Commentary from Pastor Michael White:
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. – Gen 1:1

What was the first thing God did? He created. He is creative! He builds up. He exhorts. He encourages! He blesses!

It is the enemy – Satan, not God – who is destructive. Take an inventory of your life. Has your body been damaged by disease? That is the destructive work of Satan. Do your relationships seem like they have been damaged beyond repair? That is the tearing-down work of the enemy! Does your hope in a better future need a resurrection? That is the accuser (Rev 12:10), trying to keep you from accomplishing God’s best for your life.

God creates; the enemy destroys. We should never look at life’s curses and assume they are from God, for that would be to attribute the work of Satan to the Creator. We should never blame God for the havoc the enemy is trying to wreak! We should never tolerate and permit negativity in our life that God wants to eradicate.

God wants to bless you; He doesn’t want to kill you! Don’t accept the work of Satan as if it were from God. If you know Satan is the one messing with your life – not God – then that means it’s time to tell Satan to leave, in Jesus name! This is the Year of Zero Tolerance! Take authority over the enemy, and tell him to go!

…that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth… – Phil 2:10


Father, you created me to thrive. You created me to prosper! You created me to do “greater things” (Jn 14:12). I rebuke the work of Satan in my life, in Jesus’ name. I want the enemy to go – and I want the Holy Spirit to come – right now. I thank You for this AWESOME year ahead!
