Galatians 2:20 NKJV
I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.
So many believers waste efforts daily battling with Satan. They memorize scripture to throw at him. And yet where is the battle?
If we are walking in the spirit there is no battle. The only battle is Satan trying to control the dead man.
We are alive in Christ. He already won the battle. As we stay in the flesh And allow a battle to go on we have walked away from who we are in Christ.
There is only Christ in me and I in him. As I read his word and communicate with Him my old mind is renewed and there is no battle with Satan.
So when Satan attacks we don't go on the defensive. We remember who we are in Christ and repeat those scriptures getting out of our old way of thinking and into who we are in Christ.
Thank you Jesus for winning the battle at the cross. Thank you Jesus for abiding in me.
