The Devil’s Destiny
Instead of the saints of God continuously dwelling on the devil’s gloom and doom in our minds, we should dwell on what the Word of God says concerning the ultimate destiny of the devil:
Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out. And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me. (John 12:31-32)
Now is the judgment — that means the devil is already defeated. He no longer has power over the earth. Jesus Christ has the power and, if we lift him up, no fiery darts of the enemy can ever harm us.
In the book of Revelation, we find details regarding Satan’s ultimate destiny:
And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever. (Revelation 20:10)
If you are to ever receive God’s promises, claim your inheritance, and take the spiritual territory that is rightfully yours, then you must get these truths down in your spirit:
- The enemy has been judged.
- His power has been destroyed.
- His ultimate destiny is assured.
- Jesus destroyed the works of the devil (1 John 3:8).
Surely, if the Son of God has destroyed the works of the devil, then the saints of God need to grasp that breakthrough revelation and begin to function in the full power and authority God intended.
You must know and act upon these facts as the nation of Israel did:
- The devil has no power over you except what you allow him to have.
- The devil cannot make you do anything that you do not want to do.
- He has no power over your will!
Each morning, start your day focusing not on your current circumstances, but on the ability of God to overcome every obstacle before you. Each day, give God the glory as the creator of the universe and the source of all your needs. Start each day with the knowledge that there is no circumstance that you cannot overcome.
Make this declaration:
The power God gave me is greater than the forces of Satan. As a child of God, I can overcome all the purported power of the enemy.
