"For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil" (1 John 3:8).
Is the devil giving you fits today? Is he causing trouble for you at every turn?
If so, turn the table on him. Start making him miserable for a change. You have the power to do it, you know. You have the power residing in you to destroy his works, to heal, to deliver, to set the captives free.
You have so much power in you that every time your alarm clock goes off, the devil should wail, "Oh no! That troublemaker is up again!"
Several years ago, I got a letter from a little girl who had attended one of my healing services in Los Angeles. Although she was far too young to understand theology or anything like that, the Lord gave her a very simple and profound revelation as she watched people being healed.
She said that as she looked up at the platform, she couldn't see me at all. She just saw Jesus. And she also saw the devil. Do you know what the devil was doing? He was lying on the floor crying, "This can't be! This can't be! This can't be!"
Right now, at this very moment, the power of the Lord Jesus Christ is at work within you. And it's not just there to get you to heaven someday. It's there so you can give the devil a fit right here on earth. It's there so you can build the kingdom of God now - while there's still time.
Line up with God's Word and will for your life. Let the anointing of Jesus go forth from within you. All of hell will tremble. And you will never be quite the same again. Scripture Reading:
