"Dear Satan: I am no longer yours."
There is a great song out there called "Dear X- (You Don't Own Me) by Christian music group -Disciple, off the album Horseshoes and Hand Grenades-released in 2010. In the song is a particular passage I want to speak on.....
"Go ahead, you're never going to take me. You can bend, but you're not going to break me. I was yours, I'm not yours anymore. You don't own me"
"Because God's children are human beings-made of flesh and blood-the Son also became flesh and blood. For only as a human being could he die, and only by dying could he break the power of the devil, who had the power of death. - Hebrews 2:14
The bible does say that for now the devil is the ruler of this world (2 Corinthians 4:4). He has given power that he uses to inflict pain and suffering on the battlefield. Jesus however has the ultimate power, and displayed it on the Cross. This rendered Satan's power useless (Colossians 2:15), as long as you surrender your life to Jesus Christ (salvation) (1 John 1:9).
As Christians that does not mean while on this earth we are immune from sick and sadness or pain and suffering, it will continue to come out way. Only now in Jesus can you have true love...true healing, and the promise that someday when the evil of this world is done, you will have the life you have always dreamed of. A Utopia called Heaven. Where happiness and joy is known, and Sin and pain have been forgotten.Remember daily, you are in Jesus you have more hope and promise of the best everlasting life possible then anyone on the planet who is not saved. So when you have those rough days remember that promise given to you( John 14:2).You can stand on Jesus promise and say Dear Satan: you may bend me, but you will not break me !!!
I encourage you to listen to this song. It will empower you...it will strengthen you. Christian songs are yet another tool that Jesus allows us to listen to, and use as a witness tool so we can stand firm and continue our walk on this battlefield until it's time to go home.
Lord willing until next time...stay Armor Up!
