Hey guys! I’m back! And happy new year!
Wow, what a year it has been. Isn’t it crazy how Satan has tried to take us out?!
I saw a TikTok recently that really drove home the fact that Satan isn’t as tough as he wants us to believe.
In the video, there is a son who is enacting a scene from a TV show. In it, a guy is egging on another guy saying, “You and me; right now, we’re having it out. Come on, come on!”
The taller guy slaps the smaller, bolder guy in the face, and the smaller guy starts crying! To me, the taller guy is us and the smaller one is Satan as he tries to scare us.
The good news is that God is on our side, and when you call upon the name of Jesus, Satan cowers in fear. Isn’t that cool?!
Hear me out: it is also in the Bible! Jesus said, “And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues.” Mark 16:17 (NIV).
And there are many other examples of Jesus casting out demons! We, as followers of Jesus, need to stop being so scared of calling on Jesus’ name! We have become so much like the smaller guy in my story, and we need to stand up in the authority that God has given us as his children!
Enough is enough! I’m calling everyone out, including myself! Rise up brothers and sisters and take hold of the authority God has provided!
Now is the time! RISE UP!
Remember, God loves you and so do I!
