Don’t confront the devil with empty zeal but with an understanding that he is a defeated devil. Some young people get over-excited and go to face the devil with zeal instead of knowledge.
God doesn’t want you to confront the devil with beliefs; He wants you to confront the devil with knowledge.
We went to a village in those days for mission work and a false prophet also came to that village. He was ringing the bell around the streets, asking the villagers to meet him in front of the king’s house because he had a message for them from God. So, I went to meet him and confronted him. I asked who sent him and he asked if I was trying to resist him. I told him that God sent me to that village, and He did not tell me that He was sending another person to the same village. Then we concluded to meet at the king’s palace. I got some of the students to come along and said to them, “Let’s go and have fun tonight.”
We got to the palace, sat down and the man wanted to start preaching. The first thing he did was to offer me his Bible to read. I declined his offer and told him that we didn’t carry the same kind of spirit. He started his escapade and was teaching all kinds of nonsense. I interrupted him and said the Bible did not say what he was saying. He then wanted to start telling the people visions and said he would show them their enemies. I told him that he would not see any vision that night. He tried all his deceitful methods, but nothing worked. I frustrated the man so much that he could not do anything, and he left that village in shame.
PRAYER: Lord, my confidence is in You. I am made righteous in Christ, and I am bold as a lion in Jesus’ name. Amen!
