TRICKS; NOT POWER.

OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL
DATE: FRIDAY, 26TH MARCH 2021.
THEME: *TRICKS; NOT POWER.*

MEMORISE:
And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it. Colossians 2:15
READ: Hebrews 2: 14-15
14 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;
15 And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.
MESSAGE:
“God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power belongeth unto God.” Psalm 62:11
The above passage says that power belongs to God, not the devil. Many people erroneously believe that the devil is powerful. There is no greater lie than that.
Jesus Christ said:
“… All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.” Matthew 28:18
If all power belongs to Jesus, then no power is left for the devil; he is completely powerless. What the Bible says that we should be aware of are the wiles and devices of the devil (Ephesians 6:11,
2 Corinthians 2:11). He has no power at all, he is merely a trickster.
The devil is cunning, and this makes him dangerous so you must be careful not to fall into his trap.
You must however not ascribe to the devil what he does not possess; all power belongs to my Daddy, The Almighty God.
Like any good magician, the devil has mastered how to use certain elements, including human psychology, to make his tricks look real. He knows how to use different elements to make things up in order to look powerful, but he has no power. The reason the devil does things to deceive people is so that they can fear him. He will begin to whisper different things just to plant fear in your heart because he knows that the moment fear enters a person, faith is gone, and you need faith to move mountains.
If you are a friend of God, constantly seated with Him, you will be above all the tricks of the devil. It is only those who still live in sin that can be afraid of His tricks.
Ephesians1:21 says that Jesus is:
“Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:
Always remember all power belongs to Jesus. All the devil has are mere tricks.
KEY POINT:
Jesus has all the power; the devil only has tricks. Don’t be fooled.
