Satan will tempt you to believe that if God is for you, there should be some kind of miraculous and instantaneous deliverance from a difficult situation. Not so! The only basis for victory is to stand on the Word of God and withstand the devil on the grounds of what God has spoken. The enemy can come against you in any way but you will not be overcome or persuaded that you are anything other than what God says you are. Paul knew in whom he believed, and was persuaded that God is able to keep what he entrusted to Him until the day He returns. For Paul, the question is settled. The enemy cannot come and persuade him any differently.
The Bible declares you are in right standing with Christ if you have truly believed on Him and received Him as your Lord and Savior. The enemy can come against you in any way he wants, but you will not be overcome. The Lord has given you righteousness, or the right to stand before Him, that cannot be taken away. Therefore, you have the power to condemn every tongue that rises against you in judgment. Yes, you have battles, but these enemies have already been overcome. It means that you are free from the dominion of sin, thanks be to God. Sin has no right to rise and govern your life anymore. You are secure! Jesus said, “You are in the Father’s hand and nobody can take you out.”
