was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies” (John 8:44).

The devil is conquered wherever his design to devour faith is defeated. That defeat is by the cross of Christ and the Word of God. We should not think of the devil as a myth, a representation, a symbol, a figure of speech or an idea. This mistake would lead us to let down our guard, to grow careless and end up more vulnerable. Always rely on God’s words, not Satan’s promises.

Prayer is the number one key and a God-given weapon to defeat the devil.
