‘They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony.’ Revelation 12:11 NKJV
Irene Park became a committed Christian. Her story is remarkable. She said she was once a high witch in the state of Florida, seducing boys and girls into occult activities. She stated that the children she could never reach were those whose parents protected them by praying over them in the name of Jesus, standing on the merits of Christ’s atoning blood.
Today the occult has made its way into some of our public school systems under the guise of ‘pluralism’ and ‘free speech’. If you’re a parent, you should be concerned! It’s wise to give your child a mobile phone so they can contact you in emergencies. But the most powerful defence you can give them is praying over them in the name of Jesus and standing on the merits of His shed blood. Jesus defeated Satan at the cross. And today He’s saying to you, ‘My victory is your victory, and My authority is your authority—use it!’ You must acknowledge the existence of the devil, but you must not be afraid of him because ‘greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world.’ (1 John 4:4 KJV) To deny the existence of Satan or underestimate his power gives him the advantage over you. But God has given you the key to overcoming Satan’s power in your life: ‘And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony.’ Start declaring what the blood of Jesus has done on your behalf. When you do, you’ll begin to walk in victory.
