My newest book Victorious Mindset will be coming out this week. The official release date is April 14th. I would like to share a few devotionals from the book with you. This book is a 30 day devotional sharing how to have a mind set on Christ and be victorious over the things that we face in life. The Victorious Living Collection would not be complete without sharing how to have a mind set on Christ. I continue to enjoy this series of books so much and am so appreciative to God for giving me each book to write. Thank you God! I pray that these books will bring You glory and lift the name of Jesus high!
Resisting the Devil
Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. —James 4:7
Live It Out
The devil knows how powerful your mind can be if focused on Christ. He knows that you’re a threat to him if all your thoughts are lined up with God’s Word. So he will attack. I can guarantee you that. The first place he attacks is your mind. If he can get your thoughts off of God, then he can take you any where. He will drag you through the mud and beat you up if you let him. But you can experience freedom if you simply submit yourself to God and resist the devil.
Do not—and I repeat do not—let the devil pester you! God is the authority over your life, and you don’t ever have to take what Satan tries to dish out. Do exactly what the Scripture says, “Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”
Do not entertain thoughts that Satan may bring saying, “You’re not good enough,”“You should have done this better,” “If you were only like so and so,” “You need to be a better Christian,” etc. Don’t let Satan beat you up; instead, let God build you up!
The thief comes to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. —John 10:10
Pray It Through
Dear Father God, today I choose to resist every ugly thought that the enemy tries to plant in my mind. I want my thoughts to dwell on Your goodness, Your faithfulness, and Your purpose for my life. Please give me the strength to resist my enemy today and experience the full and abundant life You offer.
And Satan trembles when he sees, the weakest saint upon his knees.—William Cowper
