Today I want to share from the devotional on our Spoken Word Church website!

Don't Accommodate Your Enemy. Your real enemy and adversary is Satan. Always remember this: He wants to destroy you. Don't yield. Don't negotiate. It is unnatural to attempt peace with an enemy. You must conquer an enemy. "Neither give place to the devil." {Ephesians 4:27}

"Place" here is the Greek word "topos", which means: a spot; location (position, home); opportunity. This same word is translated "licence" in the KJV in Acts 25:16! The message here is that we should avoid those thoughts, words and actions that would give the devil an opportunity, an open door, or the right to have an entrance into our lives! He always attacks with thoughts that are contrary to the promises and the TRUTH of God's Word. That IS the only weapon that he has to use against us. He is crafty in his use of it, but Holy Spirit IN us is so much wiser! Rely on Him moment by moment! When you find that you may have missed it in some way by getting out of love, off of faith, or some other sin, then immediately 'confess' (acknowledge, admit) it and receive the forgiveness and cleansing from ALL unrighteousness that is promised to every born again believer in 1 John 1:9! The blood of Jesus continually cleanses us from sin (1 John 1:7), but we still must receive that by faith, just as we must receive anything and everything that God has given to us! When we live this way, the enemy will find NO place of entrance into our lives! NONE! Dare to believe what the Word of God says about you! Become intimate with Holy Spirit, your Helper, and He will continually remind you of the TRUTH! Remind yourself of who you are - IN HIM! And remind the devil of it, too! Be bold in your dealings with him. He has no power over you! AMEN! Here is Hillsong Worship with "Who You Say I Am":

Shalom in Him!
