Thoughts Of Devotion:

In the earthly ministry of Jesus, he faced much opposition from the enemy! He was continually assaulted by the powers of darkness. But in every situation and attack, Jesus was victorious and triumphant against the enemy. Under the power of the Holy Spirit he cast out demons as he tells us in Acts 10:38, “how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.” The anointing of the Holy Spirit delivered all those oppressed by the devil, the kingdom of darkness could not stand up against the power and authority of Jesus!

This spiritual authority is always as a direct result of the work and the power of the Holy Spirit. Jesus had commissioned his disciples to minister under this power as Mark 16:17-18 tells us, “And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; 18 they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.” As I read this scripture one sees, the unlimited power of the Holy Spirit! When the disciples worked under this authority and power there was nothing that could stop them!

Today the power of the enemy is very real, certainly daily as believers we will experience their attacks and opposition. But we will never be at the mercy of the enemy, if we are filled with the Holy Spirit! It is important to understand that only through his fullness and power is that we too can defeat any cunning attack the enemy throws against our lives. If we have the anointing of the Holy Spirit, victory will be certain! We can disarm all the power of the enemy that comes against us, we will do as it is declared in Luke 11:21-22, “But if I cast out demons with the finger of God, surely the kingdom of God has come upon you. 21 When a strong man, fully armed, guards his own palace, his goods are in peace. 22 But when a stronger than he comes upon him and overcomes him, he takes from him all his armor in which he trusted, and divides his spoils. “

Foundational Scriptures:

1 John 3:8 (NKJV) — He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.

Mark 10:7-8 (NKJV) — ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’; [a] so then they are no longer two, but one flesh.

Mark 16:17-18 (NKJV) — 17 And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; 18 they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”

Luke 11:20-22 (NKJV) — 20 But if I cast out demons with the finger of God, surely the kingdom of God has come upon you. 21 When a strong man, fully armed, guards his own palace, his goods are in peace. 22 But when a stronger than he comes upon him and overcomes him, he takes from him all his armor in which he trusted, and divides his spoils.

1 John 3:8-9 (NKJV) — He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil. Whoever has been born of God does not sin, for His seed remains in him; and he cannot sin, because he has been born of God.

Acts 10:38 (NKJV) — 38 how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.
