“Pleading” is actually a legal term, and in a court of law it is “a formal statement of the cause of an action or defense.” Think of it like a lawyer pleading his case before the judge. He presents evidence and facts to support his case.

When the devil comes to steal, kill and destroy in our lives, we plead our case before the courts of heaven by reminding God of His Word and covenant with us through the blood of Jesus. The blood of Jesus established a new and better covenant between us and a Holy God (Hebrews 8:6-7, 9:11-14, 22, 12:24).

That means when the accuser says we’re guilty, our plea before God, the Righteous Judge, is the blood of Jesus. The blood is our defense. It declares we are not guilty; instead, we are free from all penalty of sin. The blood kicks Satan out of the affairs of our lives and the lives of our families.

You can see the curse all around you and maybe it’s in your life somewhere, but now you have a choice—to use the blood or not. You have authority over and can stand against any curse or bad thing in the Name of Jesus and by the blood of Jesus. The blood is powerful enough to remove all evidence of the curse in your life!

Revelation 12:11 (KJV) tells us, “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony.”

The blood that Jesus shed for you has enormous, great power, and you should be saying so. Testify and declare it over your life by faith today!
