Daily Devotional for July 24
I chased my enemies and caught them; I did not stop until they were conquered. I struck them down so they could not get up; they fell beneath my feet. —Psalm 18:37-38
David recounts how God gave him overwhelming victory over any and every enemy that attacked him. He did not enter into agreements with his attackers—he defeated them! You must begin to see your spiritual enemies as they truly are— already defeated in Christ and subject to your spiritual authority. Make no compromises and take no prisoners! Be ruthless against every high thought that exalts itself above the knowledge of God (2 Corinthians 10:5), never wavering in your spiritual warfare against God’s enemies. Paul states that in all these things you are more than a conqueror through Him who loved you (Romans 8:37). Declare with him, “And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from his love. Death can’t, and life can’t. The angels can’t, and the demons can’t. Our fears for today, our worries about tomorrow, and even the powers of hell can’t keep God’s love away. Whether we are high above the sky or in the deepest ocean, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord” (vv. 38-39). Go forward against your enemies, and don’t stop until they have been crushed under your feet!
