She asked me, “Is Satan under the floor? Would we see Satan when we dig the ground?” With that question, I did a brief exposition on the reality of the spirit realm with her. She got insight.

Friend, if your knowledge or theology is faulty, your manifestation would be faulty. Wrong teaching and believing equal wrong living; right believing equals right living. There is no place for ignorance and the ignorant in the Kingdom. The devil is a master at exploiting people’s ignorance to get an advantage over them (2 Corinthians 2:11).

“Now concerning spiritual things, brothers, I do not want you to be ignorant” (1 Corinthians 12:1). Ignorance has destroyed many people today than the devil has (Hosea 4:6). Spiritual things are mysteries to the uninitiated but to us, it is an open secret. God does not hide things from us, He hides things for us (Deuteronomy 29:29, 1 Corinthians 2:8-10).

You need to be conscious of your placement in God and life. We have been placed far above principalities and powers (Ephesians 1:19-23, 2:5-6). I tell people, “If you tell me the devil is pursuing or mesmerizing you, I would ask, ‘where did you meet him?'” Someone has left his place, and it’s definitely not the devil; you are not at the same level with him.

Stop looking up when praying against the devil, look down; that’s where he is. See yourself up there! We function in this Kingdom by revelation. It is revelation that brings elevation. It is light that brings flight (Galatians 2:2, Ephesians 1:15-18). You have been raised with Christ; put your mind where your spirit is (Colossians 3:1-3). Operate from your spiritual position so you can get an advantage in the physical.

Don’t let anything mesmerize you. Don’t let any demon harass you. Don’t permit any sickness in your body. Don’t let any situation and circumstance cause you to despair. You are from above and are above all (John 3:31). You are of God and have overcome (1 John 4;4, 5:4). Your “In-Christ” reality and consciousness is the game changer anytime, any day!
