At home my sister and I have an internal joke where we tease each other saying, “The women of the house must clean, wash and cook and that’s our place”. When one of us have something to do, we scream out ‘Know your place’ (which simply means just do the work what you are supposed to do). Now hold on!! Before you start revolting against me, as I said earlier that’s just a joke – Our place isn’t anything less, but we are all just responsible as sons and daughters of the house.
But the Lord showed me, as we give a person a special place in the house, we Christians tend to give satan a special place in our lives, than we give God.
How you ask? Well…
You entertain his thoughts, his baits, his lies, his deception, his temptations?
Condemning thoughts keep coming in your head?
You devalue yourself?
Are you constantly worrying?
How the devil works?
The devil will bring that bait of your weakness and bring it in your presence and he will say, “C’mon, catch it, it’s your old habit. It’s harmless. Just do it once”.
And once you fall for it, you realise later that you are already in a trap of this ongoing cycle of lies and condemnation.
One day the same happened to me, where the enemy gave me a series of thoughts that were not in line with God’s Word. That’s when God showed me loud and clear, “Hey it’s just a bait. You are not the devil’s fish, but you are a fisher of men’.
And that day, I remember, I said out loud, “Get lost devil with your schemes. Know your place”. And when I did that, I felt so free instantly.
Show the devil his place!
Don’t give the enemy a place in your head. The last time I heard he is the size of the rat and still is. He belongs to the pit of hell and THAT’S HIS PLACE. He has no power. Don’t let him rent space in your mind to make you feel lost, distracted, stuck, weak, overwhelmed, depressed or oppressed.
You are called to oppress and depress the devil. Fight back those feelings. And the best way to do it is by saying God’s Word out loud. Sing praises to God.
Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. They are from the world; therefore they speak from the world, and the world listens to them. (1 John 4:4-5 ESV)
The world listens to the devil and his cohorts because they belong here, but we are not of this world since we are now in Christ and so we have authority! You are an overcomer in Christ. You are called to soar!
If you are fighting temptation, distraction, bondages in thought life, depression, weakness, contact us and we will pray for you.
