In John 10:10, the Word of God reveals the enemy’s ultimate goal of destruction in the life of every believer. You will only be able to overcome the attacks of the devil as you commit to engaging in spiritual warfare.
10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy:
I am come that they might have life, and that they might
have it more abundantly.
In 2 Corinthians 10:3-5, we are admonished that although we are living, moving and functioning in a natural world that we have been given spiritual weapons in order to combat the attacks from the spiritual realm. Once you understand the enemy and the battle that you are facing, you will be better prepared to withstand his calculating, unforeseen attacks.
(2 Corinthians 10:3-5)
3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:
4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty
through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)
5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that
exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into
captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
One of the greatest spiritual weapons given to the believer is Prayer. Your effectual, fervent prayer has the power to tap into the realm of the spirit and begin to shift and affect what is happening in the natural realm. In your fight against your invisible enemy, you must continually look beyond what you see in the natural and learn how to engage the spirit realm. The warfare that you are in is real. The enemy you face is real….but the power of God that is available to every believer is even more real and more powerful. Once you believe God and believe in His power which is at work in your life, you are destined to win!
SCRIPTURES: Ephesians 6:13 – 18, 1 John 3:8, 1 John 4:4
PRAYER: Father, I thank you for the power of God that is at work in me and on my behalf. I thank you that greater is Jesus Christ on the inside of me than the devil which is in the world. I thank you Lord that as you have overcome the world, so can I. Thank you for Your Word and Divine Presence in my life. Thank you for giving me the victory, in Jesus Christ name!
PROPHETIC DECLARATION: PROPHETIC DECLARATION: I decree and declare that the spirit of God will give you the courage and strength to overcome every invisible enemy and that your faith will be strong in Him, in Jesus name!
