“the prince of this world is coming. He has no hold over me”
(John 14:30 NIV)

Grappling is a sport in which submission holds are frequently used to subdue an opponent. In the Bible Satan is referred to as the “prince of this world”. He attempts to put a hold on us by immobilizing us with guilt, depression, low self esteem, feelings of inadequacy and uselessness.The thoughts come in our minds and are completely contrary to the promises of God’s Word. We feel helpless and defeated. What is the best way to get out of a submission hold? Never let yourself get caught in one! When your attacker first initiates an attempt you must exert maximum effort to escape.
Confess the truth of God’s Word immediately to replace enemy thoughts. Satan the accuser will come to each of us but he has no hold on me.
