“The weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds” 2 Corinthians 10:4, ESV.
When you are attacked by demonic forces, you attack back, but not with the same weapons. You can’t fight fire with fire. You can’t fight hatred with hatred. You can’t fight arguments with arguments. That’s a losing battle. You have to come up higher to where God is, enter His Secret Vault, review the top secret files, and put your spiritual gear on by acknowledging who you are in Christ and what He has already equipped you with. Use your faith. Use the love of God. Use the Word of God. If the enemy wants a war, well a war he’s gonna get. His end has already been decided and so has your victory!
Prayer: Father, help me learn how to fight the right way. Teach me how to war in the Spirit and how to keep the devil under my feet. Show me who I am in you and who you are in me. Show me how to use the spiritual weapons you’ve given me and completely destroy every stronghold off my life. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
“You are not the woman you used to be. You have conquered all thus far, by the might of My strength, and I will continue to sustain you. I have called you out of the darkest place and brought you safe into my loving arms, returned to home once again. Cast away the old! Take on the new garment I have laid before you. I reach for you with My nail-scarred hands. I conquered the grave so that you may lay aside the pain of this world and take root in my love. You are Mine, and I will never let you go. The world around you may feel like rejection, fury, danger, unstable, and ever-changing; though fix your eyes on Me because I am never shaken. In Me, you will find forever security. I bent down and scooped you up off of the filth you once lied in. I have cleansed you and given you My righteousness to wear. Take rest in this, for it is freely given to you. I’ve loved you when you have least felt worthy to be loved. Forget the old, for I have also. I have no recollection of the past, I only see the future I have in store for you. Enlarge your tent, daughter, for I am about to give you surplus. Prepare. Open your vessels and hold out your hands. What you have lacked I am going to provide. You, My daughter, are My pride and joy, and it gives Me great satisfaction to give my child her desires according to My will. Wait expectantly for Me to work in your life. What others have said was impossible will see your Father is a God of possibilities. It is time to move forward. Walk with Me, hold My hand. Together we will walk through your journey, and I will never leave you. I know the road ahead. I know every bend, bump, and curve, and I see beyond what you can. With Me as your guide, you will not fail. I am with you always. Says the Spirit of the Lord.”
Prayer: Father God, thank you for saving me from the pits of my own destruction. I was lost, but You have found me. Give me the strength that I need, and help me to forgive myself as you have already done. You are my Mighty Savior, and my Lord, and I trust you to lead me. I give you all the praise, the honor, and the glory that You so deserve my Lord. In Your name, Amen.
