Devil Is Defeated. God Is Exalted.
The Enemy, although not omnipotent, can be a formidable foe. Thankfully, God does leave us to fight or fend for ourselves. He sits high, looks low and gives us supernatural ability that will be the proven weapon to victory.Sometimes it seem as though God has been relegated to a lower position when the power of the enemy shows up in our circumstances. However, God is always keeping a watchful eye on the conditions of this world and His children.
Since He deserves the highest praise for the things He has done, then that means His thoughts and ways that are high above ours are evidence that He is the exalted God. He has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing (given by the Holy Spirit) in the heavenly realm. It is reassuring to know that God continues to work in the heavenlies, pouring out His Spirit to release blessings to those who dare to walk by faith and not by sight.
Not only that, God is faithful to do exceedingly, abundantly above all that we ask or think (but it’s only) according to the power that works in us.
The enemy will always be poised to hit the faith-centered believer with intimidating attacks and doubts about God and His care for us. The enemy’s job is to cripple the power God has given us. It's God's that we need in order to let Him work in us and for us. The devil does not want to see us delivered before his very eyes. For our deliverance in Christ means the devil's defeat against Christ.
Thus, the testimony is the devil is defeated. God is exalted. If only we would just “be still and know that He is God,” then we will experience firsthand what it means to stand on the strength of the exalted Lord.
A Prayer Based On Psalm 46
Lord, you are our rock, fortress and refuge. Although the devil attacks and turmoil strikes, we will anchor ourselves in your exalted name, to be still and know you are God above all. In your Son Jesus name, Amen
