Revelation 12:11 And they have defeated him(the devil) by the blood of the Lamb and by their testimony.And they did not love their lives so much that they were afraid to die. 

I saw one of the most important movies of my lifetime called “War Room.” It was a movie about Spiritual warfare in marriage. Husbands and wives are going to have fights but the only way we can win is when we realize who is the true enemy. We have to have a strategy in order to defeat the devil. Our War Room is a designated space in our home where we go to God in prayer on behalf of our family. We must realize that we cannot change our spouses only God can do that. But if we use the right strategy we can overcome the enemy!

1.  We overcome by the blood of the Lamb. Jesus has already defeated the devil. His goal is to come into our homes to steal, kill, and destroy our relationships through lies and deceit. Whenever the enemy tries to come in and disrupt the peace of your home just plead the blood of Jesus over your family. There’s still power, wonder working power in the blood of the lamb!

2.  We overcome by the word of our testimony. Every time God answers a prayer in your life that becomes your testimony. You need a wall of witness in your home. Start writing down every answered prayer to remind yourself that you are more than an Overcomer through Christ Jesus! If you survived it and overcame it that’s not your shame. It’s your testimony!

3.  We overcome by not being afraid to die! Jesus said, “those who try to save their lives will lose them but those who lose their lives for the sake of Christ will find life!” We cannot shrink back in the face of adversity. God will fight for us when we stand for him.

Today it’s time to kick the devil out of your house. He has no authority over your life. Construct you a War Room in your house and go in there every day to talk to God and strategically lay out your prayers and scriptures. Then watch God do it!  If you haven’t done it, go see the movie “War Room” today!

Dear God,

Thank you for answering my prayers. Thank you for making me a better man. I haven’t been perfect but you’ve been faithful. Please continue to heal my family and our land. Forgive me of my sins and each day help me to look more like Jesus. I come against everything the enemy has been trying to bring against us and send back to the pits of hell. You are greater than any problem that we are facing and I am confident that will shall overcome and this too shall pass. 

In Jesus Name,

Amen!
