"Now is the judgment of this world.
Now the ruler of this world will be cast out.
I know I just posted here a couple of days ago, but my devotional reading was just so wonderful this morning I just have to share it! Hope it is an encouragement to someone else as well.
"The enemy has no right to hold you back from realizing any of the benefits God has promised you in His Word. They are yours. And yet, it's quite likely that you are vividly aware today of an area of real captivity in your life.
I urge you to come before God with boldness today, asking Him in Jesus' name not to let the enemy steal one bit of the victory God has for you. We must not allow intimidation or fear (bold lettering mine) to imprison us in any area. Remember, Satan can presume no authority in your life. He will do his best to bluff you. Don't let him. Instead listen closely. The liberty bell is ringing."
There is victory in Jesus. The bell of freedom is ringing today!
