Deliberately shut the door on the current attacks from the enemy. There is no reason for you to be a victim of your circumstances, and again I remind you that you have been given the supreme authority to overcome every work of the flesh and the devil. I have empowered you to attain victory. Feeling sorry for yourself is counter-productive; you cannot win when you are already defeated, says the Lord. Rise up in the strength I have provided to cause you to triumph. 1 John 5:4 For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world––our faith.
