Text: Psa. 24:1-10
“The earth is the LORD’S, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods. Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? Or who shall stand in the holy place? He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation. This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy face, O Jacob. Selah. Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle. Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah.”
The devil has no right to manipulate your destiny; he has no right to usurp your authority except you permit him. The devil is not only a usurper, he is a deceiver, he is also a destroyer and a thief, a liar and father of lies. These are established in the scriptures as part of his nature. As a child of God you need to know this so that when he attempts to mesmerize you, you will stand up boldly and tell him ‘No! I know who I am. I am redeemed of the Lord.’ You should remind the devil that you are now an heir of the kingdom. You have authority, you have a destiny. You have an inheritance in the saints and of the household of God. Jesus, the eternal Son of the most high God is the King of glory.
Man was created to have dominion according to Gen. 1:27-28, “So, God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.” Comprehensive dominion was given to man but he lost it when he failed. Having lost it, man handed the dominion over to the devil, the deceiver. Man was deceived to hand over what was handed over to him by God to the devil.
- Lord, in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I ask that you make it impossible for me to be deceived. Make it impossible for me to hand over what you have given me to the enemy. Lord, in the mighty name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, make it impossible for me to cede dominion to the enemy in the name of Jesus Christ. Make it impossible for me to hand over anything you have given me to the enemy in the mighty name of Jesus. Thank you blessed Lord, in Jesus mighty name I pray.
