HANDLE THE STRONG MAN
(#1 Daily Devotional Tract by Dr. Isaiah & Lianna Wealth)
📆 Friday, 4th August, 2017.
📜 SCRIPTURAL TEXT:
“When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in place. But when a stronger than he shall come upon him and overcome him. He taketh from him all his armor wherein he trusted, and divided his spoils.”
🔹 🔹 🔹
The Devil is the “strong man” that does not want people to be saved. He has the vision to steal from them, kill and destroy them, heaping miseries upon their souls while holding them in the bondage of sin. Everyone who is ignorant of the salvation in Christ Jesus is under his influence.
However, our scriptural text today shows us that as witnesses, we come as the “stronger man”, walking in the authority of Jesus. We can bind him and set souls free, using the name of Jesus. Every true witness should learn to bind the devil and demons that hold back souls that need to be saved in captivity. This is crucial.
Even after a soul has already been saved, the devil will make several efforts to have such a soul back. It is of paramount importance therefore that we constantly bind the devil that wants the soul back. This way, we can resist the devil until he gives up on that soul to the Glory of God. Halleluyah!

🌏 CHRISTIAN MISSION FOCUS
Let’s pray for Panama 🇵🇦…
The nation is almost 100% Christian. Only 3% are unreached with the Gospel. However the Christian body isn’t doing much of missionary work. The main obstacles to greater mission being lack of unity, lack of vision and lack of training.
🙏🏼We are praying for the churches in Panama that they will have a vision to reach out to neighbouring nations with the Gospel of Christ.
🔹 START-UP PRAYER:
Dear Father, I break every hold of the devil keeping men in bondage, I loose them to serve the Lord in Jesus name.
🔹 PRAYER OF REDEDICATION
Dear Father, I thank you for your mercies over me since the year began. I am grateful for your ever-abiding Presence in me and with me and I declare that my confidence is not in my own ability but in your Word. Help me to walk in faith throughout this month and to show forth your praises in all that I do. I consecrate my whole body, soul and spirit to you today. Let your Name be glorified in me in Jesus Name. Amen.
