SCRIPTURE: And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. Luke 10:18
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Knowing that you are dealing with a defeated devil keeps him under your control.
There was a fight between Evander Holyfield and Mike Tyson, two American professional boxers, many years ago.
Before the fight, Mike Tyson was the heavyweight boxing title holder. He was the champion in charge. Evander Holyfield had a heart condition and he was prayed for. He was healed and decided to give his life to Christ. He became a dedicated Christian and always attended a church in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. At the same time, Mike Tyson was busy missing road and squandering his life carelessly.
Then Evander Holyfield engaged Mike Tyson in the fight. The powerful, title-holding Mike Tyson lost his title to Evander Holyfield.
Mike Tyson had about one hundred Rolls Royce cars and also one hundred suits to match the colour of each of the Rolls Royce (from what I heard).
He lost the title to Evander Holyfield and crashed.
Now this is the point: that Evander Holyfield beat Mike Tyson does not mean that Mike Tyson cannot beat another boxer. It only means that Mike Tyson is under control where Evander Holyfield is present.
How does this apply to your life? Jesus beat the devil. He made a public show of Satan. He defeated the devil. He stripped the devil of his title, but the devil is still on rampage on the earth against those who are ignorant of this revelation. Even God’s children who have decided to allow the devil have his way in their lives are still suffering under his wickedness.
Beloved, it is important for you to understand the fallen position of the enemy. Know that you are dealing with a defeated devil. You are dealing with a fallen devil. No matter how wicked the witches and wizards in your community are, their father is a defeated devil. Knowing that you are dealing with a defeated devil keeps him under your control.
Remember this: Knowing that you are dealing with a defeated devil keeps him under your control.
- Go through today’s message once again, prayerfully, and ask God to speak to you afresh.
- Always understand that you are dealing with a defeated devil and all his works are under your feet.
PRAYER: Thank You Lord for showing me the fallen state of the devil. I decree that I am seated with You in heavenly places and satan is under my control, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

AMAZING FACT: When the Earth rotates, the bulge shifts on both sides of the planet according to the position of the moon. In full swing, this causes sea levels to rise and fall which are ocean tides.
PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: In the Name of Jesus, I decree the destruction of every dominion of the devil over your life in Jesus’ Name.
