Don't Glorify the Enemy
For the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it. Genesis 13:15
God made the promise in Genesis 13:15 to Abraham and his offspring. To see yourself as a possessor of the promised land and all the promises of God, you must also have a proper image of the integrity and omnipotence of God. Numbers 23:19 notes that God is not a man that He should lie. We often limit God by not exercising our faith and believing that He will do what He promised for us. Another factor that prevents us from possessing the promises of God is our view of the enemy. We must always remember that Satan is a fallen angel and not the reciprocal or opposite of God. While it is true that God created the enemy with power, he is not authorized to use that power on earth. A city's police officer may have power but is not authorized to use that power on the state's highways for example. God gave authority over this earth to man which is the reason God himself had to come as a man. The only power that the enemy has is the power we give him as we yield to the lies, temptations, and fiery darts that he throws at our minds. His power is displayed as a byproduct of the improper actions we take as we yield to those thoughts. While it is important not to be ignorant of the enemy's devices according to 2 Corinthians 2:11, we are not to constantly focus on his perceived power or what he is doing in our lives. Put things in their proper perspective. God is almighty, all powerful, and has given us the privilege of allowing His Spirit (the greater one) to live in us (1 John 4:4). When you have a proper image of God as highly exalted above all, you will begin to believe his integrity and power over all the works of the enemy with all your heart and possess all His promises!
