Revelation 12:11 “And they overcame him by reason of the Blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; and they did not love their lives so as to shy away from death.” .
Yesterday’s devotional spoke of what the Blood of Jesus did for us: it purchased our freedom and destroyed the effects of the curse of sin. What it also does, is it gives us the power to overcome the works of darkness. It says they overcame the devil because of 3 things: the Blood of Jesus, their testimony, they weren’t afraid of death.
When there is a work of darkness you are facing – sickness, financial issues, work issues, etc – you apply the Blood of Jesus on it, testify (or speak of) of the power of the Blood and live your life surrendered to God; always aware that you live dependent on His power to overcome. That is the overcomer’s life! You live by His Word and by what He made available for you.
“Abba, Your Word says that I overcome by the Blood of the Lamb. It is written You have taken me out of the kingdom of darkness and that I rule over that kingdom because Christ is in me. So now, I face the kingdom of darkness that has come against me in this situation (name it) and I overcome its work as I plead the Blood of Jesus on it, and I say: the Blood of Jesus works against you! Thank You for the victory that Jesus already paid for and is mine through the power of the Cross and the shed Blood of Jesus Christ. Amen!”
