The devil’s Loss

The devil wants me to believe

God’s purpose for me will never be achieved

So he whispers in my ear

he tells me things my flesh wants to hear

his plan is to destroy me

he is at work day in and day out

he walks around and maliciously about

When I was born, he immediately placed a bet

he told Jesus, “I bet I ruin her yet.”


“While she’s young, I’ll make her forget

Why she needed You in the first place.

Her world is perfect and her dreams are ripe;

Jesus, when You’re ready, let me tamper with her life.

I’ll mess it all up, send my demons disguised her way.

She will duck and dodge and forget to pray

And how about her teens?

Let me give her depression

Send her confusion

Fill her with anger

Break her heart and disappoint her too

As she moves one step forward,

I’ll push her back two.


I bet You Jesus, she’ll curse Your name

Then run to me and give me Your fame

You protect her too much and

You gave her too many gifts

What will she do then, if she had so much to miss?”


Then the Lord, my God said,

“you just wait devil

Stop your ranting

Shut your mouth;

you didn’t win with Job

And you won’t win now.


I know my Father’s children,

Their weaknesses and strengths

They are not like you

And this one here will remain true.

This faithful soldier of mine

I trust her so

More than you will ever know.

I see her faith in Me and attentiveness to My Word

In addition to the prayers I’ve heard


you can take from her

But I’ll give

you can try to kill her

But I’ll let her live.”


The devil wants to destroy me

And take my life

But the devil has already lost the fight

It is God’s strength, grace and mercy

That sustains me

When I am weak

In God’s love, I will suffer no defeat.

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. (Ephesians 6: 10-13 NIV)

Dear Daddy,

Thank You for Your Salvation, Your mercy, and Your advocacy on my behalf. Thank You for fighting my battles and winning my victory. I thank You that weapons formed against me have not prospered. Thank You for your unfailing love and authority. I serve a mighty God! In Jesus’ Name, Amen!

Women of God, I EMPOWER you to remember and believe that our gracious, mighty Lord has overcome the world and has already won your battles against the enemy. The enemy was never a match for the Lord anyway and God’s love has saved you and delivered you. Walk confidently in your salvation and praise God for delivering you from the snares, traps, tricks, and bondage of the enemy. Stand knowing that even in trying times, you are not defeated because our Lord is the great Alpha and Omega!

Get your testimony on! What battles have God won for you?
