Listening to the Father’s Heart – August 14
by Os Hillman
Son, it is important for you to realize you live in a war zone. Every day I see casualties of this war. Many of my sons and daughters live as if they are tourists instead of soldiers. If you only knew how much the enemy of your soul wants to destroy you and your destiny. “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour” (1 Pet 5:8). You must understand your authority to defeat Satan and his underlings. They literally roam the earth seeking to deceive and derail my sons and daughters. My grace and my power are far stronger than his schemes. It is knowing and applying this truth that ultimately makes you and others free (Jn 8:32). If you perceive that the adversary has more power than he does, you will faint. What you perceive to be true drives your reality. Satan is a toothless lion. Use the authority I have given you to dismantle his plans. I have already given you this power.
Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Luke 10:19.
And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. Matthew 16:19
