"Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth" (2 Tim. 2:15).

Someone who reads about how I took my authority over the spirits binding my brother might say, "I believe I'll try that." It won't work if you try it. I didn't just try it, I did it!

Just because someone sees a traffic policeman exercising his authority doesn't mean they can run out in front of the cars and say, "I believe I'll try that." No one would obey them. Now, if they would put on a policeman's uniform and put a whistle in their mouth, people would stop. They would recognize the authority behind the policeman.

Believers sometimes hear how someone else used their authority, and they think, "I'll try that because I heard him say it. It worked for him, so it will work for me." Satan knows they are not convinced of their authority, and when they try to act on God's Word without really having the Word built into their spirits, and without having the solid foundation of it built into their lives, the devil will defeat them - and defeat them soundly.

But when you've built a foundation of the Word of God in you, and you act on God's Word, you'll defeat the devil in every combat!

Confession: I study to show myself approved unto God. I build the truths of God's Word into my life and spirit. I am convinced by God's Word of my authority. I cannot be defeated. And the devil knows it!
