The bible tells us that the devil stands daily to accuse the children of God. He finds a reason to constantly accuse us, of sin and wrong doing because he wants to paint us as unholy. Imagine that while God declared us righteous, the devil looks for reasons to call us sinners. “Who shall bring any charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies” (Romans 8:33). We are crucified with Christ, so we no longer live in the flesh, but Christ lives in us. Therefore because we are new creatures, then our sin nature is no longer active.
We have been redeemed by Jesus and so no weapons of the devil will prosper against us. We use our God given authority to silence every voice, that stands in judgement to accuse God’s children. “blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross” (Colossians 2:14). In doing this, Jesus made a public spectacle of satan and his cohorts by triumphing over them. Satan thought that Jesus’s crucifixion was his victory, but Jesus’s resurrection showed the devil that he lost the battle.
We enjoy the benefits of the freedom of salvation and the protection through the blood of Jesus Christ. God is our vindication against the enemy and every wrong done to us will be vindicated. God is our recompense and restitution. Our God of justice is invested in us reclaiming anything lost or stolen from us. In Him we can learn to take back anything that the enemy has stolen. “People do not despise a thief if he steals to satisfy his appetite when he is hungry, but if he is caught, he will pay sevenfold; he will give all the goods of his house” (Proverbs 6:30-31).
We declare this our season for God’s vindication and recompense. We are waiting for God to avenge us and to restore what was lost or stolen. We approach the throne room of God to make petitions for the wrong done to us. Our God is a good father and Jesus stands at His right hand to make intercession for us. God will not keep silent and His hand is not too short that He cannot save. God never sleeps or slumbers and His eyes are always open, beholding the good and the evil. “The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace” (Exodus 14:14).
