Ephesians 6:16 In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one,
If you want to know how to have victory over the lies Satan is planting in your mind it is through faith! As your faith increases in the promises of God Satan will struggle getting you to believe his lies. Think about it for a minute: if you believe that God can do anything and He is more powerful than the financial problems you have then Satan can’t tell you that you your circumstances will never change, he won’t be able to tell you that you will never lose the weight you want to lose, he won’t be able to tell you that you will never have a child, he won’t be able to tell you that you will never get married or that your marriage will never be good. The victory over your thoughts about your life will come through having the faith that God has your back, He only desires good for you and He loves you, the more you believe that the easier it is to block what Satan has to say about you and your future.
Seek the promises of God in His word, dig into the scriptures to see what He has to say. Spend time in prayer asking Him what you need to change in your life to be more like Him and to be more successful. The first place to start if you aren’t doing it already is to spend time in your Bible and reading good Godly books that may deal with what you are struggling with. As it says in Joshua 1:8 “This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.” Success comes from knowing Him and knowing the promises and direction He has given you. We have to do our part and then God will do the rest. We cannot just sit around waiting for victory, we have to go after it and the more we know God’s word the more confidence we will have to go after it.
Start today; choose to have faith, if you are lacking in the faith area pray like the man did in Mark 9:23-24, “And Jesus said to him, ‘If you can! All things are possible for one who believes.’ Immediately the father of the child cried out, ‘I believe, help my unbelief!’” Jesus then answered His prayer. If He would do that for Him, He will do it for you as well. Don’t allow Satan to defeat you another day! Take charge and rebuke him and pray for God to give you the faith you need day by day and you will begin to see God work in your life in ways you have never seen before. “Without faith it is impossible to please Him!”
