This is a battle, and you’ve got to be in it to win it. You are an overcomer. In Christ, you are destined to crush Satan under your feet. Just use everything that you’ve got. So…what are you doing with all that power? Here are four tactics to apply right now.
- Use Your Mind. Think Satan’s defeat. Your first weapon involves your mind. By thinking positively (Philippians 4:8) and expecting your faith to triumph, you gain the victory. You win!
- Use your Eyes. You need clear vision. Focus, focus, focus: keep your eyes on Jesus. (Hebrews 12:2) Then, stop searching for the faults in others; instead, look for their good.
- Use Your Ears. Listen for the right sounds. What you hear is the source of your faith; faith comes by hearing. (Romans 10:17) Be perceptive; fill your ears with good teachings and positive reinforcement. Shut out the destructive noise of the world. The one thing Satan does not want you to do is to listen for God’s voice.
- Use your Mouth. Speak joy, your best verbal tool. Resentful, hurtful and critical speech is destructive. Pronounce words of joy, healing, love and understanding. Accomplishing Everyday Joy is the strategy of overcomers.
For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.~1 John 5:4 (English Standard Version)
