A Pleasant Good Morning To YOU
A Blessed New Week
You Can Live a Victorious Christian Life
‘Don’t let yourself think about ways to indulge your evil desires.’
Romans 13:14 NLT
If you’re serious about living a victorious Christian life you must do three things:
1) Burn the bridges to your old lifestyle.
Any bridge you refuse to burn gives Satan an invitation and re-entry point into your life.
2) Establish prayer as a top priority.
Prayer puts a shield of divine protection around you; don’t start your day without it. Jesus said, ‘Stay alert; be in prayer so you don’t wander into temptation’ (Matthew 26:41 MSG).
Unless you acknowledge your vulnerability for sin, you won’t pray against it and you’ll end up experiencing defeat. The most effective weapon the enemy has against you — is you. Your old nature must be crucified daily, and prayer is how you do it.
3) Fill your mind with God’s Word.
Jesus said, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God’ (Matthew 4:4 KJV). Three different times in the wilderness Satan tried to get Jesus to submit to temptation, and each time Jesus responded, ‘It is written’ (vv. 4, 7, 10 KJV). After the third attempt Satan gave up and left Him alone. Why? Because he can’t prevail against you when you know God’s Word and stand on it. So have your ‘It is written’ armour ready. Build yourself up on the Word of God before the attack comes.
