Fight From Victory, Not 4 Victory

Ephesians 6:11 - Put on the whole amour of God, that u may be able 2 stand against the wiles of
the devil.
God does not need u 2 defeat the devil today. Jesus has already done it & given u the victory. (Colossians 2:15, Romans 8:37) Your part is 2 enforce the victory by simply standing your ground, which is victory ground. In other words, u “fight” from victory ground by standing. You don’t fight 4 victory.

In Ephesians 6:10–18, the passage on spiritual warfare, the word “wrestle” appears only once (verse 12), while the word “stand” appears 4 times — “stand against the wiles of the devil”, “withstand in the evil day”, “having done all, 2 stand”, “Stand therefore”. (Verses 11, 13–14) Four times the Holy Spirit tells us 2 stand. Yet, many Christians are focusing on wrestling their way 2victory!
My friend, u are already on victory ground. You already have everything in Christ. (1 Corinthians 3:21, 23) U are already blessed with every spiritual blessing in Christ. (Ephesians 1:3). The devil knows this. And that is why his tactic is 2 deceive u & make u think that u don’t have the victory.
So when he attacks u by saying, “Look at that small sum in your bank account! How are u going 2 pay the bills?” stand your ground. Declare, “I am not trying 2b rich, I am rich. In Christ, I am rich!" It doesn’t matter how much u have in the bank. You are rich bcoz u are in Christ. And as the need arises, the supply will be there if u believe that u are already rich.

It is the same with healing. The devil will try 2 attack u with symptoms in your body. He will try 2 put pain in your body, & make u feel weak here & there, so that u think that u are still sick. He is trying 2 make u believe that u don’t have your healing. That is the time 2b conscious of Jesus’ finished work & declare, “I am not trying 2 get healed, I am healed! I am standing on the victory ground which Jesus has given me!”
Beloved, it makes a world of difference when u fight from victory & not for victory!
