WHAT CAN STOP HIM?
*BELIEVERS WHO KNOW THEIR AUTHORITY IN CHRIST
* GOD’S SOLDIER’S (ARE YOU ONE?)
* THE BLOOD OF JESUS
* BELIEVERS WHO HOLD FAST TO THEIR PROFESSION OF FAITH
*THE WORD OF GOD
*THE FERVENT EFFECTUAL PRAYER OF A RIGHTEOUS MAN (OR WOMAN)
*THE POWER OF GOD
*SPEAKING FAITH STOPS SATAN IN HIS TRACKS
*BINDING & LOOSING: YOU HAVE THE KEYS TO THE KINGDOM
*STAYING PRAYED UP
*PRAYING IN THE SPIRIT; THE PERFECT WILL OF GOD
* A BAND OF PEOPLE PRAYING GOD’S WILL CAN PUT THOUSANDS OF ANGELS IN FLIGHT, QUENCHING “EVERY” FIERY DART OF THE ENEMY.
*OPERATE IN LOVE
*KEEPING THE COMMANDMENTS
*NEVER QUIT BELIEVING
*STANDING ON THE WORD
My point is to tell you that the devil’s job is to distract you so that you’ll be so “caught up” on your problems that you won’t realize it’s a smokescreen to get you
off the plan of God.
Make up your mind, strengthen yourself, stay encouraged, grow yourself up and others, increase your confidence, take the offensive and WIN!
Remember Psalms 34: 19
Many are the afflictions of the righteous, BUT the Lord delivereth him out of them all.
