If the LORD delights in us, then He will bring us into this land and give it to us, a land which flows with milk and honey.' Only do not rebel against the LORD, nor fear the people of the land, for they are our bread; their protection has departed from them, and the LORD is with us. Do not fear them." Numbers 14:8-9.
I want you to reflect on what God said to the children of Israel thousands of years ago, He told them to go up and occupy the land that He has given them (ordained as theirs). He told them to take it by force, without fear, from the ungodly ones who were dwelling there. Do you know that God is still saying that today? As His people, he is still trying to get us to take the good land (promises and victories) He’s given us. God is still trying to get us to use the awesome power He has made available to us to run the wicked one out of our inheritance. May I let you know; the earth doesn’t belong to the devil. It belongs to God (Psalm 24:1), and He has given it to His children (Psalm 115:16). The devil is a usurper, a thief, and an imposter. We have to stop him!
That is our job as the redeemed of the Lord. Jesus, our Lord, took Satan’s legal rights away from him on resurrection morning. He then put you and me in charge of enforcing Satan’s defeat (Hebrews 10:12-13). Glory be to God; we are the occupying force of the Lord over the earth. Listen, friend, just like Israel had to rise physically to take the land of Canaan, you and I have to rise in the spirit if we are going to be able to enforce the dominion God has given us. We have to take what belongs to us by force (Matthew 11:12).
So, today, if the devil has control of any area of your life, family, or community, rise in the spirit through faith and prayer with the Word and start taking back such territory. Do not be afraid, his defense has departed from him. He has been stripped of all his weapons and you have ordained a winner in the battles of life.
Application: The Lord God is with me, today, in the mighty name of Jesus, I rise and take back my land, my family, marriage, children, health, peace, and prosperity. Thanks be to God Who gives me victory every day and always.
Scripture reading for the day – Revelation 2:1-29.
Why are the children of God experiencing failure? Why are we not actualizing the great destinies that God has prepared for us? Why are unbelievers successful and the children of God suffering in insufficiency? Knowledge is the key. You cannot rise above your knowledge!
