Daily Devotional

Overcoming The Enemy

By Gena Matthews
This week's topic: Your Testimony

It is interesting to me, the depths the enemy will go to keep us from sharing our testimony with others. He tries to diminish the importance of our individual testimony by sending arrows of doubt as to the effectiveness of our testimony.

He tries to use guilt and condemnation to keep us quiet, when the testimony of what we have been through is actually what will set others free. He tries to use fear of rejection to keep us from testifying to others because we do not believe our Christian brothers and sisters can handle the truth of our testimony.

"And they overcame him (the enemy) by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony." Revelations 12:11a

God has given us authority  "over all the power of the enemy" according to Luke 10:19b. The means by which we exercise this authority is by speaking. There is power in your testimony. We must share our testimony with others and continue to overcome the enemy.

Scripture Of The Day: "I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you." - Luke 10:19v (NIV)
