Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out. And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me – John 12:31-32
The Lord Jesus made a powerful statement while addressing His disciples during the closing moments of His earthly ministry. He said, “…for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me” (John 14:30). When you study the original Greek construction of that verse, what Jesus actually meant was that Satan had nothing to his advantage in Him (Jesus). What a confession!
Does Satan have anything in you? “No”; you might answer. However, it’s not just by saying “No”; you have to make such declaration by faith in the Word of God, knowing that when Christ reproduced you through His Word, Satan had nothing in you. James 1:18 says, “Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth….” 1 Peter 1:23 says, “Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth forever.” The Word of God that gave birth to you is perfect and incorruptible; therefore, nothing of darkness is in you.
Some people unknowingly invite the devil into their lives when they entertain fear, doubt, unbelief, sickness, infirmity, and failure. If any of these tries to attack you, declare, “The prince of this world has nothing in me!” Don’t bring anything of the devil into your life through negative talking. Your confession should be, “I have the light of life: there’s nothing in my life that produces darkness or death; there’s nothing in my life that produces failure; there’s nothing in my life that produces weakness! The Lord is the strength of my life.”
Ephesians 4:27 tells us not to give place to the devil; that shows he has no place in your life except you give him one. Don’t give Satan a chance (James 4:7); he’s got nothing to his advantage in you because you’re born of the Word. That’s the reality.

Dear heavenly Father, I thank you for giving me victory over Satan, the world, and all the negative circumstances of life. I declare by faith, in the Name of Jesus, that the devil has nothing to his advantage in me! Therefore, sickness, poverty, fear, darkness and pain are not a part of my daily experience of life, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
