That devil…he's always trying to get one over on you, isn't he? Want to know the one instance where he has to pay you back? And not only pay you back, but pay you back in a BIG way?!

I was supposed to be flying out to Pennsylvania this week. This is the second week of September and on my calendar I have the dates of Sept. 12-15 blocked off to speak at a woman's conference. I was speaking Thurs, Fri, Sat, then at a church Sunday morning.

But guess what? It's not happening! And yes…I'm ticked!

It breaks my heart knowing that this church split. Yep, it fell apart. Some people went this way, some that way. The pastor is in a whirlwind and doesn't know what to do. My heart is breaking for those people. The devil is messing with them. And it saddens and maddens me.

Lives Were Going to Change

I know that God was going to do something amazing in the lives of the women who were going to attend that conference. Those who are sick and tired of life, as they know it, were going to experience a heap of hope.

They were going to receive a freshening of God's Spirit to conquer the challenges in their lives. They were going to discover how to get out of their ruts.

My team and I planned it over a year ago. Stage props were constructed, decorations were purchased, power points were created, powerful messages prepped…all for nothing.

Are you feeling my pain?

I'm sure you are. I bet you've experienced changes in your calendar, or plans that have dropped. You too have experienced something stolen, something taken, and something eaten right out of your hand. You too, have seen things that made your heart ache when the devil messed with your stuff.

But I want to show you that it ain't over!

First, you have to know, this is so fun for the devil – trying to wreck havoc in your life:

John 10:10 NIV:The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.

The Bible tells us that it's the enemy's intention to steal from us. But, if you know what you’re entitled to, you can make him pay you back. And here is where it gets fun for us…because when a thief steals…

Proverbs 6:31 NLTBut if he is caught, he must pay back seven times what he stole…

Catch Him

Did you catch that? You have to catch him. He only pays you back if you catch him. So, wake up…it's not that you've been diagnosed with cancer like millions of others…it didn't just happen. The enemy is trying to steal your life. It's not that you and your spouse just got a divorce; the enemy stole your marriage from you. Are you tracking me?

Make Him Pay You Back

Know what I've been doing for the past week? Telling the devil what he's got to do for me. I've been reminding him of this scripture. I've been quoting it so he knows I know what I'm entitled to.

I'm entitled to have Satan replace that one speaking engagement that he stole with seven more! It's mine. The Bible says so. And guess what? Satan is at work right now creating opportunities for me to speak and change lives. How cool is that?!

Let the Enemy Know – That You Know

If you've had something stolen from you, let him know, you know, it ain't over! You're entitled to get paid back. Not just once either. Seven times. That's right – you take what you lost – and you multiply it by SEVEN. Hear me? Go for it!

What You Lost X's 7

Here's what I'd like for you to do. Email me and let me know what the devil is going to pay back in your life x's 7!!! Here's my personal email address: @Drlinda@lindatravelute.com. I can't wait to hear about what he's got to do for you! And I'm going to pray along with you that he restores everything he's taken from you…and more!

And, if you'd like to help me get one up on the devil and give him a one-two punch he wasn't expecting…help me fill my calendar with more speaking dates. I've got a message that will help people kick their faith into high gear and give them hope for their mess.

Help me not only recover that one speaking engagement but gain seven more! We can be in this together.

Let's make him pay! Hope to see you soon!

 

Many years ago a man conned his way into an orchestra although he could not play a note.  He would hold his flute against his lips, pretend to play but not make a sound. Then one day the leader requested a solo from each musician.

The man was panic-stricken.

On the day of his solo performance, he took poison and killed himself.

The explanation of his suicide led to a phrase that found its way into the English language:  “He refused to face the music.”

My question for you is simply this: 

Are you afraid to face the music?

Or, maybe I could ask… Are you panic-stricken?

Believers are killing themselves, in every area of their lives, simply because they refuse to face the music.

Don’t be one of them.

See, there are Christian believers dying of cancer. They are loosing their homes. They are busting up their marriages. Simply because they won’t stand and take their God given authority and face the music. They’d rather roll over and die. They are poisoning themselves with the lies of the enemy.

If this is you…if the devil is eating your lunch or hey, maybe he’s eating you…

Face the music.

