For too long we have let the devil steal so much from us, and this is our time to take back everything he has stolen. “To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.” (Ecclesiastes 3:1) KJV
It’s time to take back our children. The devil is trying to destroy our children, and he’s using different devices to do it. We need to stand up in our authority and tell the devil you can’t have our children, we’re taking them back. I command you in the name of Jesus to take your hands off them right now because they belong to God. “Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” (Luke 10:19) NKJV
It’s time to take back our blessings. We have allowed the devil to take so many of our blessings, and it’s time for us to take them all back. Our blessings are worth fighting for, so tell the devil you can’t have any more of my blessings, I’m taking them back. “Wherever you go and whatever you do, you will be blessed.” (Deuteronomy 28:6) NLT
It’s time to take back our joy. The devil doesn’t care who he uses to steal our joy. He will come through our spouse, children or co-workers. He knows just what buttons to push to take us over the edge to make us upset. In moments such as these, we have to get mad with the devil and tell him I refuse to let you have my joy, I’m taking it back so I can rejoice in the Lord. “Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice.” (Philippians 4:4) KJV
It’s time to take back our praise. When we praise the Lord, it silences the devil, and he knows this. That’s why he tries to keep us feeling down and out over what we’re going through. However we have to let him know he can’t have our praise, we’re taking it back so we can praise the Lord in our good and bad times. “I will bless the LORD at all times: his raise shall continually be in my mouth.” (Psalm 34:1) KJV
It’s time to take back our healing. If you have been sick for a while now and the devil is trying to make you feel God can’t heal you, tell the devil God is healing me right now, and you can’t have my healing, I’m taking it back. “For I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith the Lord.” (Jeremiah 30:17) JJV
So be encouraged today and always remember: “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” (John 10:10) NKJV
