They overcame him(the devil) by the Blood of the Lamb and the word of their testimony; and they did not love their lives unto the death. Rev. 12:11
Come rest in Jesus’ love.
This means you rest under His cleansing Blood covering for your righteousness, identity, & security.
You testify to His truth with His love by His Spirit to each you meet(if only to say “The Lord bless you!” or so much more). Finally, you stop loving your life; & you start living every present moment for the One who died for your eternal security.
Stop letting the devil distract your work in Christ; start letting Christ destroy the devil’s works in your sphere of influence. Right now.
Stop striving in man’s ways in your power; start thriving in Jesus’ ways in His.
I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but, Christ who lives in me. Therefore, this life I now live in the body I live for the Son of God who loved me and gave Himself for me. Gal. 2:20
Make Gal. 2:20 your profession to begin your day. Ask Him to help you live Rev. 12:11 through the end of your days.
