Enjoy Your Liberty
If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed
When you confessed Jesus Christ as Lord of your life something remarkable happened in the realm of the spirit; you were at once severed from the dominion of Satan. Satan can no longer lord it over you or run rampage in your life because you’re superior to him.
The whole world was in bondage to Satan until Jesus came and liberated humanity from the bondage of sin and death. Hebrews 2:14-15 says: “Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.”
Satan no longer has the right to hold man captive. He’s however a rebel holder of authority. In rebellion against God, he holds people in bondage and exerts his power over those who are ignorant of what Christ has done in their behalf. Only those who get to know the truth enjoy the liberty of the sons of God. That’s why we preach the Gospel; to announce to the world the good news that they’re no longer under servitude to sin and Satan, but have been made absolutely free by the Son of God.
From when you confessed Jesus as Lord of your life, Satan lost his authority over you. Today, he can only impose authority over the one who’s ignorant of his blood-bought rights in Christ. When you’re conscious of your identity in Christ, Satan can’t influence your life, your words, your business or your family. He has no right to do so, therefore don’t let him. Enjoy your liberty in Christ and stand fast in the liberty, wherein Christ has made you free.
Dear Father, thank you for the victory I have in Christ Jesus; victory over sin, over the devil, and over death. Jesus Christ is Lord of my life; therefore I’m superior to Satan and have overcome the world. Hallelujah!
