DAY 2: I Am More Than a Conqueror

Text: 1 Peter 5:8-9
Memorize: Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour. 1 Peter 5:8

Scriptures: 1 Peter 5:9;2 Corinthians 5:17;Philippians 4:13;2 Corinthians 5:21

Peter not only likened Satan to a lion, but he said that he is a “roaring lion” (1 Peter 5:8). The devil’s roars might sound something like this:

Threat: “If you step out to do that, I will expose all your dirty secrets and nobody will ever trust you.”

Lie: “The road ahead is too difficult; you should give up now.”
Accusation: “Look at all your failures; God is disgusted with you.”
Roars such as these have tremendous power to evoke overwhelming fear and cause you to retreat, which is just what the devil wants.
Don’t flinch or look away. Stand. Make declarations about who you are and what you have in Christ. When the devil hears you assert your identity in Christ, he no longer sees only you; he sees Jesus. And if he is smart, he will shut his mouth and retreat.

When you stand your ground by meditating on God’s love and declaring His Word, you will beat the devil down.

Activate The Word – I am more than a conqueror. I don’t fight for victory, but I stand in the victory of Jesus. His finished work on the cross assures me of forgiveness, healing, peace, provision, protection, and acceptance of God. No attack, threats, lies, or accusations can steal these away from me – not now or in the future. I declare that in Christ I am above the influences of Satan!
