COLOSSIANS 1:13-14 NKJ  “ He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love,  in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins.”

Many people are afraid of the devil. As believers we should not be afraid of the devil, although we should be aware and on guard against his schemes (2 Corinthians 2:11). The only true power the devil holds over a believer now is the power of deception. If you do not know the truth the devil will take advantage of you. The only way to know the truth is to read, understand, and act on the Scriptures. The devil operates against you through fear and ignorance. God’s Word gives you the information that will set you free from both fear and ignorance (Hebrews 2:14-15). Jesus is your lord, and the devil has no power over you. You have been delivered from the devil’s authority. You are free, so devil should leave you alone! You are a child of light, and you should not have any fellowship with darkness!  Be sure to keep yourself from sin and idols!
