Satan is already defeated
We need to remember that the Lord has already defeated Satan at the cross. We should quit magnifying Satan and giving him so much credit. Instead, we should focus on the wonder-working God Who fights our battles for us. Then we would see with our own eyes the victories we long for!
If the devil has been bombarding you with temptations, tests, and trials, remember—the battle is not yours. It’s God’s. You don’t have to try to “fight” Satan. Just stand your ground with the Word of God. And begin to praise Him for performing for you what He promised in His Word (Rom. 4:21; Heb. 10:23).
Some circumstances will look impossible to you. But if you are to stand firm and immovable on God’s Word, believing Him to fight every battle for you, you will need to learn the power in praise.
Learn to give God praise and glory in the midst of every trial—before the obstacles are gone. Give God praise and glory for what He has promised you in His Word—even though you don’t see any change in your circumstances. That’s faith! And faith always wins the victory (1 John 5:4)!
Get to know who you are in Christ. When you do and the devil comes against you, you can throw your shoulders back and begin to march like a true soldier of God. You’ll have your helmet of salvation intact and your shield of faith raised high. You can boldly proclaim the promises of God, singing and praising Him confidently for the victory. And you shall prevail!
It’s time that we in the Church, the Lord’s army, begin to march forward and praise God. It’s time for us to use the praises of God to combat every crisis the devil throws at us!

May the LORD bless Nigeria, American and Israel and take care of us; May the LORD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the Lord lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!