How?

Grab your Bible, get reading, and start saying the things you read.

Yes, it’s simple. Say what you read. Just like when you were in school. Pretend if it helps, that you are in your little oral reading group. Read. Out loud. Listen to what you are reading.

Read your Bible till it gets down into your spirit and you start believing it. Read your Bible so the devil knows your getting a dose of truth to tackle his lies.

Get Your Facts Straight:

You do not have to die of cancer. You do not need to lose your home. Your marriage doesn’t have to bust up. You’re going to get this figured out. God’s going to help you. You’re a conqueror. Start acting like one.

Conquerors face the music.

Romans 8:37 AMP

Yet amid all these things we are more than conquerors and gain a surpassing victory through Him Who loved us.

As you read God’s promises out loud, it will put confidence in your spirit, fear in the enemy, and you will see things change. 

For example, take the scripture above. Read it out loud. Go ahead. I’ll wait.

…Did you read it? Good. Now, make that scripture personal. Like this: “Yet amid all these things, I am more than a conqueror and I am gaining a surpassing victory through Him Who loves me.” Nice, huh?

Read it again. No joke. Read it out loud. Again. And again. Read it until you memorize it. Repeat it. Think it. Repeat it again.

Get a little crazy and write it on a post-it note or index card and tape it to your mirror. Say it every time you go to the bathroom. Out loud. Every-time. Why?

Because sooner or later you’re going to begin to believe it. And when you do, you’ll see things change.

Ready?

I know you are. Get out there and face the music.
I’m rooting for ya!

Speaking & Booking

imageHave you ever stepped on a grape? Gross! You felt the juice squish under your foot, right? Nasty! If you’ve ever felt like you were losing your mind, let me show you how you can get peace by bruising Satan under your feet.

The word “bruise” in the Greek is used to describe the act of smashing and crushing grapes into wine.

Romans 16:20
Paul said, “And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet.

How to Crush Satan

This is the kind of bruising you can give the devil. It also means the act of snapping, breaking, and crushing bones. In fact it’s the idea of breaking bones so severely that they can never be mended or healed. Bones that have been utterly smashed and crushed beyond recognition.

So when Romans 16:20 says that Satan is bruised under your feet, this means that the devil has been subdued. Stuck. Squished like smashed grapes. Bones broken and crushed to pieces. That’s what’s going on under your foot. And if that’s his condition…

He can’t move!

….Unless he makes you believe he can.

How Satan Can Crush You

The only thing the enemy is good at is mind games. This is where he wins in our lives: in our minds. If he can make you think wrong things, he can make you speak wrong things, which will make you receive wrong things. That’s his game. He works in the mind. He really doesn’t have any power over you unless you give it to him with your thoughts and words.

If Satan Can Make You Think You’re Defeated, You Are

Because Jesus completely destroyed Satan’s power over you through his death and resurrection, Satan was smashed, crushed, and bruised by Jesus’ resurrection. If you believe that, then you can take the authority and power that belongs to you and use it.

But, if Satan can make you think you don’t have that power and authority, then he’s got ya – right where he wants ya! And that’s when you begin to think you’re defeated. And if he can make you think your defeated…you are. It’s that simple. He has no power over you unless you give it to him.

Satan is Just an Illusionist

So what do you do? You have to constantly remind yourself that Jesus already won the victory for you. Your win is already insured. Your healing, your financial breakthrough, your miracle has already been won. Just believe what Jesus has already accomplished and your right to have it.

You may have some things that have been trying to defeat you:

  • Habits you’ve had for years
  • Attitudes you’ve clung to
  • Grudges you can’t shake off
  • Struggles you seem glued to

You’re No Fool to Satan’s Games

At the cross of Christ, the power over those things was broken. Their power over you was utterly crushed. Now it’s time for you to do some crushing. Quite being a fool to Satan’s games. With the God of Peace backing you up, you’re a lot bigger than the devil.

So stand up tall, hold your head high, and remind Satan that you’re smarter than he is. He’s not pulling the wool over your eyes anymore. Tell him what the Word of God says, this will let him know you believe it. And since you know what is rightfully yours – he can just back off! And that he will.

Ready? Go crush that sucker!
