The enemy wants your joy, peace, health, family, relationships, finances, future, and destiny.
Jesus tells us Satan is set to steal, kill, and destroy! (John 10:10). What then must we do?
We must remember that God is greater, and He has promised life.
Proclamation (declare aloud):
All assignments of the enemy over my life are broken in the name of Jesus!
Satan has no place in me, no power over me, no unsettled claims against me, all have been settled by the blood of Jesus.
In Jesus, I have life, abundant; overflowing life, wholeness, and all-sufficiency. I lack nothing.
All strongholds, witchcraft, and curses are broken in the name of Jesus!
I am set free from the curse of the Law, and I enter into the blessing.
The Lord will fulfill all that He has purposed in my life.
Understand the devil’s assignment
The devil’s main assignment is to bring dullness and deadness to your fellowship with God and His church.
He succeeds by introducing distractions and discouragement into your Christian walk.
The enemy’s strategy is twofold.
First, he distracts Christians from God and His Word.
Thus, cutting them from God, the fountain of living water (John 4:14).
Without abiding in the life of God, death and barrenness take root.
Second, he brings offense leading to demoralization, doubt, and bitterness of the soul.
Hence, the devil’s victim becomes a bitter soul estranged from God and His Church;
a lone sheep, exposed; uncovered, prone to injury and endangerment of life.
Beneath the surface, the devil works to plant deception and roots of bitterness
(Hebrews 12:15 – bitterness here refers to deadly poison, evil, sin).
A tree with bitter roots brings forth poisonous fruits (Deuteronomy 29:18);
Many sins spring up from the poisonous root of bitterness (Galatians 5:19-21).
Thus, instead of bearing good fruit (Galatians 5:22-23),
such a tree brings forth death and destruction to self and others.
Therefore, stay alert and forbid the devil from:
- Stealing God’s Word and promises from your heart.
- Breaking your fellowship with God and His church.
- Corrupting your mind through fear and worldly lusts.
- Killing your God-given dreams, visions, and purposes.
- Destroying your life, faith, and testimony.
Guard your heart against:
- Bitterness, envy, strife, and jealousy.
- Pride, vanity, selfishness, and indifference.
- Disappointments that lead to despondency.
- Unbelief and disobedience towards God’s Word.
- Distractions and idols that take the place of God.
Submit to God
James tells us to “submit to God, resist the devil” and the devil will flee from us (James 4:7).
Thus, bring yourself before God; surrender to Him, and pour out your heart before Him (Psalm 62:8).
In the valley of the shadow of death, David encouraged and strengthen himself in the Lord (1 Samuel 30:6).
Like David, when we purpose within ourselves to cling and to abide in God, we shall win and find God’s help.
We shall find the overcoming strength and anointing to break the enemies’ yoke over our lives.
Find Him, Find Life
Life can only come through knowing God. If you decide to seek the Lord today, you shall find Him.
When your heart is drawn to God, He will make Himself known to you (James 4:8).
If you want to receive the abundance and fullness of God in your life, say this prayer:
I know that I am a sinner, and I ask for Your forgiveness.
I believe You died for my sins and rose from the dead.
I turn from my sins and invite You to come into my heart and life.
I want to trust and follow You as my Lord and Savior.
