When Satan tells you that you cannot do something, do you accept what he says, or do you challenge him? When he gives you a report of bad news, do you accept it or do you refute it everytime, in the language of the spirit? When he insinuates that you will depart this earth if you fail to obey his commands, do you again challenge him in the language of the spirit? And when you challenge him, do you listen in your heart to hear exactly what your Holy Spirit said to him? The Holy Spirit Of God is in you, in part, for the purpose of challenging anything and everything that the devil says to you. If you fail to do so, you are accepting Satan's lie as a replacement for God's abiding truth.
When you challenge Satan, you not only are confirming God's promises, you also are preserving your claim to eternal life. You are being proactive in asserting your right to govern the circumstances of your life, and you are undermining Satan's power over your thought processes, your daily life, your family and friends, and your future. You are saying to him, "The Lord God Almighty is the only one who has final authority to direct the circumstances of my life, and his promises are all positive and uplifting, never threatening, and always true.
