Keep the Devil on the Run

When he speaks a falsehood, he speaks what is natural to him, for he is a liar [himself] and the father of lies and of all that is false.
                                                                                             (John 8:44)

The devil lies to us, and if we aren't aggressive against him and don't stop listening to his lies, he will run our lives. He goes about like a roaring lion (see 1 Peter 5:8), but we have the Lion of Judah-Jesus, inside us. We are the ones who should be doing the roaring!

We should keep ourselves so spiritually attuned that when the devil makes one move toward us, we pick up exactly what he's trying to do and back him down immediately. It should take only a few seconds.

The devil is always trying to come against us. As long as we back down, he keeps on coming. If we make one move against him in the authority Jesus made available to us, the devil has to back down.

We need to continue standing in our authority against him. If we stop, he will start moving against us, backing us up. The devil is a liar, a bully, a bluff, a deceiver. He comes like a lion, but he is not the lion. We believers in Jesus Christ have the power of the Greater One inside of us. "Greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world." (1 John 4:4 KJV)

Know the Word well enough that the minute a thought comes into your head that doesn't line up with God's Word, you can say to the devil, "Liar! No, I'm not listening to you." You can spend your life backing up and hiding from the devil, or you can spend it forcing him to back up.
