4. A Prayer to Be Scripturally-Versed
Slide 4 of 5
The Word of God promises victory in any trial or stronghold by the devil. Hebrews 2:14-15 contains the source or origin of all of our victories through Christ. We should forever rejoice and take to remembrance that “since therefore the children share in flesh and blood, he himself likewise partook of the same things, that through death he might destroy the one who has the power of death, that is, the devil, and deliver all those who through fear of death were subject to lifelong slavery.”
Surely if our Savior was able to conquer all sin by his death and resurrection after being tempted and tried in all the ways of man, He is able to release the strongholds that we face in our life.
Man’s biggest fear and stronghold is that dread of death. However, Jesus Christ, our Redeemer and Savior, is victorious over this stronghold, which is insurmountable by man’s power. He tells us in Relevation 1:18 that “I died, and behold I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys of Death and Hades.”
No matter what addiction or circumstance that may seemingly have a grasp onto our being, we have a Savior who is willing and able. He has the keys for us to declare freedom from any of these bondages.
Dear God, I pray in your son’s precious name that I have a desire to read and apply your Word to my heart and daily path. I humbly request your words be etched into my mind and memory as I read and study them.
I pray that in times of indecision and temptation that I will be able to recollect these great promises and apply them to my circumstance. I realize our enemy will attempt to distort your word, but I pray for the ability to recite the precious verses, which give me the victory no matter the lure from the world.
I rejoice today because of my victory, but give testimony of your faithfulness in the past and know you will be with me going forward.
